George Lopez jokes while Conan mourns cancellation

George Lopez faced his audience last night for the first time since TBS announced that Thursday’s show will be his final episode. The audience booed after Lopez shared the sad news, but chuckles won out after Lopez revealed his plans for the future. “Like every TV star before me, I’ma find some crack. I’ma get on the pipe!,” he joked, at Charlie Sheen’s expense. “Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I been trying to lose. But I’m taking it good, I’m straight, believe me. I’m fine. My goddesses… are a wreck. They left me. I’m a losing teeth.” Watch the clip here or below.

Later in the night, Conan O’Brien, whose heralded arrival at TBS shifted Lopez to a later timeslot, honored his gracious neighbor and mourned the loss of the show. “Had it not been for George being so incredibly supportive of me I would not have come to TBS,” O’Brien said after the first commercial break. “It makes me really sad that TBS and George could not work this out … so tonight all of our thoughts are with George and his staff and his crew.”

Lopez is hitting the road, literally. He and Carlos Santana are going on tour together, beginning Sept. 3. In hindsight, though, was this parting of the ways inevitable once Lopez was pushed back to accommodate Conan?

    • Monty

      “Toook hes job!”

        Bwaaaa haaa haaa!!!! That’s great! Lopez is totally unfunny and irritating with his gravel voice.

      • Harry

        Thank god Conan will be gone before the end of year too.

        @Harry- Doubtful. He has multi-year contracts in place. ;)

        I do feel bad for Lopez and his staff so suddenly becoming unemployed, but I never found his show to be funny. Even being a Hispanic man myself, his Mexican jokes are waaaaaaayyyy tired.

        What does you having to look for a date/relationship have to do with this article? Please just stick to the article on the page. I’m sure you can find relationship websites if you continue to look for them!

      • Matt

        I don’t think that add would even work in this country, either, because it’s plainly obvious that that person is not from around here…creepy…

      • Dia

        Its the new spam

      • Lauren

        I wish EW would delete this spam

      • Quin

        They copy and paste a line or two from a normal post and then add their spam page, they do it all the time. I will say that if you are dumb enough to go to this web site, you probably shouldn’t be allowed to have a computer.

    • Cygnus

      Not being funny is what tanked his show. If he’d been funny, then that wouldve brought viewers, and TBS wouldve paid him millions like Leno to be funny…oh wait..

      • Ron

        I think I have to agree regarding his content not being really funny. That’s what viewers are looking for at late-night.

        Whenever I’ve given Lopez a try, I’ve quickly turned the channel. And, I like George Lopez.

      • stephenKC

        And the same thing will happen to Conan, if he doesn’t pull out of his creative funk and start being funny again. Perhaps there is just something about TBS that makes once-funny people un-funny and downright annoying.

    • Bobby

      Lopez is a racist, that’s why he was cancelled.

      • jamie

        you’re so right Bobby, he is a racist!

      • oscar

        J and B : You two are not serious, are you?

    • Oh Well

      LOL! Lopez has made some disgusting comments about “certain” ppl while he has coddled others! He thought “they” loved him by denigrating certain ppl while coddling others! LOL I’m glad this fool got canned it’s exactly what he deserved. Trying to play the race card now is just sad. STHU Lopez !

    • Caitlin

      His show wouldn’t have lasted much longer anyways. Let’s be realistic.

    • Dom

      How did Conan’s response come “Later in the night” when he is on before Lopez?

      • Squishmar

        I thought the exact same thing!

  • Evil Melvin!!

    Yeah, TBS cancels “Lopez Tonight” but keeps airing those incredibly unfunny and boring Tyler Perry shows???

    • whatevs

      They just have no room for other minorities do they?

      • ^

        BET doesn’t seem to have that problem of being accused of racism.

      • Grumpster

        They may…if they were funny. Where’s Chapelle when you need him?

      • @Grumpster

        But that still doesn’t explain why Tyler Perry’s shows are on there.

