Tonight Show: Arsenio Hall Back On Late Night Television
Arsenio Hall is coming back to late night television this fall and he couldn’t be more excited. The Arsenio Hall Show ran for four strong years with some very memorable moments. Hulk Hogan denied steroid use for the first time on the show, something that was later found to be a lie, Bill Clinton performed “Heartbreak Hotel” on the saxophone, a performance many experts said led to his popularity boost with younger voters during the election year and Jim Henson appeared on the show just 10 days before his death.
But it wasn’t all roses on the show according to Hall. He was interrupted once during his monologue when members of the Queer Nation yelled out during the opening of the show asking Hall why he did not have any homosexual guests on his show, something that was not true. Hall invited Elton John on the show, among many other gay celebrities, often.
But Hall is hoping those types of things don’t happen during his return to late night television. And everyone can expect the “woof” chant to be back as well.
Tonight Show: Arsenio Hall Show Back After 19 Years
Could he be following in the footsteps of Jay Leno, who also left television for a time after being on a show everyone seemed to love? He did take a bit longer to get on TV – it has been almost 19 years since The Arsenio Hall Show aired – but from his new commercial for the show it seems like he is back and ready to stay.
Will he be able to compete with the late night talk shows already airing now? It was the downfall of his show before. Let us know if you are going to be watching the show in the comments below.
Tonight Show: Arsenio Hall Celebrity Apprentice Winner
Back in the summer of 2012 Arsenio Hall was able to beat out a number of other celebrities, including runner-up Clay Aiken, to win Celebrity Apprentice and the $250,000 for the charity of his choice. Although he did have to give all the money to charity, some speculated that Hall was probably hoping he could keep that money to clear his name of the almost $200,000 he had in debt when he filled for bankruptcy in 2009.
