“Celebrity Apprentice” winner Arsenio Hall’s late-night show has been canceled, and Donald Trump is being a real asshole about it.
Hall’s syndicated late-night show, “The Arsenio Hall Show,” was a hit in the early ’90s, but was canceled in 1994. After he beat out Clay Aiken to win “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2012, he was “hired” by Donald Trump and the show was resurrected in 2013. But despite an announcement the show would return for a second season in February, CBS announced Monday it’s been canceled because of low ratings.
Hall also failed to purchase The Clippers via crowdfunding this week, and he took to Twitter to express his sadness and disappointment:
I lost my job … AND The Clippers, in a 48 hour period! #badweek … Love y’all …

Better to have loved and lost …

Hey @MagicJohnson I dreamed that they picked up my show for season 2, then changed their minds, and cancelled the show. Had to be a dream.

Of course Trump had to weigh in with some
encouraging words for his apprentice:
.@ArsenioHall just got “fired”—the people spoke, ratings were terrible. The Apprentice brought him back from the dead, but he blew it!
