Does Arsenio Hall have another act up his sleeve? After winning the latest round of Donald Trump's reality show "Celebrity Apprentice" Sunday night, rumors suggest that the 56-year-old comedian might be in talks for another TV talk show. reported Monday that three networks are "very interested" in bringing Hall on as a talk show host. "The Arsenio Hall Show," which ran on Fox from 1989 to 1994, was a huge success but got canned following Hall's decision to devote an entire show to interviewing Nation of Islam leaderLouis Farrakhan.

Hall's rep did not immediately respond to's request for comment. He hasn't been shy about his desire to get back on TV, telling Entertainment Weekly that if his former studio bosses would have him, he'd happily return. "The bottom line is, if Paramount wants me, I will go right back there and pick up where I left off," he said, "and I think that would be a fun story, because they made me the guy that you know."
