TBS will now be the home of a late-night talk show hosted by comedian George Lopez. Starting today, “Lopez Tonight” will air weeknights at 11 p.m.
According to AJC Radio/TV blogger Rodney Ho, Lopez has the key ingredient for success − likability.
Lopez is brash, but not arrogant. He can be edgy but not too edgy. He’s approachable but not dull. And he isn’t afraid to tout the fact he’s the first Hispanic-American with a talk show in primetime. In the end, he hopes to make a splash along the lines of Arsenio Hall two decades ago.
