NEW YORK — Arsenio Hall is returning to TV’s late-night scene, where he flourished with a talk show two decades ago.
CBS Television Distribution said Monday it’s developing a syndicated nightly talk show with the actor-comic. The show is set to premiere in fall 2013.
Hall, 57, is best known for hosting “The Arsenio Hall Show,” which ran from 1988 to 1994. That show’s place in pop-culture history was clinched in 1992 when Bill Clinton appeared and played “Heartbreak Hotel” on the sax.
Hall was featured in the comedy “Coming to America” (1998) and was a regular on the CBS series “Martial Law” in the late 1990s.
Recently, he won the latest edition of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” AP
