Arsenio Hall may want to have PRINCE on his late night talk show a lot more often. The reclusive music icon more than doubled Arsenio's audience in the takeover special that aired last night.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Arsenio's ratings jumped 50 percent in the 18-49 demographic with Prince's appearance, giving him his youngest viewing audience to date.
In total, ratings were up 56% for Arsenio in all households and higher than his February sweeps numbers. Arsenio was also trending on Twitter for a majority of the night due to the purple one's appearance.
It tied him with Jimmy Kimmel and for the first time since his opening week, gave him higher ratings than Conan O'Brien and Chelsea Handler. Arsenio did trail Jimmy Fallon whom it is being reported has started a booking war that people have to appear on The Tonight Show first before appearing anywhere else. We have a feeling Fallon will make an exception for Prince.-DocFB
Diagnosis: PRINCE is high on everyone's booking list including Ellen, who on Monday had her highest rated show ever and this season has been her best ever ratings wise.
