Less than three months before celebrating his one-year anniversary, Arsenio Hall’s late-night talk show has been cancelled. According to producers, the series faded in the ratings after it’s stellar launch and failed to bouncs back.

“Unfortunately, ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ will not return for a second season,” CBS Television Distribution said in a statement today. “While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue.”

“Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for the support of the show.”

In response to the disappointing news, Hall said he was proud to make a comeback, following his previous late-night stint in 1989. “When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribute, we all knew it would be a challenge — I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created,” the host said. “I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible each night.”
