George Lopez is struggling with the news that Lopez Tonight was canceled and made some very pointed -- and racially charged -- jokes about it to his audience last night.
"In case you haven't heard the news, TBS has decided not to renew Lopez Tonight and tomorrow will be our last night," Lopez said to a jeering audience. "The unemployment rate is high, and for Latinos, it just got a little higher!"
"I did get some good news this morning. Sony announced they're doing a sequel to the Smurfs movie," he said. "So today, I lost some work because I'm brown, but also I got some work because I'm blue."
"Like every TV star before me, I'm gonna find some crack," Lopez joked. "I'm gonna get on the pipe! Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I wanted to lose. But I'm taking it good, I'm straight, believe me. I'm fine -- my goddesses are a wreck ... they left me!"
"It's been great to work every night," Lopez said. "We're not saying goodbye, we're saying, 'Cable doesn't work.'"
The last show of Lopez Tonight airs Thursday.
