My daughter, definitely a product of the '60s and now a full-blown liberal yuppie, is an Arsenio Hall fan. My husband, a product of the NRA and a full-blown conservative retiree, is an Arsenio fan. I'm white, past 60 and more than just a fan. I love him dearly. M. J. CROUCH Los Angeles

Jay Leno couldn't stay away from late night for long. On Wednesday night, the former "Tonight Show" host popped up on Arsenio Hall's late-night show for a surprise appearance. Leno, looking a little less coiffed than his days as "Tonight Show" host, snuck up on Hall during his monologue to deliver some exciting news: Hall's show was picked up for a second season. Great news for Hall, but it still visibly bugged him that Leno knew the news before he did. "How are you so juiced into everything?"

Arsenio Hall has gotten an apology from NBC News' Brian Williams, and all it took was a threat from Suge Knight! And some outspoken fans. On Tuesday night's episode of "The Arsenio Hall Show," Hall complained that Williams had left him out of an "NBC Nightly News" graphic on the various late night hosts. The graphic listed nine hosts, leaving out Hall and TBS' Pete Holmes. Hall said he didn't want to be the "angry black man" over the slight, so he brought out a friend who had no trouble filling that role: music mogul and ex-convict Suge Knight.

Los Angeles police said Tuesday that drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in a minor crash that occurred after talk show host Arsenio Hall drove off the side of the road in West Hills. Hall was not injured in the incident about 7:30 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Sherman Way and Medical Center Drive, police said. "He was just off the side road there," said LAPD Sgt. Emalee Baptiste. There was no arrest and no collision report, she added. It was unclear what caused Hall to drive off the road or how much damage was done to the vehicle, Baptiste said.

Civil rights icon Nelson Mandela died on Thursday at age 95, and though news broke mid-afternoon, Arsenio Hall was still able to pay tribute to the leader on Thursday night's show. And his guest, R. Kelly, was also ready with an extremely poignant song. Kelly actually wrote the song "Soldier's Heart" back in 2003 when it was released as a single with proceeds going to honor American veterans in the Chicago area. But on "Arsenio," they revealed that the real subject of the song was actually Mandela and that Kelly had performed the song for him in the South African's living room.

Arsenio Hall, who was on the cover of Time magazine in 1989 ("TV's hip host grabs the post-Carson generation"), returned to the air Monday night for an indefinite run as the host of a revived "The Arsenio Hall Show. " (It should be said right off that the Tribune Co., of which this paper is a property, is a co-producer of the series.) "Leave it to the first black late-night host to take 19 years off work," said Hall, "and come back here and expect my job to still be waiting for me. " If it was not a stunning return to form -- the original show was a cultural landmark over its five-year run, the place where candidate Bill Clinton famously donned a pair of sunglasses and blew a couple of choruses of "Heartbreak Hotel" -- it was, in any case, a return.
