Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: “We Put Our Faith In Blast Hardcheese!” Edition


This week I was shocked to find that the endless promos heralding the return of ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ weren’t just some elaborate joke on the viewers (insert remark about how the show itself is the joke blah blah blah fishcakes.)  For my part, if they were gonna reanimate the pop-culture corpses of the Clinton Administration, I’d have preferred that they bring back Mystery Science Theatre 3000, or perhaps throw Jim Carrey’s floundering career a bone with a retake on ‘In Living Color.’  Even though, when it comes to talk shows, I’m not particularly interested in watching even when I love the host and/or hostess-type person,  I am genuinely confused about the expectation that Arsenio is a big-name draw in the year 2013.  Is he still a big deal?  Have we officially reached the point where everybody gets their own show?  Is it just me?  And what’s the deal with airline food?  Whether I’m crazy or not, this whole line of thought does beg a query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really misses ‘The Higgins Boys & Gruber,’ just like the other eleven people who watched, asking: What other 90s-era programming would you like to see revived in the present day?
