made television history as the first African-American late night talk show host. Now, he and CBS Television Distribution are about to make his long-awaited return to the venue with a brand-new show set to air next fall.
The Arsenio Hall Show, which aired from 1989 to 1994, is best known for the "Doggpound", where the audience goes "Woof! Woof! Woof!" with their fists.
In 1992, the show had then-Presidential candidateperformed a saxophone cover of Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel", which not became an unforgettable moment on television, but also led most to believe that it helped Clinton get elected into the White House.
Over the years, there have been attempts of duplicating Arsenio's success with several such as The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show, Vibe and The Wanda Sykes Show, but they've only lasted one season or less.
