HSK Exclusive – Arsenio Hall knows all too well what it’s like to be a Black bonafide talent being overshadowed by less than talented Caucasian counterparts.

That could be why the one time reigning King of Late Night Talk TV seems to be sending out subliminal messages exposing the “Blurred Lines” between Black and White — not only in the world of entertainment, but also in order of precedence… even when it comes to at least one celebrity homicide.

“If Justin Bieber had gotten shot in Tupac’s car, we’d know more.” -Arsenio Hall

You’ll recall… early last month, the network cancelled The Arsenio Hall Show after just one season. This, while Arsenio was left to stand up against an apparently united power of the Jimmy’s. Arsenio seems to now stand alongside the likes of Dave Chappelle, who previously turned his back on Tinseltown.

What’s out there…

“Dave Chappelle joked that Black people have come from a broth of unsolved mysteries.”

  1. I don’t understand people that have millions of dollars will still walk around with some jacked up teeth..

  2. I’m guessing, he wasn’t surprised that his show was canceled after one season, that is unfortunate…How many black male talk shows r out there now…Steve Harvey? who else?

  3. The Arsenio Hall show was horrible! Race had nothing to do with it being cancelled! From his nervous looks to his bad questions, the show was doomed from the start! I could not watch that show for more than five minutes.

  4. LOL! right!! the stuff steve talk about on his show is wayyyyy different from his radio show, that talk show he got is coooneristic!!, but he’s a FOOOOL on FAMILY Feud tho.!

  5. Hollywood needs to implode, no good comes from it. This country is dying because of the nuts that inhabit it. Arsenio still has his sanity…Thank God!!!

      • Was he on CBS? Not here.

        The truth is that when he was hot in the 1980s he had all the black and a lot of the white audience. And deservedly so. His show was hip and fresh.

        This time he had a small black and no white audience. You can’t stay on the air with that demo, no matter how talented you may be.

        The late night shows have shifted to suit the younger demo, heck even Dave saw it and knew it was time to let the Jimmys reign. Arsenio s a little younger than Dave, but he’s still near 60.

        It just isn’t his time.

  6. How they did Arsenio was wrong!

    TELL ME why that CBS late night show is still on after Letterman?

    I dont even know who that British guy is. Whats the name of the show?

    …..ugh hugh… I’ ll wait! (Crickets)

  7. CBS is investing all of their time and money in Stephen Colbert when he hosts The Late Show. Craig Ferguson is pissed to because he wanted to host The Late Show and he was turned down.

    • I think he was right to quit before he was fired. He is funnier than Colbert to me, but then I don’t watch him much. He has good different guests than anyone else.

  8. I loved it! I was hoiked from the first episode, with Snoop freestystyling, it was amazing! The haters had to bow down, or bow out, im sure they had a meeting and decided he had to go! Im mad about it, pink people need to stop being so boring and greedy and jealous!

    • The pink people were bored. When you bore the pink people in late night you’re OUT.

      You think the network brass is jealous and greedy because they want to sell ad time and make a profit? That’s the reason they’re in business. They’d be all over a black host who can pull a good number. It’s all about the green.

  9. Why keep asking & begging the White man for everything? The top four most influential celebrities on the Forbes list for 2014 is Black. Surely with that economic power we can buy TV/radio studios, stations. But we want to continue to play that victim woe as me, look how the White man treat us role. Instead of doing our own thing.

    • The hollywood mafia will not allow any black man or woman to own shit in hollywood. That’s a fact! The few black men who have hundreds of millions of dollars are not going to help the black race. They know better. They know they will be shut down!

    • If a black man or woman was running/owning a major network they would do the same thing. You have to sell ads to make money and if your ratings are low you can’t sell ad time. It’s simple. Unless you are on an all black network, you have to appeal to whites too. If every black person in America watched but no white folks did the outcome will always be the same. Arsenio’s success came from having crossover appeal just like Eddie. It just has faded over the years like anyone else who is past their prime.

  10. Not even Arsenio’s family watched his show! People want to believe what they want to believe! Everybody believes that his horrible show was canned because of his skin color! Nope! He sucks and that is that!

  11. HE SAID FAREWELL 1992 AS THE NUMBER 1 TALK. OF LATE NIGHT THEN CAME BACK 20 YEARS STARTED BOTTOM NOW HE’S NOT HERE.HE’S CANCELED AND HAD A LOT TO COMPETE WITH SUCH AS JIMMY KIMMEL ,JIMMY FALLON AND DAVID LETTER AND SETH MYERS WHICH IS JUST AT HIS BEST ON SNL BUT ARSENIO YOUR TIME WAS UP WHEN U CAME BACK IN 2013

  12. Steve Harvey is on FOUR TIMES a day here with Family Feud twice and his talk show twice between 11 am and 6 pm. Cooneristic is the new black and paid.

