Winning Celebrity Apprentice has paid off big time for Arsenio Hall. The 57 year old has inked a deal with CBS Television for a syndicated nightly talk show to air Mondays through Fridays.The new show is scheduled to debut in the fall of 2013.


“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 an announcement Monday.

“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,” he added.

From 1989 through 1994 The Arsenio Hall Show was in living rooms across the country and we were all watching. Guest included 2Pac, Bo Jackson,Ice-T, Snoop Dogg, and Halle Berry and Vanilla Ice.

Hall’s playful banter with audiences and guests and his ability to appeal to a young and diverse demographic made the show a surprise success. His distinctive chanting of “Woof, Woof, Woof!” while pumping his fist caught on across the country in 1991, and quickly became a pop culture sign for enthusiastic approval.

Hall is from Cleveland, Ohio home of the Cleveland Browns and the dawg pound. That's where the woof, woof, woof chant came from.
