George Lopez played the good soldier. Now he's paying the price. TBS abruptly canceled the veteran comic's Lopez Tonight Wednesday, with his final fresh hour airing Thursday. In a statement, the network said it had "reached the difficult decision not to order a third season" of the show, which premiered on Nov. 9, 2009 at 11 p.m. ET before the arrival of Conan O'Brien's Conan pushed Lopez back to midnight ET last November....

I was a no-show at Saturday night's Television Critics Association Awards in Los Angeles, but I have the best of all possible excuses: I was further down the California coast, hosting the rehearsal dinner for my son Mark's Sunday wedding to Jessica Kozzi. But the TCA sent out news of the winners, which I'm glad to relay. Especially because it gets me out to the wedding festivities more quickly...

It's been a pretty good press tour when you can say you were in on sessions with Harry Belafonte, Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Lewis, Gloria Steinem, Davy Jones, Rosie O'Donnell, Hugh Laurie, Ken Burns...and, yes, the Playboy Mansion.
