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.

"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.
