"Lopez Tonight" has brought us weed brownie confessions and controversial knocks about Kirstie Alley, but no longer. TBS (which is owned by the same parent company as CNN) has confirmed that the late night show is getting axed from the line-up.
“TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of 'Lopez Tonight,'" the network said in a statement. "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."
In November of 2010, "Lopez Tonight" was pushed back to midnight to accommodate Conan O'Brien's "Conan," a move Lopez was pleased with.
"It's going to be fantastic come November," Lopez told Larry King in April of that year."I am predicting that these shows will change late-night TV," Lopez said. "My intention was to bring the party back to late night."
Looks like the party's over.
You must not make yourself seem too dependent. Even though you feel that you can't live without your ex that, never go telling them that. Remain strong, and let your ex see that you are independent by yourself
This is a topic that is near to my heart... Thank you! Exactly where are your contact details though?
One down (Lopez), one to go (Conan). Both no talent. Lopez is a hater. Conan has no talent. Good riddance to Lopez. Please, TBS, don't make us suffer with Conan as long as you made us suffer with Lopez. AND Lopez, is your friend Conan going to go to bat for you as you did for him? Maybe he can have you come on as a guest and boo hoo about how TBS is unfair. I wonder if Jay Leno has a slot for your to fill, Lopez?
The lopez show should've never been canceled. Its the best late night show in years. Lopez was ten times better than conan. Ratings will drop with just conan on during late night. I hope lopez gets another show or maybe some kinda stand up.
Why is that if you like one you can't like the other?
A couple of weeks ago, George made some really nasty remarks about Jay Leno as well as some other comedians. I'm happy his show is cancelled. When you put bad crap out into the universe, it comes back and smacks you in the face.
CNN has some of the most racist bloggers on the planet. Everytime there is a story about black or hispanic people, the racist comments are everyone. However, I'm sorry George lost his job and Tyler Perry's TV shows are the worst in TV history!!.
get ove TJ. stop whinning.
Good bye ugly man, you are the ugliest man in TV, welcome back to the unemployment line. You were so mean and arrogant, you left your wife once you got a bit famous, disloyal Mexican, ugly and unfunny.
Good riddance! Take note two and a half men (i can only pray)
get 2 free amc movie tickets or many other great items free!!!
Lopez's ability to be funny and entertaining died a long time ago, it makes sense his show should finally follow...
Lopez is not funny at all! But what's with the racist comments? Now, let me get back to work enlarging Hell. It needs more fire and brimstone for some of you. See you soon!!!!!
come on everbody pls someone is loosing their job,please let us pray for him and move on life is too short.
Uhhh. He got a show only because he is friends with sandra bullock. Truth.
no really, Sandra Bullet can not take credit for George Lopez getting a show, after all Sandra Bullet is an idiot, not a good actress. George got a show because they believed he would do a good job but at the end he was boring and not funny at all. Maybe he can date Sandra Bullet now, since she is single with a boy and George left his wife .
This is no surprise to me. He was soo not funny! I admire how far he's gotten in his career, but his stand up and show just stright up lick! There are a lot of unfunny shows on tv right now, espcially Tyler Perry's show's. And no, i am not racist, just speakin the truth. Some white shows suck as well. Rules of Engagement anyone? How I Met Your Mother? Straight face through the whole 20mins. Anyways, why are people so quick to play the race card?
George Lopez show about a family was bad, and he did a real bad job acting in it. why they gave him a talk host show I couldn't understand. But, I guess someone like him to give him the show.
I agree with Jose completely. I really enjoyed his sitcom, and thought he was very clever and funny, along with the rest of the cast. However, I started to see him in a different light with his HBO stand-up. Made me feel uncomfortable, and then his talk show came along, and I realized I wasn't enjoying watching him and his big theatrics. Too bad – he is a funny guy, but not everyone can be a talk show host – you need to leave your ego at the door for that.
George Lopez jumped the shark a few years ago with one of his HBO stand-up specials. Originally, his comedy was based on pointing out the funny little things that Latino families do and he had a great way of extracting bits from it. Then around 2007 he did a show where he came out in front of a large Latino crowd and arrogantly proclaimed that they weren't leaving the country, that there were more of them than white people and so on. He just played to the crowd and got everyone all riled up about how Mexicans were taking over the US. At that point, he lost a large number of fans because his humor went from harmless observations to outright racism. Good riddance.
it was ok when he was making fun of his Mexican people, but when he started to make fun al all Latinos, no, way, he went too far with that. Not all Latinos, have eight children, drive in a small car full of people, not all Latinos, marry young or do not like to work, unlike the Mexican who arrived here breaking the law, mostly of Latinos ( non Mexicans) are educated, good looking, learn English and assimilated the American culture as their own.So, Gorge, next time make fun of somebody else.
