Eh, I like House, though not enough to regularly watch it.

Why is George Lopez still on Nick at Nite?

Everything with George Lopez is automatically terrible by default. Everything.

You know what I still can't believe? TBS actually giving him a talk show. Thankfully that thing is long gone by now (praise Conan for bumping his cushy timeslot), but still, just the thought of it gives me chills. You couldn't ask for a more uncharismatic, downright ear-searingly annoying host than him.

They also refuse to remove his sitcom from Nick @ Nite.

The thing has been there for like 5 years, it's time to go, already.

Yeah, since they took off Malcolm In The Middle they have yet to take off anything else.

I honestly haven't watched Nick@Nite ever since they took off Fresh Prince.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

I don't think much else has changed since then. I also barely watch it anymore because it's all the same shows, and they refuse to let anything new in to shake it up.

Also they still air George Lopez way too much. The show that thinks it's some kind of groundbreaking comedy but is really not at all. The show thinks too highly of itself and it's a real pain to watch.

Lopez has his heart in the right place when it comes to social issues, but lord knows the man's idea of comedy is the definition of squeaky clean sanitized jokes. Thought that seems to be a problem with a lot of ethnic comedies. They have to conform to stereotypes to find a bigger audience, otherwise they risk alienating the bigger audience. A sad reality because stuff like Everybody Hates Chris shows that there's definitely room for that kind of comedy.

I enjoyed Everybody Hates Chris. Maybe it's because I like Chris Rock or something but there was something about his family life in that show that felt real and believable for me.

It's probably because everyone on EHC is a character and not a stereotype. As I've said before, compared to Malcolm In The Middle in which every character acts the same in every episode using the same formula, there's just no contest between the two.

Ugh, I believe i remember that change. I used to watch that show like crazy until it became scarce.

Why does Nick@Nite even still exist? If I were Nick I'd just put my normal stuff on 24/7 like Disney does.
