"All the guys have been nice to me," said Arsenio, who had nothing but kind words for his contemporaries. "I got two writers back there that I know because [Jay] Leno called me and said, 'I know two great guys.'"
"When I was at Apprentice, Jimmy Kimmel sent me money for the Magic Johnson Foundation and helped me to win that thing," Arsenio added.
Before his big premiere next week, Arsenio will appear on Late Show with David Letterman tomorrow night at 11:35/10:35c on CBS.
