Arsenio Hall and Brian Williams Have a 48-Hour Feud


In a Monday Nightly News segment about late night hosts, Brian Williams presented a Brady Bunch-style graphic of hosts including Conan O’Brien, Andy Cohen, Stephen Colbert, and more, but Arsenio Hall was notably left out. The following night, Hall addressed the omission on his show and delivered a request to Brian Williams: “If you’re doing a story about late night, all I ask if that you mention me. You don’t even have to use a photo. I know how journalism is these days. Use Samuel Jackson – it doesn’t even have to be my photo.” Thanks in part to a threat by Hall’s guest Suge Knight, Williams swiftly responded with an apology on Wednesday, which Hall accepted during last night’s show. Apparently all three are back to being best friends now, and Pete Holmes even got a shout-out, so this feud ended almost too well.
