Jay Leno makes his first post-“Tonight Show” appearance to help make the pickup announcement
CBS Television Distribution has renewed “The Arsenio Hall Show” for a second season.
Hall’s syndicated late night return started back in September and has averaged 6.7 million unique viewers weekly. The show touts his audience’s median age of 50.1 years old, the youngest in late night television for broadcast TV.
In his first post-“Tonight Show” TV appearance, Jay Leno stopped by Wednesday’s episode to help Hall announce the second season pickup.
“Since 9/9/13, I’ve been waking up without an alarm clock,” said Hall in a statement. “Producing and hosting my late-night talk show brings me great joy. I’m back where I belong! Thanks to my partners at CBS Television Distribution and Tribune.”
Co-producer Tribune Broadcasting airs the show on 17 of its channels, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. It also airs on stations from the Sinclair Broadcast Group, CBS Television Stations, Cox Television Stations, LIN Television and Post-Newsweek Stations station groups.
