George Lopez' Talk Show Canceled

After two seasons, TBS has pulled the plug on George Lopez' late-night talk show, Lopez Tonight. In a statement the network said: "TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of Lopez Tonight. We are proud to have partnered with George Lopez, who is an immensely talented comedian and entertainer. TBS has valued its partnership with George and appreciates all of his work on behalf of the network, both on and off the air." Sounds like a very kind eff-off. The final show airs tomorrow -- as in Thursday. This news comes almost a year after his wife of 17 years divorced him when she allegedly learned he has cheated on her with prostitutes. His show joins Mo'Nique's show in the graveyard of late-night talkers.

Update, Aug. 11: On Wednesday night's program, George talked about the firing in the opening monologue where he jokes that he "lost some work because [he's] brown."
