Talk about an awkward encounter. Comedian George Lopez says he was mistaken for a housekeeper at the Dream hotel in downtown New York City on Wednesday. Lopez had arranged to have his suit and shoes delivered to his room prior to GQ's Gentleman's Ball that night. What was supposed to be a quick exchange turned into an uncomfortable but comical situation. "I got a Dolce & Gabbana suit and $3,000 shoes, but the struggle will still continue," he told the crowd at the event that night. "Today at the Dream hotel in room 440, [I] had a Prada suit and sport coat, $10,000, delivered to »

If that phrase means anything to you, then you're likely a huge fan of Storage Hunters, Dave's biggest hit from across the Atlantic. It's now coming back for a UK spinoff, with auctioneer and comedian Sean Kelly keeping things under control once again.
Ahead of the brand new series, Digital Spy sat down with Kelly about how the show is different from its predecessor. Here's what we found out:
"A comedian friend of mine, George Lopez, he and I were doing a charity fundraiser together and he's like, 'Dude you should get on Twitter'. He had to explain to me how it works and so I sent out like two tweets and all of a sudden I started getting thousands of followers in the UK and I'm like, 'What is this? »

FX Networks and Productions CEO John Landgraf told an investor conference Wednesday that "we have really now achieved a scale that allows us to truly compete with Netflix and HBO," predicting further ratings and financial upside for his group that is part of Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox. Speaking at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills, he also said the company will likely stop acquiring shows under so-called 10/90 deals, such as Anger Management with Charlie Sheen, George Lopez's Saint George and Partners with Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence.

The exclusive deal with Derbez underscores the high stakes of reaching the coveted Hispanic moviegoing audience — a fast-growing demographic at the box office.
Derbez starred in and directed Pantelion’s hit “Instructions Not Included,” the highest-grossing Spanish-language film ever released in the U.S. at $44 million. The film grossed another $55 million outside the U.S.
“Pantelion and Televisa can reach my core fan base better than anyone and, with the distribution expertise and brand recognition of Lionsgate, I know we can build on the crossover audience that we began to reach with ‘Instructions,'” Derbez said.
Derbez also starred in 2007’s “Under the Same Moon,” which took in about half of its $23 million worldwide in the U.S.

Eugenio Derbez, writer, director and star of hit Spanish-language comedy Instructions Not Included, has signed an exclusive first-look deal with Lionsgate/Grupo Televisa’s Pantelion Films, staying in business with the label that released his record-setting Spanish-language pic last year.

The half-hour, starring the comedy vets as mismatched Chicago lawyers, is produced under Debmar-Mercury and Lionsgate Television’s 10/90 model that bore comedies like “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “Anger Management.” If the show meets certain ratings benchmarks after its initial 10 episodes, as those did, it will get the go-ahead for 90 more.
FX has stated that its analysis of ratings data doesn’t begin until L+3s come in (DVR playback within three days of a telecast), but according to same-night estimates by Nielsen, “Partners” averaged a 0.35 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.12 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock half-hour. It then dipped at 10:30 to a 0.30 and 1.01 million. This puts it a bit behind the March premiere of George Lopez 10/90 series “Saint George, »

FX made a deal with the studio of Saint George that, if the first season drew high enough ratings, the sitcom would be renewed for a second season of 90 episodes (similar to the Anger Management deal). Will it be renewed or be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
On Saint George, a recently divorced successful entrepreneur (George Lopez) struggles to balance the parenting demands of his All-American Anglo ex-wife and the cultural expectations of his overbearing Mexican-American mother. The cast includes Lopez, Jenn Lyon, Olga Merediz, Kaden Gibson, David Zayas, Danny Trejo, Diana-Maria Riva, Joey Pollari, and Tobit Raphael.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
7/12 update: FX has cancelled this »

Who knew that Mr. Mariah Carey - aka Nick Cannon - had directed another feature film? It's a high school comedy titled "School Dance," which judging from the trailer, is exactly the sort of film you would expect Cannon to direct. I mean, seriously, think about it. If Cannon was directing "Selma" then that would be an unexpected surprise, and we would be forced to look at him in a different light altogether (“Wow! Cannon is directing 'Selma'? I didn’t know the brother was so deep”). But "School Dance"? Yeah that sounds about right.The cast is also what you would expect: Mike Epps, Katt Williams, Luenell, Amber Rose, George Lopez, with Bobb’e J. Thompson in the lead, »
