For Arsenio Hall, being back on television “feels like an incredible blessing.”
The iconic talk show host — whose late night comeback show is rumored to be on the brink of cancelation — says the best part is that it has become a family affair.
“One of the things that was important to me was to let my son see this,” he reveals during an appearance this Sunday (October 20) on OPRAH’S NEXT CHAPTER.
In the interview — filmed at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles — Arsenio also talks about the significance of being one of the only African-American hosts in late-night today and what he has learned in the two decades away from the spotlight.
He shares the reason behind his move to L.A., advice he has received from friendly rival Jay Leno, and recalls the first time Arsenio Jr. realized just how famous he really is.
