George Lopez

TV Show CANCELLED

8/10/2011 11:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Lopez Show Cancelled
George Lopez' TBS TV show has been cancelled, but there's an even bigger story here -- that Conan O'Brien is failing at the network.

TBS just announced the last show will air tomorrow night.  It's been on the air for 2 seasons.

Now the bigger story.  It looks like Conan did to George what Jay Leno did to Conan.  You'll recall, when Jay Leno came back to NBC, his 10 PM show tanked and killed Conan's ratings. 

Well Lopez had the 11 PM time slot for its first season, but then when Conan came to TBS a year ago he took over the 11 PM slot and Lopez moved to midnight -- meaning George was relying on Conan to deliver a good lead-in.

But when the change was made, George's audience plummeted 40%.

On Monday, Conan pulled in an anemic 0.5 rating in the key demographic (18 - 49) with 715,000 viewers -- and that's a pretty typical day.  George's ratings hovered around 0.2, with 400,000 viewers. 

Short story -- Nobody's watching.

Not surprising, once you get past the Mexican jokes, George is pretty Dull and boring.

I new one person who watched that show, and he said sometimes it was funny but the material had just gotten old. Im sure Lopez can find employment doing voice overs or something.

Racism jokes are only funny for so long then it's just boring. You can only make so many white people jokes and then they are just all the same. Kinda like you can only make so many mexican jokes. It's a tense world right now and racism is no longer funny I guess. IMO .... later dude

Not to worried about the mexican but what about Coco? Is no one watching TBS in general. I would hate it if they ditched Conan as well because his show is actually really funny. Man, Ted Turner's wallet must be bleeding like crazy.

conan failing? hardly. it's tbs - 715k viewers in the 18-49 demo for that network at that time is solid. add in the other demos and conan can probably stay on the air there forever. come on tmz, i thought you people knew how that stuff worked...

Ok, first of all TBS should not have talk shows, it should have hour series, and movies the end. I was pissed when they started this crap because I liked watching the "Funny, Very Funny" comedies at night. I hope they throw that ginger under the bus as well and send him packing to another network.. TBS does not = Talk show.
