At one time, Arsenio Hall was much like the “Black Johnny Carson”. He had built a strong and loyal audience among those who wanted a younger and hipper talk show than the aging Johnny Carson. Hall had a strong audience of minorities and young Whites than would religiously view his show each night. Then he decided to walk away for all that. Now, with much more competition in late night programming than ever with Jon Stewart, Conan O’Brien and CHELSEA LATELY and others, Arsenio Hall is entering the late night derby once again starting on Sep 9. Whether, Hall can build the same sort of loyal late night following like he once did is a very good question. Hall is a great host. He has all of the talent to do it again. But, can he carve out a new audience once again? TV watchers will be tuned in to see what happens here.
