BREAKING – Los Angeles, California – “The Arsenio Hall Show” has been canceled because of low ratings, ending Hall’s late-night comeback bid after a single season. CBS Television Production had previously announced Hall’s syndicated show would be back for a second season, but faced the prospect of stations moving it to lesser time slots as ratings fell. The Congressional Black Caucus in Washington, D.C. is now alleging that the show’s cancellation was another form of racism, because Hall was not given an efficient amount of time to learn how to be funny or entertaining.
