He has also appeared in numerous movies and even became the host of his own late night talk show on the TBS network in November 2009. Sadly, due to declining ratings and an abundance of talk show options, the cable network canceled his talk show in August 2011.
In addition to his more than 200 television comedy, talk show, and hosting appearances, Lopez has co-hosting the Emmy Awards and twice served as host of the Latin Grammys.
Maintaining an extremely active schedule as a stand-up comedian, George's shows sell-out coast to coast and continuously break attendance records at major theaters and arenas.

In addition Time magazine named him as one of the 25 Most Influential Hispanics in America, and the Harris Poll named him as one of the Top Ten Favorite Television Personalities.