  13. His show sucked I don’t care what color he is. I was watching with my brother and he said WHERE THE BLACK WOMEN AT? Nuff said. Without BW riding for and supporting them most BM celebs are sunk …till they get that white audience and he did not this time around. Shun your BW audience and your shit will SINK!

  14. True, many black women are shying away from black men who have never been married or are married to a white women. BW ain’t ridin’ or dyin’ for BM like the 1980s or 1990s.

  15. Preach @Anon! Its real out there. Times have changed. Ride or die is dead and one sided loyalty is for suckas.

  16. Arsenio had the worst show on tv thats why it was canceled. Even the huge talent he had on the show couldn’t save it. Thats really real…

  17. Arsenio Hall is coon who loves white women but expect black people to support his sorry a-s-s. His show sucked.

    • You ain’t saying nothing but the truth these sambos want all the perks of whites women and flossing mixed kids but expect Black women to ride or die again, one sided loyalty is for suckas.

      NAME ME THE ONE BLACK FEMALE CELEB WITH A WHITE MAN WHO HAS THE SUPPORT OF BLACK MEN THERE IS NOT A DAMN ONE but they expect BW to ride for them G T F O!!!!!!!!

  18. When Obama was first elected Pres. (by Oprah-who has been ignored by him and his bossy jealous ass wife) Networks started hiring Black females as hosts or co hosts for talk shows. Wendy Williams, and others. They said it was a political thing. Well, now it seems they don’t want blacks. Forget about Latinos. George Lopez lost his show too and I wonder if it is because he told Letterman?? that he hated Jay Leno. Man that was a mistake. Cuz his show was canned couple months later. Arsenio Hall I like. He is mature, seems nice and loves his son and poor soul needs money. But white honchos changing—they canned Craig Ferguson. Yep. So they let him quit, just like Larry King. Saying he wanted to spend time with family. After scandal about his relationship with his sister in law-paying her rent, cars, and then his wife, attempted suicide after the scandal was made public on TV. Why it took so long? I read the story almost 8 months before. And it was true. Enquirer? But when his wife, a former pill popping addict attempted a fake suicide guess he knew his time was up. So he gracefully quit. Why he has show on Ora. My wish is that they hire and I am fair—some Latino women on talk shows-and men. The VIEW–has had Asian, always white, black women but never a Latina woman. WHY??? Is it because Barbara evil ass Walters feared friction from Latinas after she pulled that evil stunt on Ricky Martin? Pretending she wanted to visit celebs in their homes? ( what an arrogant fool. Didn’t his people warn him about her??) WEll he career went down the toilet. Now they want some men on View. White men. Ditto with Talk show. No Latinas. Asian, Jew Osborne who they say had Leah Remini fired-she wasn’t funny. Black but no Latina. Racism exists folks. Can someone reply and give me intelligent reasons why Latinos are still, as George Lopez said-
    back in the Amos and Andy days.? So many multi talented Latino actors have never been given more roles to advance. Esai Morales, others. Damn those shows. Also no Native Americans, India? I think a couple have been on. The list goes on. Arsenio Hall I pray God will open another door for you.

    • You on the wrong page if you expect my Black ass to give a F about who is hiring Latinos!! You used to mammies butlers and kneegrows caping. Ain’t gonna happen.

  19. ”Talent” sure seems to be thrown around with little thought. Arsenio is nothing but a coat tail riding house boy for Eddie.

  20. never watched arsenios nerw show,

    can’t get into black shows because they get the axe quick.

    there were plenty of black shows in the 90’s and early 00’s but we know the story they were all cancelled even though most of them brought good ratings.

  21. The Arsenio Hall Show…1st time ’round… came out at a time when it was something new and fresh. His comeback failed because Hall tried desperately in recapturing a past era that left him in all a former shadow of self.

  22. Funny how he wants to talk about “being a black man down” right after the WHITE MAN (AKA his slave master) cancels his show. Ha ha, what a sucka. Maybe he can scrub the white man’s toilet now? LOL

  23. 2 more things: #1 Arsenio’s gay ass (and every other wack celeb out there) needs to stop name-dropping pac (his soul must be crying out with embarrasment)
    #2 Chapelle has now sold his soul. Yes he turned his back before but look him up now, who you think is getting him all that publicity? Fuckboy Chris Rock has white slave masters too and he loves eating obama’s ass crack. Later!

  24. Arsenio had a good show, but he just really wasn’t in step with the times.He could be gay, however, for all we know.
