‘Arsenio Hall Show’ Still Looking Good Despite Night-Two Dip

It's providing big timeslot gains and is on par with Leno and Kimmel in young-adults demo

New latenight talker “The Arsenio Hall Show” held up pretty well in its second night Tuesday, earning a competitive finish with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel in the young-adults demo.

According to Nielsen, the primary runs of “Arsenio Hall” averaged a 1.5 household rating on Tuesday — down from Monday’s 1.9. The two-night average of 1.7 for “Arsenio” is up a significant 70% over what its stations were averaging a year ago in the time period.

The show is also performing about 13% better on average than its lead-in.

In the adults 18-49 demo, “Arsenio” on Tuesday averaged a 0.7 rating in Nielsen’s markets with Local People Meters, which put it slightly behind NBC’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (0.8), on par with ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.7) and ahead of others including CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” and TBS’ “Conan” (both at 0.5). (The broadcast programs are at a slight disadvantage in such comparisons, as viewing levels are lower from 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. than the 11 o’clock hour occupied by Hall. And last night, there may have been delays in start times due to President Obama’s address on Syria.)

“The Arsenio Hall Show” is produced by Eye Productions Inc., in association with Arsenio Hall Communications Ltd. and Octagon Entertainment Productions, and distributed by CBS Television Distribution. Arsenio Hall, John Ferriter and Neal Kendall are executive producers.

The show is anchored by the 17 stations in the Tribune Broadcasting station group, which is also a partner in the show.

Tuesday night’s guests were Ice Cube and Lisa Kudrow.
