Arsenio Hall Is Fired And Tyra Banks Is Hired!
With the weekend came a huge blow to Arsenio Hall and his loyal band of fans: his talk show has been canceled after only the first season. The news packed an even heavier punch as earlier in the year reports stated the network was happy with the shows performance and had plans to renew Hall’s rebooted show. As in television the proof is in the ratings and numbers for Arsenio’s spirited gabfest had been on a downward spiral since the premiere. CBS decided to invest again in the ‘Arsenio’ brand after Hall’s career saw a massive reboot after a successful stint on Celebrity Apprentice last year. His original talk show aired to critical fanfare and ratings success from 1989-1994.
On the heels of CBS’ cancellation came ABC declaring their support of Tyra Banks who will once again take to Daytime TV to host and produce a yet unnamed project for the 2015 television season. Tyra looks to take on the likes of Wendy Williams and Queen Latifah in the daytime arena to produce a ‘panel-based’ show in the spirit of ‘The View’ or ‘The Talk’.
Best of luck to both gabbers as the they venture on to new endeavors.
