The Hollywood Reporter reports:
The late-night talk show from CBS Television Distribution has already been sold in all top 10 markets and 17 of the top 20, covering 52 percent of the country.
The project will see the former host of The Arsenio Hall Showreteam with CBSTVD, whose previous incarnation, Paramount Domestic Television, oversaw his syndicated late-night talker that ran from 1989-94.
“We’re excited to welcome Arsenio back to the family and partnering on his new, late-night syndicated talk show,” CBSTVD president John Nogawski said in announcing the news Monday. “Arsenio had a substantial following with his previous late-night show, and that same 18-34 audience is now right in the middle of the late-night core audience of 35-54. Years ago, he transcended time periods and attracted a crossover audience while bringing a fresh perspective to late night. That same need in the market exists today as when we originally launched. We are looking forward to the same success with Arsenio’s seasoned expertise and appeal in this genre.”
Hall’s new Monday-Friday entry will bow in fall 2013, with CBSTVD partnering with Tribune broadcasting stations for the show, which already has been sold in the top 10 markets and 17 of the top 20 — covering 52 percent of the country. With Tribune aboard, the strip will launch on 17 stations including WPIX New York and KTLA Los Angeles at 11 p.m. and WGN Chicago at 10 p.m.

Arsenio Hall is returning to late-night TV. He’s signed for a syndicated show with CBS Television Distribution to begin airing in the fall of 2013, it was announced Monday. It’s familiar territory for Hall, who hosted “The Arsenio Hall Show” between 1989 and 1994. That late-night syndicated talk show was produced by Paramount Domestic Television, which is now CBS Television Distribution.
“It’s an amazing feeling to be going home to my old friends and colleagues and firing upour night thing,” Hall said in statement. “Let’s get busy … Again!”
“Years ago, he transcended time periods and attracted a crossover audience while bringing a fresh perspective to late night,” Nogawski said. “That same need in the market exists today as when we originally launched. We are looking forward to the same success with Arsenio’s seasoned expertise and appeal in this genre.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Arsenio Hall is returning to TV’s late-night scene, where he flourished with a talk show two decades ago.
CBS Television Distribution says it is developing a syndicated nightly talk show with the 57-year-old actor and comedian. The company said Monday that the show is set to premiere in fall 2013.
Hall is best known for hosting the Emmy Award-winning ‘‘Arsenio Hall Show,’’ which ran from 1989 to 1994. That show’s place in pop-culture history was clinched in 1992 when then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton appeared and played ‘‘Heartbreak Hotel’’ on the saxophone.
Hall was featured in the 1988 Eddie Murphy comedy ‘‘Coming to America’’ and was a regular on the CBS series ‘‘Martial Law’’ in the late 1990s.
Recently, he won the latest edition of NBC’s ‘‘Celebrity Apprentice.’’
The mere fact Arsenio Hall was a contestant on Donald “Chump” Trumps Celebrity Apprentice is the reason I will NOT be watching his latest attempt to remain in the Hollywood spotlight.
Any Black American who spends a second laughing & grinning in Donald Birther Trumps ugly face, is nothing motr than your typical house nigger, in my UNhumble opinion.
Good luck with that comeback late night TV show….Arsenio.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Developed by Graham Yost and starring Timothy Olyphant, Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard’s short story “Fire in the Hole.” In Season 3, Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens (Olyphant) faced off against dirty politics, hidden fortunes, a mysterious criminal ringleader named Limehouse, and Quarles, an ambitious gangster from the underbelly of Motor City.
This January, Raylan will start to pick at the thread of a cold case over 30 years in the making, unraveling a riddle that echoes all the way back to his boyhood and his criminal father’s bad dealings. Meanwhile Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) finds his grip on Harlan loosening due to a Pentecostal preacher with a penchant for theatrics and a knack for manipulation to rival his own.
The series co-stars Walton Goggins as ‘Boyd Crowder;’ Nick Searcy as Givens’ longtime friend and boss ‘Chief Deputy Art Mullen;’ Jacob Pitts as ‘Deputy Marshal Tim Gutterson;’ Erica Tazel as ‘Deputy Marshal Rachel Brooks;’ and Joelle Carter as ‘Ava Crowder.’ Yost wrote the pilot and serves as Executive Producer/Writer on the series.

When I first ventured on to the internet" via AOL political chat rooms, the same question came up...a lot! That was back in 1994.
It always puzzled me because common logic and reasoning would have made the question a moot issue. Everything we read about history in elementary, junior high school, high school and college is about "white history".
I often wondered, back in those early days of the internet, …
