CBS Television Distribution has opted not to pick up a second season of the syndicated The Arsenio Hall Show.
The distributor renewed the late night talk show for a second season in February, but changed its mind after several major station groups downgraded the program's timeslot.
In a statement, CBSTVD said, ""Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”
Hall added, ""When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, 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."
