Shuffle comes one month after latenight syndie yakker's debut
Eric Pankowski, senior VP of programming and development for “Arsenio Hall” distributor CBS TV Distribution, will step in as interim showrunner while Hall mounts a search for a new exec producer.
“Arsenio Hall” bowed Sept. 9 to promising ratings but viewership of the latenight syndie talker has dipped since then. A source indicated that Kendall’s exit was spurred in an effort to find a better creative fit for the comedian.
Hall and Octagon Entertainment’s John Ferriter also exec produce the strip for CBS and Tribune Studios.
