What Fans of Abruptly Canceled Shows Talk About

I “Like” a lot of shows on Facebook. Why? I could say it’s because I like having my Feed updated with news reports and interesting links about who’s going to be on this week’s Simpsons episode or about a wood carving of Ron Swanson that I can’t believe hasn’t actually made its way onto Parks and Recreation's official Page yet. But to be honest, the likelier reason is because I’m a narcissist who feels the need to broadcast his Likes onto society — “Hey, look at me world, I love Party Down. I’m cool!”

In other words, I’m a Facebook user. But a “Like” shouldn’t be taken too lightly; [...]

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 [...]

George Lopez to Run For Mayor in LA

First, there was Ronald Reagan. Then, there was Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now, the next Hollywood superstar to turn to politics in the state of California is George Lopez. Yep.

George Lopez Says Goodnight

Last night was Lopez Tonight's final episode, and while you know George Lopez is a millionaire and probably has offers rolling it from across the universe, consider my tears jerked. "When they asked me to do a talk show, I wanted it to be inclusive, and I wanted it to be fun," Lopez said in his farewell speech. "So right now I'd like to ask the camera people to take one shot of this audience and show you how inclusive this show has always been." The audience, all in Lopez shirts, lost their shit. In addition to giving a shout-out to Sandra Bullock, Lopez was joined for [...]

Conan and Lopez Tonight: Now with More Lopez and Conan

Pulling what I like to calling "the ol' switcheroodly doo", this Thursday promises a never-before-seen Conan Lopez crossover: Conan guesting on Lopez Tonight, George Lopez stopping by Conan. So many hearty handshakes; so many one-armed hugs. And the smiling, oh the smiling!

George Lopez Jokes About Getting Canceled

Say what you want about George Lopez, the man is going out the way we all should: riffing on our greatest disappointment. "In case you did not see the news on unemployment, it's at an all-time high and for Latinos, it just got a little higher," Lopez  joked last night after word came that TBS canceled Lopez Tonight after two seasons. "I'm taking it good, but my goddesses are a wreck… they left me, and I'm losing teeth." Of course, the abrupt cancellation has caused speculation that low ratings pulled in by lead-in Conan caused Lopez to bottom out, as both shows have experienced a decline in [...]

Lopez Tonight Might Not Get A Third Season

Soak up every second of George Lopez in drag that you still can, because Lopez Tonight might not be getting a third season. TBS was hoping the midnight show would get a boost from having Conan as a lead-in, but has been slipping in the ratings all year. TBS has until August to give Lopez the go ahead, which gives George barely enough time to burn the rest of Schwarzenegger's mistresses.
