George Lopez's TV Show Is Getting Cancelled

But who will tell racist jokes about Hispanics and make fun of Kirstie Alley? Well, I guess we still have Tosh.0.

TBS has just announced that the last episode of Lopez Tonight will air Thursday night. George Lopez has been hosting the show for two seasons.

The kicker is that Conan O'Brien's show isn't doing well and is reportedly failing at the network, leaving it in danger of cancellation as well. Meanwhile, Jay Leno is doing fine.

Apparently O'Brien did to Lopez what Leno did to him. When Leno returned to NBC, his show bombed, affecting Conan's ratings. Similarly, Lopez had the original 11 PM time slot, and when Conan came to TBS, Lopez moved to midnight. When the change was made, Conan didn't bring in as many ratings as expected, and Lopez's audience fell 40%. Meanwhile, Jay Leno is still doing fine.

Basically, what all this means is, people are watching Jersey Shore. And reruns of Jersey Shore. Maybe Conan should try wearing some fuzzy boots and Lopez should get some gigantic breast implants.

"TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of Lopez Tonight," the network said. "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 hard work on behalf of the network, both on and off the air."

Neither Lopez nor O'Brien has released any formal or non-formal statements regarding the cancellation.

His final guests will be Raven-Symone and comedian Auggie Smith. They're good guests, but I don't foresee this being on par with Oprah's farewell.

So what's Lopez up to after this? For one, he's all set to co-host the ALMA awards with Eva Longoria on September 16. He also recently revealed via Twitter than he has another sitcom in the works:

"@Chicago112 I'm working on a new sit-com !! You'll love that one too !"

Let's hope it's not a rehash of that cheesy family sitcom he had in 2004. I didn't think the song Low Rider could be any more unbearable, but the George Lopez show proved me wrong.

Lopez is also starring in the upcoming flick The Skank Robbers with Halle Berry, Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence. Lawrence and Foxx wrote the screenplay, and Sony Pictures is apparently backing the project. Are you surprised the show got canceled?
