CBS Television Distribution has sold the show in all of the top 50 markets, adding stations from Sinclair Broadcasting, LIN Television Stations, Belo Corp., Cox Enterprises, Media General, Post-Newsweek Stations, Newport Television, Raycom Media and the Grant Group in addition to Tribune Broadcasting and CBS Television and Local TV stations that initially picked up the show.
"From the day we announced our deal with Arsenio Hall, the response from stations has been overwhelming," DiSalvo said. "Most have given the show prime real estate as the lead out from their local late newscasts. They recognize the potential to have the next breakout hit in late night."
The Arsenio Hall show will debut in fall 2013. Tribune has partnered in the production of the show, providing the anchor station group with its 17 stations, including the top three markets.
