Mi gente. Mi raza. I'm so ashamed right now. Not because of the immigration situation. And not because of any crime, piece of legislation or international incident. No, I'm ashamed of my ethnic roots because of a TV show.
Tuesday's LA Times announced the cancellation of ABC's The George Lopez Show. But the article was mostly about how upset George Lopez was. He's claiming this is about race/ethnicity -- but I'll be the first beaner to say that it is't.
George Lopez's show was awful. And I mean sit-up-and-slap-yo-mama bad. It was poorly written and barely acted. The show was unimaginative, lacked any sort of intelligence and lacked a single original thought. We don’t need another crappy show on TV no matter how much it “contributes” to the landscape diversity.
The fact that Lopez played the race-card tells you just how desperate and unimaginative he truly is.
Gracias, adios, George Lopez Show!
