The post 9 Talk Shows That Crashed And Burned Faster Than ‘Lopez Tonight’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

After nearly two years on the air, TBS has canceled George Lopez’s talk show, Lopez Tonight, due to low ratings. After moving the show back by an hour to make way for Conan O’Brein, Lopez’s audience fell off by nearly 40%, and never recovered from the drop. But in all fairness to Conan, the later time slot only exacerbated an existing problem: the fact that the show was about as funny as stapling your scrotum to your thigh. But me bashing George Lopez for not being funny is like Michael Jackson bashing Amy Winehouse for reckless drug use. So instead of poking fun at a man who has achieved more success than most of us could even fathom, I’ll just point out nine other talk-show hosts who crashed and burned even harder than he did. Enjoy.

Also, please note that you will be watching a lot of clips from the 80′s and early 90′s, so prepare yourself for an outrageous amount of saxophone.

The Pat Sajak Show - Jan., 1989 to Apr., 1990

Those of you who aren’t old enough to remember the 80′s are blessed. It was an awful time, as evidenced by this clip. Yes, that’s Pat Sajak, the guy who hosts Wheel of Fortune. There’s no reason to particularly dislike the man, but seeing that sweater in the intro is enough to make people change the channel. However, he was ahead of his time on the whole Betty White craze.

New Zealand Apologizes To Anna Faris, Will Faris Apologize For ‘Yogi Bear?’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/new-zealand-apologizes-to-anna-faris-will-faris-apologize-for-super-ex-girlfriend/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/new-zealand-apologizes-to-anna-faris-will-faris-apologize-for-super-ex-girlfriend/#comments Wed, 26 Jan 2011 02:26:31 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=22359 Faris got harassed on the New Zealand set of 'Yogi Bear,' and the country said some things it later regretted.

The country of New Zealand realized they can’t possibly stand up to the powerhouse that is the almighty Anna Faris, and backed down from their recent war-of-words with the sexy, fearsome star of The House Bunny.

According to her interview with Conan‘s super lame TBS talk show cousin George Lopez, Faris was harassed by rowdy New Zealander dudes watching her film recent cinema masterpiece Yogi Bear. From there, Faris concluded that all New Zealand guys are (CG animated) pigs, which Ian Long, spokesman for the New Zealand tourism board, took offense to.

Noting that Faris received an award for being a smoking hot pot smoker later on Lopez, Long said that since “she accepts an award for being a pothead stoner of the year… I don’t think she has any credibility.” His bosses weren’t pleased with that, and New Zealand released this official retraction:

“The inference that Tourism NZ did not take Ms. Faris’ comments seriously is very much regretted and was certainly not intended. On a U.S. talk show Ms. Faris spoke about disrespectful behavior she experienced during her stay in New Zealand and as a consequence her impression of New Zealand men is, to say the least, poor.”

When Bart Simpson pissed off Australia, they gave him a booting. I don’t think Faris was in the wrong, but I’d still like her to receive a booting. It beats an entire country pussying out on what could have been an awesome publicity war. Then again, when I think of “great wars,” none of them involve New Zealand. (Cinema Blend)

Conan O’Brien Making TBS His New Home http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/conan-obrien-making-tbs-his-new-home/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/conan-obrien-making-tbs-his-new-home/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I'm taking your time slot, and that's the end of it. Conan O'Brien chooses TBS.  In a surprise move, O'Brien announced on his Twitter this morning that the cable channel will be his new home:"The good news: I'll be doing a show on TBS starting in November. The bad news: I'll be playing Rudy on the all new Cosby Show."Coco's show will air at 11PM, Monday-Thursday, the slot now occupied by "Lopez Tonight." George Lopez is acting all "mi casa, su casa" about getting the bump to midnight, having called O'Brien personally and stating, "I can think of nothing better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in."It was thought that Conan might land at FOX this Fall, but the affiliates' shared fear of replacing profitable "Seinfeld" reruns with a floppy, red-haired gamble put a wrench in the works. Conan couldn't seem happier about the move though, stating, ""In three months I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I'm headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly."Next up, maybe blogging. Welcome to hell, Coco. (Variety)
