Arsenio Hall coming back to late night TV

Posted: Updated:

"The Dog Pound" is making a comeback. Arsenio Hall is returning to late-night TV. The comedian and actor is teaming up with CBS Television Distribution for a syndicated talk show.  The hour-long show program will compete in some regions with Letterman, CBS's late-night star, and NBC's Jay Leno.

"In the end I'm a comic, and nothing fits the talk-show mode like a stand-up comic," Hall said in an interview Monday. Referring to the crowded field in late-night TV - which includes "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" as well as traditional venues such as "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" - Hall added: "I know there are a lot of shows, but I think there's a space for my show."

Hall recently won the latest season of "Celebrity Apprentice." He's best known for hosting "The Arsenio Hall Show," which ran from 1989 to 1994. 


Hall's new show will debut in the fall of 2013.
