Arsenio hall makes his big return to late night TV this fall on FOX 25. But as most fans know, he's no stranger to late night TV.
On January 3, 1989, "The Arsenio Hall Show" made its debut. During his successful five-year run as Executive Producer, Arsenio provided a forum for cutting edge comedy, politics and the television debut of such pop superstars as Mariah Carey, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Boyz II Men, and countless others. In 1994, Arsenio was again ready to grow and diversify. He resigned from the late night gabfest to pursue other personal and professional interests.
According to his bio on his website, between 1994 and 2012, Arsenio appeared in several television shows and movies including the new "Star Search" on CBS, the HBO Sports Documentary "Magic & Bird: A Courtship of Rivals" which premiered in March, 2010, as well as the A&E two-hour documentary special "The Battle For Late-Night," which premiered in April, 2010. He was also featured in ESPN's "The Announcement" in March, 2012, where he shares his insight and experience surrounding the day of Thursday, November 7, 1991, when Earvin "Magic" Johnson made people stop and watch at the Forum in Inglewood, California, announcing he was HIV-positive and would be retiring from basketball immediately.
On May 20, 2012, Arsenio was crowned the "Celebrity Apprentice" for Season 5 of Donald Trump's hit reality show on NBC, where he competed for his charity, The Magic Johnson Foundation.
Soon after that victory, he announced his highly-anticipated upcoming return to late night television, with a new CBS Television Distribution syndicated late night talk show set to debut on September 9, 2013 on FOX 25.
