After just two seasons, George Lopez’s talk show Lopez Tonight has been pulled off the air. Lopez announced the cancellation on Wednesday night’s episode.
“In case you haven’t heard the news, TBS has decided not to renew Lopez Tonight and tomorrow will be our last night,” he said.
Lopez used the announcement to joke about the unemployment rate and how Charlie Sheen handled his firing from Two and a Half Men. “The unemployment rate is high, and for Latinos, it just got a little higher!” he said.
“Like every TV star before me, I’m gonna find some crack. I’m gonna get on the pipe! Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I wanted to lose. But I’m taking it good, I’m straight, believe me. I’m fine — my goddesses are a wreck … they left me!” Lopez joked.
On a more series note, Lopez said he is not giving up. “We’re not saying goodbye, we’re saying, ‘Cable doesn’t work,’” he added.
TBS issued a statement Wednesday saying they are “proud of have partnered with George Lopez.” “TBS has valued its’ partnership with George and appreciates all of his work on behalf of the network, both on and off the air,” the statement said.
