The 54-year-old comic, who regularly appears on 'Lopez Tonight' and 'Tonight Show With Jay Leno,' admits that he does "miss" his old gig, but feels late-night TV is "too crowded" now.
"I miss hosting," he confessed on his Twitter page, @ArsenioOfficial. "I think Hollywood might deem this an oversaturated talk era."
With 10 shows in the late-night space – 'Tonight Show with Jay Leno,' 'Late Show with David Letterman,' 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' 'Lopez Tonight,' 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,' 'Chelsea Lately,' 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,' 'Conan,' 'The Mo'Nique Show' and 'Last Call with Carson Daly' – Hall's "oversaturated" talk may be on point.
"In all honesty, it's too crowded," he continued. "Do we have [enough] guests for all the shows?"
Of the network stations, Fox is the only channel that does not have a current late-night show on its format.
The 'Coming to America' star, who hosted a revival of 'Star Search' in 2003, also acknowledged on Twitter that while he would like to release vintage episodes of 'The Arsenio Hall Show' on DVD, the distributor doesn't feel its the right time.
"My partner, Paramount, says the DVD market is soft and it would not sell," he explained.