Someone explain to me how Mexican Americans are any different from Italian, Irish, Polish, etc.. Americans.. I mean immigrants, like my Father who came here and raised a family, like many many other immigrants.. We don;t refer to him or to me as Italian, when we speak, so why do we say Latino or Hispanic? It's just Americans,,,, We are a melting pot,,,, get over it, already!
He just recycles other peoples jokes with a mexican accent. And @ real talk.- I am not black and I think that all tyler perry does is exploit his own ppl 2 make money. I dont think hes funny nor does anybody I know (black or white) think hes funny. The only ppl that do think he is funny are wiggers and ignorant black buttholes like you
One more out of work Mexican.
Just remember George... don't eat the Government Cheese!
One less racist on TV. We can only hope he leaves the U.S. and never comes back.
That or someone will hold him down and take a dump in his big yapper then shoot him.
George Lopez just furthers the stereotype that George Lopez is funny.
U believe TMZ? Sure, they have the true story. Talk about dirt. He left his wife, thats it. Many ppl have said it, 1 or 2 said diff. Get it straight b4 u quote TMZ dumb@-s
yaaaa another bum off tv keep going i can give you a big list to get sum more bums off tv keep going take cone head off to get that bum off tv to
Tried and tried to like him but to no avail. Not funny at all.
You guys are just straight up racist I wonder if you guys ever put your feet in his shoes or something see how his life was when he was a child you guys probely had it good food on your table every night right.? I'm not saying its good to make fun of your race but he made a living out of it and I'm pretty sure national TV makes you do things you wouldnt be proud of for example Lindsey lohan those twins I don't know their names but yea hope you racist learned something that can stay in your brain for more than 5 minutes(:
I can't believe some of you have the stones to criticize George Lopez's character, and then in the same sentence, spout some racist trash. You're all lower than Satan's wine cellar.
Hey George, there's a bus leaving for Mexico in the morning, please buy a ticket.
good, send him back to mexico
Good, now he can go ahead and leave. he doesn't have to wait for the election.
Finally! Next – Conan O'Brien!
DAMN!! I'd rather watch George than some off center, not funny, red head who pouted, and whined, and bit*hed, oh wait that's team coco–as in cocoa puffs. his commercials aren't funny. he's not funny. sure axe the brown man!!!!!
George should have known. Give up your land (time slot) to the white man and you'll end up getting kicked off the range. Show was annoying anyway.
He, George Lopez was a disgrace to his ex wife and to the rest of the Latino population . Glad he is gone.

Wow a lot of hate for a guy who just tells jokes for a living. I hope you guys throw this "racism" charge at most other comedians as well since theyre no more innocent than Lopez is. Either way, all I'm gonna say is, good luck in your future endeavors Mr Lopez.
Thanks Dios. What a racist. George your a jerk who should head back down south. Good for TBS, they finallly woke up.
Im black and i am happy for tyler perry's success but his tv shows are far from funny. in short they suck. but his movies are good.
It is Conan's fault. George was OK until TBS made him move for Conan. TBS wanted George gone before he started blaming Conan the same way that Conan blamed Jay. You know the deal, George starts attacking Conan, Conan does his "Why me, Lord?" crybaby routine with backup from Andy Richter, and then it gets ugly. Conan sucks as a lead in and his ego refuses to let him admit it. That is probably why his old bandleader, Max Weinberg of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band left and went back to New Jersey. Max knew that there would be trouble. They would both be gone, but Conan's contract is in the way of TBS canceling him. Maybe George should take his show to http://ustream.tv ?
SO HAPPY HE'S GOING AWAY, HE IS A JERK. CANNOT STAND HIM AND YES, I'M SHOUTING IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS
There is a God.
Folks just jealous of Tyler Perry! Ur mad because an African American is successul and Continues to be successful! Now run tell that! Lol
I'm Black and Tyler Perry's shows are not funny at all period. They have some of the most horrible writing in sitcom history. I am happy for Tyler's success and have even seen a couple of his plays live but his shows suck.
Great point. All of you people who think that the Tyler Perry shows aren't funny....News flash not all comedic shows are funny, Tyler Perry has a huge fan base in Atlanta (TBS is also an Atlanta based company) and around the world that keeps his shows on. It's called loyalty, if you are a fan of someone, you will watch their show. The reason Goerge Lopez is been canceled is because his ratings declined after been moved to one hour later to make room for Conan. Most people are not up at midnight to watch, if he was on during the day he would probaly be more successful in the ratings.By the way Madea rocks!
ummm no, his shows just aren't funny....he is doing his thing but the shows are just corny and stereotypical
I'm so happy the show was canceled. He's not funny or very interesting. I think the majority of people in the US would agree,...that re-runs of the smurfs would be more entertaining.
