TBS’s Lopez Tonight, starring George Lopez, opened its second year Monday with outstanding deliveries of adults 18-34 (571,000) and adults 18-49 (883,000). Overall, last night’s premiere – which featured Grammy(r)-winning musical artist and actress Janet Jackson, musical guest Rooney and online sensation Antoine Dodson -was watched by 1,352,000 viewers.
“We’re excited that George’s devoted fans followed him to his new time,” said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. “With the combination of Conan O’Brien at 11 p.m. and George Lopez at midnight, we’re confident TBS will be a top late-night destination for young adults.”
Tonight, Lopez will be joined by Oscar(r)-winning actor Jamie Foxx, Glee star Jayma Mays and San Francisco Giants infielder Freddy Sanchez. Upcoming guests include Howie Mandel and Juliette Lewis on Wednesday and Denzel Washington, Hilary Duff and Russell Peters on Thursday.
