Arsenio Hall talker a go for fall ’13

Syndie latenighter sold in 85% of U.S.

Arsenio Hall’s latenight comeback is on track for a fall 2013 debut. CBS TV Distribution has cleared the show on stations covering 85% of U.S. TV households.

The still untitled show has been cleared largely on the same kind of stations that carried his first show in the late 1980s and early ’90s: Fox affiliates and indie outlets now affiliated with the CW. Tribune Broadcasting’s stations are the show’s core launch group, as announced in June.

“Most have given the show prime real estate as the lead out from their local late newscasts. They recognize the potential to have the next breakout hit in latenight,” said CTD sales prexy Joe DiSalvo.

Hall’s return to latenight was spearheaded in large part by Sean Compton, Tribune Broadcasting’s prexy of programming and entertainment.

“Tribune’s investment in Arsenio reflects our belief in the success of the show, and we are thrilled our broadcast peers are equally excited,” said Compton.
