It is being reported now, based on comments made by George Lopez, that his self-titled show has been canceled by ABC.
Exclaiming “TV just became really, really white again,” Lopez spoke of hearing about the cancellation from Steve McPherson, ABC president of prime-time entertainment. Lopez said that McPherson called him over the weekend to explain that the network would lose money if they picked the series up again.
“I get kicked out for a…caveman and shows that I out-performed because I’m not owned by [ABC Television Studios]…So a…Chicano can’t be on TV but a…caveman can?” Lopez said. “And a Chicano with an audience already? You know when you get in this that shows do not last forever, but this was an important show and to go unceremoniously like this hurts. One hundred seventy people lost their jobs.”
