The Arsenio Hall Show is off to a promising start, delivering some of the best ratings for a debut talk show in seven years. The show’s premiere was #1 against all late-night talk shows.

The show is performing especially well for Tribune’s station group, with some markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, and San Diego seeing percentage ratings increases in the triple-digits. Nationally, the show’s household ratings for the week nearly doubled the ratings for the same time period one year ago.
