The Evolution of Arsenio Hall
Almost 20 years after his first talk show was cancelled, Arsenio is returning with another late-night take show. Will he do the Woof! Woof Woof! thing? Let’s hope not!

Arsenio Hall is born in Cleveland, Ohio. Regarding his name, Hall later says, “Arsenio is a very unique name for a black man. In Greek, it means Leroy.” (That’s a pretty good line.) Since we can’t find a pic of baby Arsenio, we’ll use an interview he did with the Ultimate Warrior. How was his show ever canceled?!
