    The George Lopez show is dead in the water. It will air out the rest of the week and then is done. It's ratings suck so bad that TBS pulled the plug.

    Bad news is CONAN is doing just as terrible...with less than 800,000 viewers a night

    So if Conan had just moved back to 12am at NBC George Lopez would still have a job? And Jay Leno is the bad guy? Interesting.

    All of the big late night talk shows are walking dinosaurs. The only reason they are even around is for nostalgias sake. The format is lame, the jokes arent funny, and with things like twitter and tmz out there does anyone really need to hear MORE from celebrities? Networks would be better off airing sitcom reruns in those time slots.

    Carlos Mencia was the rip off artist. Though I guess they're both the same to you.

    I still like Conan, but I rarely care enough to watch it live.

    Conan shouldn't have moved to 12 am. He still wouldn't have gotten the ratings, and it would make him look weak. I blame NBC for orchestrating the retarded 10 pm Leno deal in the first place.

    Not only are they not the same person, he also complained about Mencia ripping off his Beaner jokes and even went as far as punching him.

    Lopez Tonight cancelled

    I'm honestly surprised that it lasted two seasons!
    _________________________________________________________


    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.

    They are on TBS. That's problem number 1.

    I'm curious how many viewers are watching online. I know I've never watched this new incarnation of Conan on tv. I only watch it streaming on the internet.

    Never watched either Conan or Lopez. I really hate fucking late night talk shows. I never watched SNL or Leno or Letterman. Closest I ever got was when I used to watch Howards channel 9 show and E Show. I used to really like Morton Downey Jr.

    I actually watched this the night Aaron Paul was on from Breaking Bad. I'd never seen a more unnaturally forced, phony feeling talkshow host in my life.
