TBS Cancels “Lopez Tonight”

After two seasons and a huge ratings dip, TBS has canceled Lopez Tonight, the late night talker hosted by comedian George Lopez.  The show debuted to decent ratings in 2009, but was bumped back from 11pm to midnight last year to accommodate Conan, the Conan O’Brien vehicle that TBS picked up after NBC dumped O’Brien as host of The Tonight Show.  

TBS had hoped for a one-two punch with O’Brien and Lopez bringing in a younger demographic, but ratings on both shows have been quickly eroding.  Lopez Tonight will air it’s final episode tonight.
