*Back in the spotlight due to his “Celebrity Apprentice” victory, Arsenio Hall is said to be discussing a return to the syndicated talk show circuit.


Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva reports:

 I hear Hall has been in talks with CBS TV Distribution about a project that also may involve Tribune. There are no deals in place but if conversations materialize, Hall will likely film a presentation. CBS TV Distribution declined comment.

Hall mentioned a desire to return to late night during the media blitz following his “Celebrity Apprentice” win a week ago

A deal with CBS TV Distribution would mark a reunion for the company and Hall. His syndicated late-night Arsenio Hall Show, which ran from 1989 to 1994, was produced by CBS TV Distribution predecessor Paramount Domestic TV.
