George Lopez Talks "Lopez Tonight" Cancellation

Posted Thursday August 11, 2011 1:54 PM GMT

His talk show “Lopez Tonight” got the axe last night, and George Lopez explained what happened to cut his late night run short.

The veteran comedian began, “So in case you didn’t hear the news, TBS has decided not to renew Lopez Tonight. But that’s alright!”

Lopez also joked, “So hey! Did you guys see the news? Unemployment is at an all-time high and for Latinos it just got a little higher.”

“I did get some good news this morning though. Sony announced they were doing a sequel to The Smurfs movie. So today I lost some work because I’m brown, but also I got some work because I’m blue.”

George also mused, “And really almost like every TV star who loses his job. Now what am I going to do, everybody asks. What am I going to do now? Like every TV star before I’m going to find some crack. I’m going to get on the pipe. Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I’ve been trying to lose…” He concluded with, “We’re not saying goodbye. We’re saying cable doesn’t work.”
