Someone Give Arsenio Hall a Talk Show

Arsenio.

He'd take it! Says the formerly fast-burning phenom of the talk-show game at TCA this weekend: "I think it's a perfect time for that personally. Give me a microphone. My son's 11 and he can drive himself to school. I'm ready to host!" But seriously: "It's pretty crowded out there. I'm not sure if it's too crowded for a 55-year-old guy to re-emerge, but if they give me a little daylight I'm gonna slide into it." For the record, Arsenio means "daylight" metaphorically. He was not explaining how he would react if someone gave him a copy of 1996 Sylvester Stallone tunnel-disaster movie Daylight. [Deadline]
