Is Arsenio officially back from his break, which — according to bigstory, lasted nearly 2 decades?! This is what he had to say:
It's a huge challenge this time to bring people to the television. Your biggest fan doesn't watch you every night. You hope to get a guy three nights to check you out, the other nights they'll be catching someone else.
Sounds like it.
The show host added:
I'm trying to be in the game. I just got to be better than one guy that's there... Maybe they're setting me up to knock me out, but the bottom line is everybody is being real nice to me.
Looks like Hall's got some competition this time, unlike back in the day when there were much fewer channels, he says. Hold on Chelsea Handler and Jay Leno, this might be a bumpy ride...
He also said this about the show, as reported by deadline:
Basically, what I’ll do is just assert my personality and hope people will hang with me... But the challenges are gigantic now. What I’ve got to be is better than one guy that’s there already. You don’t have to go after Chelsea’s fans or Leno’s fans to be in the game.
He ain't scurred! And according to Deadline, the show will premiere on September 9th, on CBS Television Distribution. Stay tuned to find out what happens!
