Eva Longoria and George Lopez on the Final 'Lopez Tonight' on 'Access Hollywood Live'Thursday night marked the end of the line for George Lopez on 'Lopez Tonight,' and Friday, 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) devoted a considerable amount of time to clips from the show. The main guest on the final 'Lopez Tonight' was Eva Longoria, and she and Lopez had a loose and open conversation about the end of the show. After the clips, Brian Williams gave his opinion on who might replace Lopez in the late night slot.

Lopez asked Longoria about her "wardrobe malfunction" on Letterman in April, when a button popped loose on an already revealing top. Nothing improper actually got shown, but Longoria said it was the most downloaded video of the month. "Maybe if I did that here, we would still be on," said Longoria. Lopez suggested in might not be too late. Longoria also noted that when the show started, she and Lopez were both employed and married, and now they are both divorced and jobless.

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?"

Conan O'Brien, George LopezWhen TBS announced that Conan O'Brien would be taking over George Lopez's 11PM time slot for his new late night show last year, the first person to congratulate Coco on his new job was Lopez himself, whose 'Lopez Tonight' was pushed an hour later to midnight.

TBS announced yesterday that it had decided to cancel 'Lopez Tonight' instead of ordering a third season of the talk show, and Thursday's show will be the series finale. "TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of 'Lopez Tonight.' Thursday will be the final episode of the show," the network said in a statement.

Ever the comedian, Lopez told viewers on his show Wednesday night that he'll be okay ... sort of. "Like every TV star before me, I'mma find some crack. I'mma get on the pipe! Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I wanted to lose," he joked. "But I'm taking it good, I'm straight, believe me. I'm fine. My goddesses are a wreck."

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.

Eva Longoria, 'Lopez Tonight'Victoria Beckham may look like she has it all, but there was one thing she knew nothing about. Of course, it was more of a cultural thing, but Eva Longoria still rectified it, as she explained on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS).

She threw Beckam a baby shower. "They don't do showers in England." To make matters worse, "she was really nervous because she's not a game person."

Longoria's hairdresser egged Beckham on, advising her to wear a waterproof dress and bring an umbrella. But Beckham clearly had fun, as evidenced by a photo she Tweeted of several party-goers dressed in toilet paper dresses.

Ralph Macchio, 'Lopez Tonight'Way back on March 22, during the first week of the current season of 'Dancing with the Stars,' George Lopez took to the stage on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS) and implied that Ralph Macchio was wearing a toupée.

Macchio went back on the show to defend himself, because apparently the story had gotten a little out of control.

"It was like 'The National Enquirer' calling, 'People' Magazine. Is he wearing a toup'? Is he wearing a toup?'" Macchio lamented. "No, it's real."

He even allowed Lopez to give it a good tug and prove that it was real hair.

Nick Cannon Jokes About Mariah Carey and Their Twins in the Delivery Room (VIDEO)

Nick Cannon, 'Lopez Tonight'If George Lopez was hoping to talk to Nick Cannon, the excited new father of twins on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), he may have been disappointed. Instead, he got Nick Cannon the comedian, talking about his experiences in that delivery room with wife Mariah Carey.

Of course, we suspect that's exactly what they were looking for, and it was funny. But we still don't know what happened.

We suspect this part didn't: "I had a camera in one hand, I had the iPod in the other, the video camera, the doctor was holding the light for me," Cannon said. "I was like, 'Get that angle.'"

George Lopez Dethrones Chris Hemsworth After Epic Whac-a-Mole Battle (VIDEO)

Chris Hemsworth, 'Lopez Tonight'Somebody tell Kenneth Branagh he needs to go back for re-shoots on 'Thor.' With Chris Hemsworth as his guest, George Lopez decided to challenge his hammer prowess on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS).

"I want to challenge Thor, the God of Thunder to see if he can beat me at a game of Whac-a-Mole," Lopez said.

Complete with viking hats for "safety," as Hemsworth indicated, it was a brutal challenge. Sure, Hemsworth and Lopez spent as much time hitting one another with their mallets as they did the moles in the game, but in the end there could be only one.

