TBS Cancels Lopez Tonight

The party’s over for George Lopez. TBS has decided to cancel late-night talk show Lopez Tonight.

The network issued a statement about the two-year show coming to an end:

“TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of Lopez Tonight. Thursday will be the final episode of the show. We are proud to have partnered with George Lopez, who is an immensely talented comedian and entertainer. TBS has valued its partnership with George and appreciates all of his work on behalf of the network, both on and off the air.”

TBS broke into late night by launching the Lopez show in 2009, then snatched up Conan O’Brien after his fall out with NBC last year. Lopez said he wanted his show to break from the usual late-night tradition and have more of a block party atmosphere. Conan will continue on the network as part of O’Brien’s multi-year deal with TBS. The move comes on the heels of TBS renewing Franklin & Bash and cancelling Men of a Certain Age.

More to come…

Those people at EW need better proofreaders. TNT airs Franklin & Bash and cancelled Men of a Certain Age.

I kinda liked Lopez Tonight because it was different from the usual setup of weekday late-night talk shows. I also liked that George wasn't afraid to state his feelings towards Jay Leno.
