Indie Wire is reporting that CBS Television Distribution will not be renewing ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ after all. As previously reported, the late night talk show survived its first season and was on board for a second with its larger-than-life host, Arsenio Hall. However, it appears that execs at CTD have had a change of heart and are pulling the plug.

“Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” said CBS Television Distribution in a press statement today, adding that, “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 their support of the show.”

No word yet on when his last show will air.

“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me,”  commented Tyra. “I’m excited to be partnering with Disney-ABC to usher in a new era of lifestyle, beauty and entertainment that will inspire women to be the CEO of their lives via honesty, humor and the newest tips and tricks without being intimidating or precious.
