George Lopez has landed his own talk show! Back in October, Hollyscoop reported that he was in talks to get his own late night show, and it has since been confirmed!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, George has signed with TBS to star in his own late-night show. THR says the show will have celebrity guests, live music, and comedy acts in “an outdoor street party atmosphere.” Sounds fun! They should kick it up a notch and throw a keg on set!
TBS is stoked to bring Lopez into the late-night game. Michael Wright, VP of programming for TBS, says, "George Lopez is a special talent, with an everyman appeal that makes him uniquely positioned to be the next great late-night host. George and TBS are going to change the late-night television landscape and bring a brand-new energy to the talk-show genre by giving it a street-party atmosphere. We're excited to see this show come to life."
George is pretty sure of himself when it comes to his new gig too. He says, "If change can come to the White House, then change can come to late-night. Yes I can!"
Well he definitely has the right attitude about the whole thing! We have a good feeling about this new show. George is just so likeable, and he’ll probably really be able to shine in the late-night arena.
