George Lopez Should Take a TBS Lesson from Tyler Perry

George Lopez has been canceled by TBS, which is a surprise to everyone.  It is also being reported that Conan O’Brien is also falling on his face.   It also seems that one has a lot to do with the other.

When Conan was added into the network at the 11 pm slot, the brown-skinned guy (Lopez) was moved to midnight.  As a result, they both struggled, because Conan’s show was so bad that it didn’t give Lopez a good lead-in. 

Conan only pulled in 715,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic, which is not a match for the massive salary they were paying him (reportedly in excess of $10 million per year, and this was after he was paid another $40 million to leave NBC).  Lopez could only get 400,000 viewers himself, which was even worse.  We doubt that Lopez had a deal like Conan’s.

Maybe they should have gotten long-term deals and owned their own stuff like Tyler Perry.  Then, they’d be getting paid no matter what.
