Eva Longoria talks about the ALMA Awards on 'Access Hollywood Live'Eva Longoria didn't just host Saturday's ALMA Awards, she also produced the show, which recognizes positive portrayals of Latinos in television, film, and music. Monday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), Longoria told Kit Hoover how much fun she had, both as a producer and co-hosting with George Lopez.

"I love behind-the-scenes," she said. "I love producing, I love putting things together. We work with the writers to write the content, we book all of the presenters, we book the music, and so then I was like, we've got to get a comedian on this show. And so we got George, who was a natural fit, and it's so fun to play off of him. We're just really good friends."

George Lopez talks about the ALMA Awards on 'Access Hollywood Live'George Lopez and Eva Longoria will be hosting this year's American Latino Media Arts Awards in September, or the ALMAs, for short. Lopez took a look at some of the nominees on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), mostly the pretty ones, to go along with what Lopez said was "a positive portrayal of Latinos in media."

"There's some hot dudes and hot women in these nominations," he said, setting up a series of photos. "Let's take a look. Not all are hot, but some of them. There's some nasty-looking people." The segment showed images of Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, and Sofia Vergara -- no one nasty looking. He can name those people in person when he hosts the show.

What to Watch Friday, Sept. 12

'Psych'
(10PM, USA) 3rd summer finale
After Gus is taken hostage during a bank robbery, there's good news and bad news. First, BFF Shawn works his way inside the bank (by convincing the robber he has to use the bathroom). Then, he tries to play negotiator with the stressed-out thief.

Actually, considering Shawn's wacky, fake psychic ways, it's a toss-up as to whether his involvement with the hostage sitch is good news or bad news, but the drama turns even more complicated when the robber reveals his sympathetic motivation and Shawn's ex-cop dad Henry sees the crisis unfold on TV.

Only adding fun to the caper: guest stars Gary Cole and Alan "Cameron Frye" Ruck.
