Whoa: TBS Cancels Lopez Tonight, Effective Tomorrow
Well, this is kind of crazy. TBS just announced that it’s canceling Lopez Tonight, with tomorrow’s show being its last. Here’s their statement in full:
“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.”
You’ve gotta wonder if Conan is feeling a wee bit responsible for this. Not that Lopez Tonight was really doing all that well before Coco came in and pushed it back an hour, but that certainly didn’t do the show any favors, despite Lopez’s welcoming of Conan to TBS and happily taking the time shift. Look, all I am saying is that I am devastated and am currently planning a pitchfork/torch march on the Conan studio. Who’s with me?!
