Arsenio Hall ShowAfter weeks of speculation and dismal ratings, the Arsenio Hall show will not return for a second season.

The show opened to stellar ratings (1.9 in households, 1.0 in adults 18-49) but wasn’t able to maintain even after a highly-rated Prince appearance and boost from good-friend Eddie Murphy.

That’s show business for you!

Maybe BET will pick it up.  Better luck next time Arsenio!