George became very abusive and mean-spirited. He would also disrespect Jay Leno. Now George will find out what show business is about. This is why Leno has a show and Lopez does not. (BUSINESS)
He seems like a nice guy, I saw a new side of him in his interview with Pierce Morgan, he has been through a lot and worked hard to get where he is. But like others have said, he just isn't funny enough for TBS, especially coming on after Conan (one of the funniest men on T.V.). And I found his material to be a bit too stereotypical (but not in a funny way like some comedians can make it out to be). By the way, I saw this coming....
I agree, juju, he's just not funny. But neither are Tyler Perry's shows, and they refuse to cancel those. What gives? Anyway, George Lopez USED to be funny when he just did stand-up and had the ABC show, but when he got the late night gig and got a divorce, he came off very arrogant and it hurt his comedy.
Co-sign! I have no idea why any of Tyler Perry's shows are on tv and how he continues to get new ones. They are the worst bits of "comedic" crap on tv...and I didn't find Lopez to be funny either. He seemed to be trying way too hard.
He's just not funny!
Glad the show will no longer be on TV.
Am glad George Lopez is gone, he insulted Latinos/Hispanic every night, and I hate it. I stopped watching his show a while back. I hate it when he will say: ...we, Latinos, instead of saying we, Mexicans, because he is Mexican American and he would never talk for the rest of the Latinos/Hispanics. Good ridden George Lopez, next time, is loyal to your partner and to your race
Like you've never heard a white comedian refer to all white people as "we" or a black comedian refer to all black people as "we"? That happens ALL the time. Seriously, it's like some of you people have never seen a stand up comedy set before. It's COMEDY. It's not SUPPOSED to be serious. Get it?
well they had to cancel him, isn't he leaving the country!!! It was a racist show and if TBS is proud of it, well nuff said
This show was right up there with "2Girls, 1 Cup" for sheer entertainment value.
Oly chit. now i cant talk about only mexicans and downgrade every other race. man, maybe i deserve it like i deserve for my kidney to quit that my wife gave me before i left her. im a freeeakin idiiiiiiooooot. oly chit man. es no bueno senor lopez. lollollolololololololololololololol
and get a face lift Georgie, to be honest you are ugly, man, you mamma left you because she did not want to deal with an ugly child. Hey, why did you leave your wife after she gave you one of her kidney, that's not cool,man. Hope you burn out in hell.
Is this the guy that dumped his wife after she gave him a kidney?
She left him.....George did not file for the divorce
Anne filed for divorce, not George. http://www.tmz.com/2010/11/23/george-lopez-ann-lopez-divorce-files-prenup-child-custody-spousal-support/
The only reason why he was cancelled! http://youtu.be/YIpQlEkxlys
This is why http://youtu.be/YIpQlEkxlys
In the beginning when George Lopez got his show , I was very happy for him, I used to watch his show every night, but then I started to feel uncomfortable with his stereotype about 'all Latinos", first of all, he is Mexican and as a Mexican he can not talk about all Latinos because Latinos from South America countries as well as Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica etc, are way too sophisticated to be put in the same category as the Mexicans who arrive here via Rio Grande, as they are less educated and can hardly speak Spanish, let alone English. It really upset me to hear him saying "We, Latinos", instead of just saying "we, Mexicans". George Lopez is very arrogant and no funny at all.
SO SOUTH AMERICANS ARE BETTER THAN MEXICANS. MORE SOPHISTICATED HUH? TO GET TO THE U.S. ILLEGALLY ALL CENTRAL N SOUTH AMERICANS JUMP ATOP CARGO CONTAINER TRAINS THAT HEAD NORTH THROUGH MEXICO TO GET TO THE U.S. N THOSE LOWER SUB HUMAN MEXICAN PEOPLE YOU'RE REFERRING TO, HELP OUT THE CENTRAL N SOUTH AMERICANS ON THEIR JOURNEY NORTHWARD. JUST WANTED TO POINT THAT OUT TO OLIVIA
IThe only time I found George Lopez funny was when he was spoofed on South Park.
'm more concerned that TBS is cancelling Saved by the Bell.
I really agree with Olivia, I am an American but I agree with her. George Lopez is unattractive man, he ridiculed Latinos just to make money, but it back fired and his show is not gone. You can not make fun of your own race and not pay the consequences. The best way to let him know was turning off the TV and stop watching his show. Period
