We’re finally getting our first look at Arsenio Hall’s highly anticipated return to late night television, and it looks like he’s reviving one of his signature bits from his early 90s heyday.
In a brief, horror film styled teaser trailer, a voiceover intones as a damsel in distress runs through city streets: “Some say he never existed at all. But others swear that when night grips the city, if you close your eyes and listen — really listen — you can still hear the pulse-pounding, hair-raising, spine-chilling sounds of… the Wolfman.”
The unidentified girl enters what appears to be an abandoned warehouse, where is confronted by an ageless Hall and a bevy of cheering fans.
The comedian corrects the narrator, calling himself the “Woofman” in reference to the classic fist pumping and ‘woof’ sound his audience famously indulges in.
Hall made a big splash as the winner of Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” this past summer, shortly after his stint on the NBC reality series he secured a second shot at a syndicated late night talk show.
From 1989 to 1994, Hall was a major player on the late night comedy scene. His new show is expected to debut in the fall of 2013.
