Please don't waste your time with this.

Dumb, racist, self-inflated ego etc. These are words I use to describe Arsenio and his show.

Everyone talks about how he has helped the black community and is a pioneer FOR the black community. Look I'm not black but I know he's NO Martin Luther King, Malcolm X or Nelson Mandela.

Just cause he helped a few rappers back in the early 90's rise to fame (most of whom are virtually unknown today) doesn't make him this amazing person that black people seem to think he's a God in the black community.

More over, his show has no eclectic mix, rather than fighting the war on racism his show seems to be pandering on towards racism. His guests mainly consists of African-Americans which is by no means a problem but it wouldn't hurt to mix it up. Instead it's almost as if he's trying to drive home a point.

I watch all the late night talk shows, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno, Conan, Craig Ferguson, David Letterman etc. and I've seen an equal ratio of ethnicities within the guests on every other talk show but the Arsenio Hall Show.

If you think I'm making this up, check out the stats on IMDb whom his guests were from the first episode of this show that aired to the latest episode and do the math with the ratio of black to white guests.

What would be a more interesting calculation is doing the ratio of interesting to uninteresting guests i.e. 0:100 Other than the race card, he is also SO self involved and just LOVES when everyone goes on about how amazing it is that he's back and how much he made a difference in the black community. He just eats it up thinking he's the king of talk and probably considers himself better than Johnny Carson, the legend of talk himself. It's almost as if he pays his guest before the show to mention him and how great he is.

Finally, the show is just plain not funny or entertaining and lacks the true value of being a "Talk Show". Really if you're going to be a talk show host, learn to communicate better with your guests and pick better questions to ask.

I did not see any of his earlier shows until I did my research on youtube only to find that this guy is literally trying to bring the early 90's back to the 2010's?? Let it go! Come up with something new! I'm going to sum this up by saying, you are better off watching ANYTHING else. Even Chelsea Lately, The Pete Holmes Show and The Eric Andre Show are way better than this crap.

By writing this I can only hope I've saved someone's valued time by convincing them not to watch this complete drivel.
