Comedian George Lopez has been tapped as the latest celebrity to host his own late-night talk show.
The 47 year old's star turn in the Sandra Bullock-produced The George Lopez Show secured him a leading name on the small screen, even though the sitcom was cancelled in 2007 after a five-year run.
The show's syndicated success has reportedly spurred talk of Lopez hosting yet another programme produced by Warner Bros.
According to the New York Post, the show is set to premiere next Autumn (09), although it has yet to be picked up by a U.S. network.
Since his show went off the air, Lopez has made guest appearances on U.S. TV series including Reno 911 and The Naked Brothers Band. He has also taken on hosting duties for a network special on cable channel HBO.
