Comedian Arsenio Hall has been dealt a blow after U.S. Tv bosses decided to cancel his late night talk show, despite previously renewing it for a second season.

The Coming to America star reprised his role as presenter with The Arsenio Hall Show in September (13), 19 years after his last late night programme went off air.

Executives at CBS Television Distribution (Ctd) decided in February (14) to pick up the show for a second season, but they have since had a change of heart.

In a statement released on Friday (30May14), Hall says, "When I started this adventure with Ctd and Tribune (Tv station group), we all knew it would be a challenge - I'm gratified for the year we've had and proud of the show we created. I'd like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night."
