TBS announces venture into animation, late-night talk with George Lopez

TBS is making its first forays into original animation and late-night television, network executives announced at their annual upfront presentation to advertisers on Wednesday. The animated half hour Neighbors From Hell, executive produced by Jeffrey Katzenberg, will follow a family of four who have been relocated to Houston from the underworld. (The net already runs syndicated episodes of Family Guy, but Hell will mark its first original animated program.) Meanwhile, George Lopez is gearing up to take on a late-night spot in November with Lopez Tonight. “Late-night has become a little stagnant,” Lopez says, “and people have become disenfranchised.” He promises his show will be more “inclusive and diverse,” with a “party energy every night that is not on any other talk show.” For starters, he says, he won’t have a desk.

    Let’s see how this goes. Will Lopez be as critical of Obama as he has been of Bush? Let’s see if he will be diverse and include more Latino guests, since you hardly ever see any on other talk shows.

    Will Lopez be as critical of Obama as he has been of Bush?!?! Obama would have to sink to incredible levels of ineptitude to come even close to matching the worst president in recorded history…
