Can’t say that I’ve found the time to watch an episode of Arsenio Hall since he’s returned to the late night lineup, but that’s okay — each morning i see a highlight from his show that someone has posted in my timeline.
The majority of my friends on Facebook, black and brown folks, watch the show religiously. Why? To see the stars they love get a chance to shine before they go super nova.
Black talent still has to be on the level of a Jay Z, Lebron James or Will Smith to get a seat on the couch. They have to be the best. This means that Arsenio is where America can go to see who is about to be “next” on the scene. It means that Arsenio is going to be breaking new talent, and on the air, for a while.
