    1988 - 1994; Hall All Day; Fox put him on National Spotlight just like In Living Color, Martin, Living Single, New York Undercover, and Bernie Mac Show. Why they cancelled Wanda at Large and Lil Rel Show is weird. Jay, Aries Spears, Benji, and Jamie Foxx, and of course # 2 GOAT, Eddie does great voice multiple voice impressions !

    I think a daytime show for Arsenio hall would be a great idea. He tried the comeback years back late at night didn't work. A network should pick Arsenio up for a daytime show. I needs to be in the entertainment business. Sean John give me one chance to work for Volt

    My “white kids” would sneak watch Arsenio when he had his show. I was sound asleep. I was going to school as a single parent and was exhausted. I would catch his shows when I could. We were all totally bummed out when the show stopped. He’s was the best late night. Better than the big Johnny Carson.

    When Arsenio had his show, all the other late night show would ask him what black comedians, actors, musicians and movers and shakers they should book. His show was awesome, and I believe he still has the spark. Remember, this isn't his show, and he probably didn't even give his all, but his interview skills are great and with age brings wisdom. (Even though he could still pass for 40)
