Arsenio Hall returns to late night

Well Arsenio is back and he will be back tonight. Are you ready to see him again? Do we really care? Have he been gone too long?

Arsenio Hall made history in the early ’90s as the first national African-American late night TV talk show host.

Aimed at a hip, young demographic, “The Arsenio Hall Show” was famous for its trademark “woof woof” audience chant and never-know-who-might-stop-by guest list. The show ran from 1989 to 1994 and boasted memorable moments, some of which have become a part of pop culture lore: Bill Clinton playing the saxophone during the ’92 campaign; Magic Johnson’s first interview after being diagnosed with HIV; and Hall’s tense show the night the Los Angeles riots broke out.
On Monday, nearly 20 years after his original run, the 57-year-old entertainer heads back to TV with a new show, “Arsenio.” Where has he been? How will he carve out his own niche in a very crowed late night field that includes Leno, Fallon, Letterman, Kimmel and Stewart? To paraphrase a certain someone, “These are the things that make us go ‘hmm.'”2012: Arsenio Hall returning to late night
Arsenio Hall: I have been working hard in just a different element of life, trying to balance my own and do some things that are beyond show business and beyond rooms and (studio) lots like this.
I left this business for something I didn’t even know I was seeking. I just knew it wasn’t in my schedule from sun up to sun down in Hollywood. I left the show for probably balancing my life — I wanted my relationships to be different. I wanted to be with my family and my woman. It was a point where I felt I don’t want to leave this earth without a kid. There were a lot of things going on…
I want to do all those things that I wish my dad could have done with me. My mom and my dad worked very hard when I was young; I was a latch-key kid. I not only wanted to have a kid; I wanted to do it a certain way.

KRIS– Kris Jenner Talk Show

Well, Well, Well that Kris (Kardashian) Jenner has hit the daytime talk show circuit. Will she have what it takes to take on the daytime crew, that is non- reality?  Kris Jenner’s long-touted new daytime talk show, Kris, hit FOX airwaves on July 15, kicking off the program’s six-week mid-summer trial period. Kris seems super stoked about her new endeavor, but were her fans as enthusiastic? There’s one way to find out. Let’s go to the ratings!

The numbers are in, and it looks like Kris did just fineeven without trotting out Kim Kardashian’s new baby as a publicity stunt!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s first broadcast beat out time slot competition Katie, Steve Harvey and daytime mainstay Dr. Phil in Kris’s hometown of  Los Angeles. The show was reportedly the winner among women 25-54 and 18-49, which made Kris the top dog in the 3 p.m. hour in that city.

Kris also did well in the other major test markets of New York, Dallas and Philadelphia, though it faced stiff competition from another new entry into the daytime TV race, The Real.

During this summer run, five Fox stations are testing out the talk show, in the hopes of launching it in syndication in 2014. We’re only two days in, so it’s way too early to see how it’s really going, but these early reports seem to be good news for Kris! Let’s see if she can keep it up.

New talk show: Tiny Tonight

Chile lets get right into it. I see anything that Tameka “tiny” Harris puts her mind to, it happens. Now you know on her reality series on VH1 “Family Hustle” she talks about having a talk show and we all know her best friend and hairstylist Shakina was acting a fool cause she wanted to be on the show. Well it has happened. Tiny will be hosting her own talk show and it will be on VH1 on December 9 for a one hour special. i am guessing if it goes well it will probably be more shows. Alongside her will be Ms  dot com herself Tamar Braxton, Trina, and this chick Claudia Jordan. So whatever happened to nikki nicole? You know she is on Kandi’s web show “Kandi Koated Nights”, Now this is the Peppermint Tea right here, I know she filmed the pilot with Tiny some months back, chile THE SHADE IS REAL in show business, I guess she traded her for this other chick Claudia Jordan.

Also what in the world is that Shakina going to be doing, because I did see some behind the scenes shots with her getting all dolled up. Lawd I hope this wont be one big hot ghetto mess. Lets bow our heads in prayer. (lol)
