"Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for Rob Dog," Arsenio said, bringing Rob out onto the snazzy stage.

With the show premiering a week from Monday, the staff is in full rehearsal mode and they're already talking about the possibility of a few big gets -- namely Prince.

Arsenio described a telephone conversation he recently had with The Purple One, saying, "[Prince] said, 'Congratulations! Save me a night.'"

As for whether or not Arsenio will bring back the iconic dog pound, the comedian said, "Even if there's not a dog pound, there will be a dog pound of sorts."