Heidi Montag Enjoying 'Retirement,' Would Come Back for 'DWTS' (VIDEO)

Heidi Montag, 'Lopez Tonight'Remember Heidi Montag? She was back on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM on TBS) talking about how much she was enjoying being out of the spotlight. As for her husband Spencer Pratt, Montag indicated "I don't know if he'll ever come back."

Considering how negatively he was received toward the end of the media bonanza, we can't really blame him. As for Montag, she seems interested in staying relatively low-key, except for the odd talk show appearance apparently.

When George Lopez asked if she wanted to get into acting, she said, "I think I want to be a puppy-sitter."

Paul Walker, 'Lopez Tonight'Paul Walker may have busted open a trade secret he should have left buried about the set of 'Fast Five' during his appearance on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). He certainly seemed pretty worried about the bizarre details he laid out there for us all to imagine.

According to Walker, there were scenes in the film where the actors might have wanted to look sweaty, but it wasn't hot enough to have it occur naturally.

"You gotta use some body lube," he said. "You got Dwayne [Johnson] and Vin [Diesel] doing a lot of lubing each other up."

Maria Menounos Relives Her Paparazzi 'Wardrobe Malfunction' on 'Lopez' (VIDEO)

Marian Menounos, 'Lopez Tonight'Most Americans don't appreciate how difficult it can be to be in the media spotlight all the time. Especially if you're an attractive young woman and you want to go to the beach. Because pretty girls and the beach equals paparazzi looking for that money shot. Unfortunately, we mean exactly what that sounds like.

Maria Menounos shared the story of her "wardrobe malfunction" that got the paparazzi all kinds of shots on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS).

You know you're in a crazy reality when you get wind that there are photos of you out there and you're actually praying, "Please let it be nipple. Please let it be nipple."

'Lopez' Reveals Old Footage of Dwayne 'Rocky' Johnson Wrestling (VIDEO)

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, 'Lopez Tonight'You can't escape your past. Especially if that past was lived on television. Luckily, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was an incredibly good sport about his earlier ring incarnation as "Rocky". George Lopez had some footage of those early days on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS).

"That's El DeBarge!" Lopez said after seeing the footage.

Johnson was so cool, though, that even embarrassing clip of him with a bad '90s hairstyle didn't phase him. (It helped that he was completely ripped in the footage.) We think "Stone Cold" Steve Austin might have been a lot more embarrassed of his "Stunning" days of wrestling than Johnson was of his "Rocky" era.

Meat Loaf Reveals a New Song with His 'Celebrity Apprentice' Team (VIDEO)

Meat Loaf, 'Celebrity Apprentice'You never know where a musical collaboration might be born. Most people probably wouldn't guess that it would find its genesis on a show with Donald Trump. But that's exactly what's happened on this season's 'Celebrity Apprentice.' On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), Meat Loaf offered a sneak preview of the track.

It's a collaboration between him, his two fellow finalists on the men's side (Lil Jon and John Rich), and the already eliminated Mark McGrath. This is what happens when you force a bunch of musicians to hang out together.

What's fun about it is the diverse musical backgrounds and fields they're bringing into this joint number, called 'Standing in the Storm.' "It's kind of a rock/country/hip-hop thing," Meat Loaf said. "It's very interesting."

George Lopez and Russell Brand Wear Darth Vader Helmets for 'Lopez Tonight' Interview (VIDEO)

Russell Brand in Darth Vader helmet, 'Lopez Tonight'Everybody's familiar with the Darth Vader voice-changing helmets. Even adults found themselves drawn to them, having fun saying cool lines from the movie. On 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), George Lopez took the notion of playing with them a step further when he decided to interview Russell Brand while wearing one.

To complete the bizarre visual, Brand was given a mask as well. While the interview set off along fairly normal topics, talking about the possibility of children in Brand's future, it was only moments before Brand realized something.

"Hey, I can say whatever I like while I'm wearing this because people can't see my lips move," he realized suddenly. From there it was a string of profanities that we're pretty certain was even worse than the closed-captioning that started scrolling at the bottom of the screen.
