In response to Friday's news that CBS had pulled the plug on "The Arsenio Hall Show" after one season, former "Community" star Yvette Nicole Brown took to Twitter to share her opinion of what the late-night talk show, and others like it, had meant for her career.

In addition to referencing appearing on Hall's show, Brown also mentioned her appearance on George Lopez's TBS talk show, "Lopez Tonight," which was cancelled back in 2011.

Brown later expanded on her initial comment, posting a series of tweets discussing diversity on late-night TV and what losing the voice of Arsenio Hall (and Lopez) means for late-night television.

Brown also made sure to mention that late-night hosts themselves are not necessarily responsible for which guests appear on their shows.

She even told her followers not to blame other late-night hosts for the apparent dearth of racial or ethnic diversity on their shows.

When other Twitter users pointed out that Brown forgot to mention she had appeared on AMC’s “Talking Dead” and Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live” with Andy Cohen, she copped to the omissions. But she noted that "Talking Dead" -- a weekly show that airs directly after each episode of "The Walking Dead" -- didn't quite fit the bill of the "daily late night shows" to which her initial tweets had referred.
