TBS Cancels 'Lopez Tonight'

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- TBS has cancelled Lopez Tonight.

Calling the decision not to renew the show for a third season "difficult," the network said in a statement, "We are proud to have partnered with George Lopez, who is an immensely talented comedian and entertainer."

The struggling chat show was moved back an hour to a midnight slot late last year to accommodate Conan, which has also underperformed.

The last installment of Lopez Tonight airs Thursday night.

George Lopez: Mayor of Los Angeles?

Photo Courtesy - Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Comic and late-night chat show host George Lopez said he wants to follow in The Terminator's footsteps -- into politics.

On a segment of Good Day L.A. Tuesday, the comic said he has an eight-year plan to run for mayor of Los Angeles, declaring, "If Arnold Schwarzenegger can be governor, why can't George Lopez be the mayor of Los Angeles?"

Lopez said his run would begin when his contract with TBS is up -- and joked it's also when the Latino population of L.A. would be nearly 100 percent.  He also added, "I don't believe I'll pass the background check now."

Despite Lopez' deadpan delivery, his agent says he was joking.
