TBS Cans Latino Comic

News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Thurs. Aug. 11, 2011: “Lopez Tonight” will be no more after tonight, August 11th.

The Mexican American comic was given the boot by TBS Wednesday.

“TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of `Lopez Tonight,'” the network said in a statement, adding that it was proud to have worked with the “immensely talented comedian and entertainer.”

Lopez had surrendered his TBS time slot to Conan O’Brien and moved his show to midnight, a move that saw his rating dip 40 percent in its second year, from an average of 910,000 nightly viewers at 11 p.m. ET to 543,000 at midnight. In August, the audience dropped to 391,000.

Lopez was among the rare minority entertainers to get a shot at a late-night show.
