Arsenio Hall

3 Networks 'Very Interested'

in New Talk Show

Arsenio Hall's long-awaited talk-show comeback is finally picking up steam ... TMZ has learned 3 networks are "very interested" in signing the comic to a TV deal.

Hall -- who was crowned champion on "Celebrity Apprentice" last night -- has been gunning to get back behind a desk ever since "The Arsenio Hall Show" went off the air back in 1994.

Now, with his newfound Trump-powered momentum ... sources tell us NBC and two other broadcast groups are all making a play for Arsenio ... though it's unclear if Hall would fit in daytime or late-night.

Hall is a late-night legend ... who, along with "The Simpsons," helped build FOX into a juggernaut when they premiered in 1989.

Fist pumps and whoops all around.

He is a disgusting pig. NO WAY I would EVER watch his show. NO WAY he deserved to win Celebrity Apprentice. Very disappointed in Mr. Trump's decision. Should have been Aubrey. Arsenio was lazy and a complete jerk the entire show!!!

"One tends to show one's true self under pressure. So when he called Aubrey O'Day very un-gentlemanly things I saw who he was. Clay Aiken is a class act and raised triple the money. Trump's choice had more to do with future "Arsenio" appearances than about who was the better player. "


CLAY IS AS MUCH AS A DIVA,IF NOT MORE THAN ARSENIO. THEY ARE BOTH IDIOTS. ARSENIO IS FAKE AS HELL AND CLAY IS A HAS-BEEN THAT NEVER WAS. UGH!

"WTF He rode everybody coattails and he has no respect for women.......Not a fan of clay either ......aubrey
was the workhorse."

AUBREY WAS NOT A WORKHORSE. SHE JUST "TALKED" A LOT ABOUT HOW MUCH SHE WORKED. NO WONDER DIDDY FIRED HER. HER ATTITUDE SUCKS AND SHE DOESN'T HAVE A CONSIDERATE BONE IN HER BODY. SHE TALKS AND WALKS OVER ANYONE WHO WILL LET HER. PLUS,SHE IS NOT ATTRACTIVE. THERE IS NOTHING TO BE JEALOUS OF. SHE IS SO INSECURE.

"Arsenio didn't deserve to win. He only raised half as much money as Clay Aiken and his vulgar little comedy show was not nearly as good as Clay's singing show in the final task."

CLAY'S SINGING WAS SO LAME AND ARSENIO'S JOKES WERE SO CORNY. THEY BOTH SUCK.

"Clay Aikens got dupped again! He should have won Idol and he should have won "Celebrity" . "


THE RIGHT MAN WON IDOL(RUEBEN) AND APPRENTICE. CLAY IS LUCKY PEOPLE STILL REMEMBER HIM FROM THAT SILLY TALENT SHOW. HE'S UNORIGINAL AND HIS LAME SINGING IS FOR CRUISE SHIPS.

CLAY NOR AUBREY WON MUCH FOR THEIR RESPECTIVE CHARITIES,WHEREAS,ARSENIO WON QUITE A FEW TIMES. IT IS WHAT IT IS.

Arsenio, Arsenio, Arsenio - You played the game well. You are like a homeless "crybaby" hustler on the street. I do remember your show. I didn't tune in much then & I will defiantly not tune in now. I do wish you luck though.

I was shocked that Arsenio made it to the top two - much less won Apprentice. Of course, the problem was with the top four. There is NO WAY Lisa or Aubrey could be the apprentice. 
The problem with the "game" is that the risk takers and best leaders get voted off early on, leaving the loudest and best manipulators as the players able to slide under the radar. 
Teresa should have been one of the first voted off but she was smart enough to keep quiet and stay out of disputes, as was Arsenio. Lisa was a loudmouth, but she caused so much fear that no one - except Diana, wanted to speak out against her and call her on her unprofessionalism, lest they get her rage in the next round. Lisa may be smart and a good worker, but she should have been voted off much earlier, has the players called her out. Aubrey's problem was her youth and total lack of diplomacy. She was in no way a team player and worst of all, she doesnt know what she doesnt know, a very dangerous combo in the biz world. She had to go.
So, Clay and Arsenio. Clay raised double what Arsenio did. His presentation was just as good, if not better. Why Arsenio? Was it because Clay went off on Diana? Diana does seem to hold some influence on the Donald. Hmmm.
Confession: I lived in L.A. and was in the party scene back when Arsenio had his show. He used to come in with his entourage - before celebs had entourages. He was so rude and arrogant. Other stars like Stallone, Drew Barrymore, Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe etc., would come in and just have drinks, mingle in the VIP area. Not Arsenio. He was a total jerk. He would sit ON a booth, on the back part with his feet on the seat, surrounded by his goons (like anyone would want to swarm him) and survey the crowd. A real douchebag. I hope his years of unemployment have taught him some humility.

Forget this piece of human garbage. He likes to bully women by vulgarly degrading them. Women in the business should not help to promote this guy. To do so...is to sell out your gender for your personal gain. In which case, you would deserve his vulgarity.
