Magic Johnson says the main reason his talk show failed was that black A-list celebrities wouldn't appear on the program.

"We all have to support each other, and we don't do that. Black stars think that if they're not on `Leno' or `Letterman,' then they're not making it. That's the problem," the former basketball star said in an online interview posted last week. "Their managers and agents keep them off of the black shows. There it is, there's your major problem right there."Johnson, whose "The Magic Hour" was canceled earlier this month, urged blacks to support the next attempt at a black entertainment program.
