Lopez Tonight Gets The Axe

GeorgeLopez081011.jpgGeorge Lopez's talk show Lopez Tonight has been canceled after just two seasons on the air, according to Variety.

TBS has chosen not to film a third season, and the show will end with Thursday night's episode. Raven-Symoné and Auggie Smith are currently scheduled as George's guests for August 11.

Just last year, the network moved the show from 11 p.m. to midnight to make room for Conan O'Brien's new talk show Conan.

Lopez Tonight was conceived as a younger, hip talk show to compete with programs like The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman. Since it began on November 9, 2009, George's show defintiely had its fair share of crazy guest segments, from George shotgunning a beer with Mark-Paul Gosselaar to having a Mexican vs. British food-off with Russell Brand.

Find out what TBS had to say about the decision ... after the jump.

Though the decision seemed abrupt, apparently TBS had been discussing it for a while as ratings declined. In their statement, a network spokesperson said they “valued its partnership with George.”
