‘LOPEZ TONIGHT’ CANCELLED BY TBS

Posted in George Lopez on August 10, 2011 by fadedblog

This just in: TBS has canceled Lopez Tonight, George Lopez‘s late-night talk show, after two seasons due to low ratings and high costs. The show’s last episode will air Thursday.

A former ABC sitcom star and stand-up comic, George never garnered big ratings, averaging less than a million viewers in his first season at 11 p.m. But when TBS hired Conan O’Brien last fall and pushed him an hour later, to midnight, his audience plummeted 40%, to 546,000 viewers this season. (Ironically, Conan left NBC when that network tried to do the same thing to him, by re-inserting Jay Leno at 11:30).

TBS will air reruns for the next few weeks, and will then substitute reruns of The Office.

Network spokeswoman Karen Cassell says they might add an original program “down the road,”but they have no current plans.

TBS says in a statement it was a “difficult decision.”

GEORGE LOPEZ CALLS IT QUITS WITH HIS WIFE

Posted in Ann Serrano, George Lopez on September 27, 2010 by fadedblog

Sad news to report: George Lopez and his wife Ann Serrano are divorcing after being married for 17 years. They have a 15-year-old daughter, Mayan.

The official statement from George’s rep reads:

“George and Ann Lopez have made the decision to end their 17 year marriage. The decision is amicable and by mutual agreement. They remain dedicated parents, and committed partners in business and their philanthropic organization, The Lopez Foundation.”

The pair was all smiles last week when they attended the Padres Contra El Cancer’s 25th Annual Gala.

As you may recall, Ann donated one of her kidneys to Geroge in 2005. No word on whether she wants it back.

Eva Longoria hosted the Padres El Contra Cancer’s 25th Anniversary Gala at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Thursday night (September 23).

The 35-year-old actress was joined by her Desperate Housewives co-star Felicty Huffman as as she celebrated the foundation’s quarter century of serving the needs of children with cancer and blood diseases across southern California.

Today, Padres has served more than 7500 families and over 35 000 extended family members from all ethnic backgrounds servicing children and young adults with both cancer and blood diseases.

A slew of Hispanic actors from Hollywood stepped out to lend some support, including the likes of Andy Garcia, Demi Lovato, Eduardo Verastegui, Eva LaRue, George Lopez, Mario Lopez and Carlos Ponce.

Eva is no stranger to philanthropy. She was named ‘Philanthropist of the Year’ by Hollywood Reporter in 2009 for giving back to the community.

Padres El Contra Cancer is just one of the many charities she has become involved with in the past few years. Eva also supports the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Stroke Association, Project HOME and St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

She even started her own charity in 2006 called Eva’s Heroes, which helps developmentally disabled children.
