    Everyone surprised by this say, “Woof!”


  • Trish Chasity

    Still have plenty of time to be better than the rest. Hard to make another Thriller (like Michael Jackson). So for Arsenio, you either quit it, or get with it!

  • Brett

    Hall, along with letterman, go home.

      What's your problem with the First Amendment, racist illiterate teabagger?

  • Stan Heck

    CBS owns this show. It has a distribution deal with Tribune. IF this show works (and I hope it does) then CBS will move him over to take over “Letterman” once Dave decides to hang it up. … Craig Ferguson will take over for Letterman. He isn't that good…

    • Rondo

      I agree Letterman is not that good and he is not funny maybe looking

  • Johnnie Walker

    Funny how he now LEADS in ratings, where's all the hate remarks now?

  • ty

    I watched it and it was just OK…His monologue was not funny and the skit(s) did not appeal to me. Imma have to pass or watch it every now then.

  • Aaron

    Bottom line- he sucks!

  • Ronzo

    I think Arsenio show and Bethenny show must go, I'm very tired of late night shows that are of a canned type style. I think the only funny and entertaining late time is Craig Ferguson show. I skip shows commercials that advertise shows that come across canned with a political context and propaganda and I do believe that is why Jay Leno was canceled, I did watch Jay as Letterman stinks and Kimmel is an idiot.
