New nightly talk show in the works for Arsenio Hall

Arsenio Hall is returning to TV’s late-night scene, where he flourished with a talk show two decades ago.

CBS Television Distribution said it is developing a syndicated nightly talk show with the 57-year-old actor and comedian. The company said Monday that the show is set to premiere in the fall of 2013.

Mr. Hall is best known for hosting the Emmy Award-winning “Arsenio Hall Show,” which ran from 1989 to 1994. That show’s place in pop-culture history was clinched in 1992 when then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton appeared and played “Heartbreak Hotel” on the saxophone.

Mr. Hall was featured in the 1988 Eddie Murphy comedy “Coming to America” and was a regular on the CBS series “Martial Law” in the late 1990s.

Recently, he won the latest edition of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Boy in Darth Vader ad home after heart surgery

The 7-year-old actor who played a pint-size Darth Vader in a popular car commercial is out of the hospital after open-heart surgery.

A spokesman for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles said Max Page was released Monday, four days after his pulmonary valve was replaced in a two-hour operation. Max headed home with his parents and younger brother.

Max, who plays Reed on the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” was born with a congenital heart defect and has undergone multiple surgeries.

He rallied quickly after last week’s operation, giving a thumbs up the next day and telling his parents, “I am happy,” the day after that, said his mother, Jennifer Page.

The valve used for Max will last about 15 years and won’t require invasive surgery to replace it, according to the hospital. He faces six to eight weeks of recovery.

Maria Arena Bell, executive producer for “The Young and the Restless,” said she and others with the show were “thrilled” Max was doing well and look forward to his return when he recovers.
