The Arsenio Hall Show on Sony Entertainment Television (SET) cancelled after one season, despite previously renewed for a second.


The Arsenio Hall Show seen in South Africa on weekdays on Sony Entertainment Television (SET) (DStv 127) has been cancelled after its first season - despite earlier having been renewed for a second season.

"Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season," says the distributor in a statement; although an announcement was previously made that the late night talk show would be back for a second season.

"While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue. Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we'd like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show".

"When I started this adventure we all knew it would be a challenge. I'm gratified for the year we've had and proud of the show we created. I'd like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night," says Arsenio Hall in the statement.

The late night cancellation follows the cancellation news of Chelsea Lately on E! Entertainment (DStv 124).
