We've reported before about Arsenio Hall's return to late night TV with a new syndicated talk show. But now it's a definite go, to premiere in the fall of 2013
CBS TV Distribution, which is syndicating the show, has announced that the show has already been picked up by enough local stations to cover 85% of the country.
According to them, the show has been picked up mainly by the same type of stations that carried his previous talk show back during the 1980's and early 90's - independent stations now affiliated with the CW Network, Fox stations and Tribune Broadcasting stations.
Accorring to CBS distrib sales president Joe DiSalvo: "Most have given the show prime real estate as the lead out from their local late newscasts. They recognize the potential to have the breakout hit in latenight."