    • Tyler Perry Stinks

      I completely agree, Tyler Perry is pulling the biggest sucker job on TBS – his shows are painfully unfunny but because they have minorities on, its acceptable

      • Anna

        So agree!

      • ALL CAPS


    • Marcy

      I agree! Tyler Perry’s shows are not funny.


    TBS: Never Funny unless they’re airing Seinfeld reruns.

    • Carrie

      I hate Seinfeld.

      • ^

        Thanks for that. The entire fate of the internet was hinged on your opinion.

      • Mark

        You’re not alone, Carrie. I’ve never understood what people found so funny about that show. I mean, it had its funny moments like The Contest and … uh …

      • Grumpster

        Seinfeld haters must just not have a sense of humor over the Garfield cartoon level.

      • Cmont

        i used to like seinfield… then michael richards went all crazy. and now, it may sound weird, but i can’t look at him the same way. he’s not kramer any more, he’s not funny anymore. sad story, but true.

      • Caitlin

        @Grumpster Garfield was a pretty intelligent show for a kids show. You mean, people that don’t like Seinfeld must not like anything above Hannah Montana.

      • TRIM

        Seinfield sucked!!

      • Alexander McQueen

        Seinfeld sucks big time. His voice is so f*cking annoying.

      • Squishmar

        No… Ray Romano’s voice. Now *that’s* annoying.

      • Kat

        Gotta say..I never much liked Seinfeld either. When it got to the point that Kramer would just bust into Jerry’s apartment and the audience cheered wildly…that was just ridiculous. There were definitely funny moments in each episode, but I almost never enjoyed an entire episode.

  • italics

    As must as was hinged on yours and mine.

    • ALL CAPS

      TRUE DAT

  • Markarrow

    His show was doomed from the beginning. It lacked focus and the host was too patronizing. He lost his personality as network executives with little or no talent or experience tweaked and “Idea-ed” him to death. He is a funny man who allowed himself to be neutered in the pursuit of success. Stop thinking this is about race, it’s about money.

  • Teej

    Now he has more time to do Chihuahua voices.

    • Grumpster

      I don’t want to hear his gravel voice any more…please. He needs to go clean sewers where he’s not out in public any more.

  • luvstotravel

    After what he did to his wife, I won’t watch him. Don’t feel sorry for him.

    • renee

      Amen! The man’s an idiot.

  • Grumpster

    Lopez is totally unfunny. Everything he does is either non-original or just plain vanilla and full of cliches and dumbed down for a dip$hit audience. Good riddance.

  • mae

    geez even his jokes about being cancelled aren’t funny.

  • Chris

    I would like to watch these late night shows and giving my support, but I’m just too busy SLEEPING.

    • Squishmar

      I’m not sleeping but I don’t own a TV. I watch Conan online. Every show.

  • ewsux

    The media players on this site never work for me. What’s the deal?

  • Dumbledore Fluffernutter

    Yes he was patronizing to his guests in that classic Arsenio Hall fashion. Not everybody is cut out for this job. Of course, Ellen is even worse than Lopez and she still has a job, so there you go. He seems like a nice enough chap though. Good luck to him.

    • PN

      I think he was trying to channel Arsenio Hall’ upbeat style a bit too much. And he came off a little stiff at times. But late night TV’s a tough job. And he was against all that crowded competition with Leno, Letterman, Kimmel and others and people preferred to watch those three over him.

  • Op-Ed

    Why is this country filled with so much animosity?

    • oscar

      Just woke up, huh?

  • Justice

    Finally a white guy takes a Mexicans job in this country!

    • Anna

      Haha, Nice!!! :D

    • funny

      Now that’s FUNNY!

    • real justice

      No need for racist comments

      • Squishmar

        Relax. That sounds like a joke George himself would have told… except that it *was* funny.

  • Anna

    ABOUT TIME! That guy is SO not funny and is a total racist! Let somebody with some actual sense of humor, wit and charm do the job…Conan is the KING!

    • TRIM

      Conan Sucks too!

      • TRIM’s butt.

        And I like putting large things in my opening.
