1994 - Arsenio Hall announces he will end his show in May 1994. The late night talk show ran from 1989-1994. Arsenio has been absent, for the most part, from the public eye but has still contributed to movies and television throughout the years. His talk show was considered ground breaking as it appealed to a younger and different demographic than most talk shows. The audience's signature chant (for applause) was a pop culture hit, even appearing in the movie Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts acting it out at the polo match she was attending in the movie.
