‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ Exec Producer Neal Kendall Exits

Shuffle comes one month after latenight syndie yakker's debut

“The Arsenio Hall Show” has made a big change at the top, with exec producer/showrunner Neal Kendeall stepping down.

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.
