George Lopez: Lopez Tonight

Although Lopez isn't African-American, his late-night show was hip, funky and diverse—much like the The Arsenio Hall Show.  George Lopez brought cool back to the late-night circuit. His Chicano-centric wallops to celebrity culture were a refreshing slant to the talk show format.  Even with powerhouse guests that included Prince, Denzel Washington and Jennifer Lopez,  the TBS show was canceled after two seasons.
