Billy Bush and Kit Hoover Analyze the 'Lopez Tonight' Cancelation (VIDEO)

George Lopez and 'Lopez Tonight' not renewed on 'Access Hollywood Live'If you're looking for well-researched, cogent analysis and conclusions concerning TBS's decision not to renew 'Lopez Tonight' for a third season, watching Billy Bush and Kit Hoover spitball theories on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) might not be what you're looking for. They showed a clip of George Lopez announcing the decision Wednesday night, and then hypothesized reasons it might have happened.

"So hey, did you guys see the news?" Lopez said on his show. "Unemployment is at an all-time high and for Latinos, it just got a little higher." Bush thought it might just be that TBS is a difficult station to find. He shouted out to the live audience to see who know what station it was. "I think it's a legitimate point," he said. "I think it's hard to find. I don't know, it's like two-fif- I really don't know. 252 maybe? Something like that?"

That doesn't explain why Lopez started with high ratings and then dropped considerably. The time slot change to accommodate Conan O'Brien might explain that. O'Brien also weighed in on his show, saying that he owed Lopez a lot and he was sad to see that Lopez and TBS couldn't work it out. Bush wondered if O'Brien's soft ratings lead-in hurt Lopez. "Because George's ratings were higher when he was earlier, but everyone's ratings are higher whenthey're earlier," he said. Thursday's show will be the final 'Lopez Tonight.'
