LOPEZ TONIGHT Scores Big First Week, Beating the Competition Among Young-Adult Viewers

"We couldn't be more thrilled with how LOPEZ TONIGHT performed in its first week," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. "The show not only changed the face of late night television but also infused the 11 o'clock hour with an exciting new energy that won viewers in a big way."
