George Lopez blasts ABC for cancelling his show
He not only told the newspaper that he should have gotten one more season to tie up some loose threads, but that his show outperformed other shows, like Notes from the Underbelly, that got renewed. "TV just became really, really white again," he told the Times.
What especially galled him was that his show was dumped in favor of Cavemen, which is being marketed as a show about different kinds of people trying to fit in in society, themes which Lopez explored on his show. He speculates he got axed because his show is produced by Warner Brothers and not ABC Television Studios
"So a Chicano can't be on TV, but a caveman can?" Lopez told the paper in a diatribe sprinkled with profanities. "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."
