TBS's LOPEZ TONIGHT Welcomes 3.2 Million Viewers to Simulcast Premiere of Late Night's Big Party

Last night, TBS's new series LOPEZ TONIGHT got the late-night party started in a big way, scoring 3.2 million viewers and 1.8 million adults 18-49. The series premiere, which was simulcast on TBS and sister networks TNT and truTV, featured host George Lopez chatting with guests Ellen DeGeneres, Eva Longoria-Parker and Kobe Bryant, and musical guest Carlos Santana.

Individually, TBS's premiere was watched by 1.7 million viewers, while TNT's part of the simulcast was watched by 1 million viewers and truTV's by half a million viewers. TBS's telecast also delivered more adults 18-34 than the season-to-date averages for six other major late-night series on broadcast and cable, and more adults 18-49 than five other late-night series.

"Viewers are ready for a change, and George Lopez is an exciting addition to late-night television," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. "We are extremely proud of the success of last night's premiere of LOPEZ TONIGHT and are confident the show will continue to be a big late-night hit."
