Viewers are at odds With the cancellation of the Arsenio Hall Show by CBS

In this segment, the What's The 411 team is discussing the cancellation of The Arsenio Hall Show.

CBS Television Distribution canceled The Arsenio Hall Show after it said that the show would return for a second season, leaving fans of the show to call foul.

CBS said in a statement: "Unfortunately, 'The Arsenio Hall Show' will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue. Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we'd like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We'd also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show."

Although the show started off well when it debuted in September, it could not maintain its early momentum and struggled with guest bookings. The struggle with bookings was perplexing to the "Arsenio Hall" team given that Hall's ratings were often comparable to cable late night shows such as TBS' "Conan."

The news came as a shock because CBS and Tribune had previously committed to the second year of the show. Leno even made a special visit to the show to announce the season two pickup, his first TV appearance after exiting "The Tonight Show" in February.

In a statement, Hall said: "When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge -- I'm gratified for the year we've had and proud of the show we created. I'd like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night."

Two of the What's The 411 hosts agree with CBS Television Distribution, one vehemently opposes the move, while a fourth can see both sides.

Watch the video and tell us below which of the four makes the best point? Who is way off base?
