Arsenio Hall Tops Late Night Competition in Debut

Syndicated show beat Leno, Letterman, and Kimmel


Syndication in 95 percent of the country was enough for Arsenio Hall to top late night during his Monday return.

The host launched his self-titled talker from Tribune Broadcasting with wins in both the adults 18-49 and 25-54 demographics, besting original competition in Big Four efforts Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night With David Letterman and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
