The Arsenio Hall Show
On his first night back, Hall seemed a bit rusty around the edges. A lot of his jokes didn't land and the skits featuring "where's he's been" didn't have the crowd howling with uncontrollable laughter. At that point, my cat turned away and called it a night. The show wasn't over however. After a silly "time capsule" sketch, Paula Abdul showed up and told Hall how proud she was of him. You know, I did think of the Chevy Chase Show thing when Goldie Hawn appeared and attempted to stop him from chattering like a window pane. Thankfully Hall wasn't that bad.
The first guest was Chris Tucker, another person who's been "away." Hall asked him a bunch of softball questions (seems like old times!) and Tucker answered them and I really didn't give a heck. To make the show seem even more like old home week, Snoop Dogg showed up and performed, "What's My Name." Hilariously, Arsenio Hall introduced him as "Snoop Doggy Dogg." Ha! That made me night/year. At the end of the show, Hall, Tucker, Abdul all stayed on stage and danced while Snoop did, "Drop It Like It's Hot." I love the kids music!
