Arsenio Hall

Jeffrey Mayer/

Arsenio Hall's comeback is on.

The former late-night jokemeister has come aboard to emcee Funniest Moments, an hourlong clips-style reality show for MyNetwork TV in the vein of America's Funniest Home Videos.

Funniest Moments will premiere this fall on Wednesdays at 9 p.m.

After the syndicated Arsenio Hall Show went off the air in May 1994 after five seasons, Hall struggled to retain his popularity.

He headlined the short-lived 1997 sitcom Arsenio and, the following year, costarred with Sammo Hung in the CBS series Martial Law. In 2003, he did a short stint hosting a revival of Star Search, popped up in a skit on Chappelle's Show and, more recently, as himself in VH1's Flavor of Love 3.

Besides landing a new TV gig, Hall, 53, continues to do stand-up in his spare time and is also lending his voice to the upcoming Weinstein Company animated comedy Igor, unspooling in September.
