The final week of the “Lopez” show, which TBS canceled in 2011, had 424,000 viewers, 269,000 of them in the demo.

Holmes lost much of the total lead-in from “Conan” Monday but held on to most of the viewers in the key demo: Conan O'Brien‘s show had 782,000 viewers, 482,000 of them in the 18-49 group.

Lopez's show was canceled after he voluntarily agreed to move from 11 p.m. to midnight to give O'Brien the better time slot when the former “Tonight Show” host arrived at TBS from NBC.

    Promos made carrot top look like Louis ck. plus he is a reminder tbs dumped Lopez as unfunny but replaced him with a 100% unfunnier super transparent color guy … Yea, no one – Conan, tbs looks good in this try. Hopefully he's off the air in a week- more eps of modern family will wipe the taste of this …

    The Pete Holmes show cost's about 1/3 of Lopez's show.

    Pete Holmes is the shittiest late night comedy show I've ever seen. Someone should blow his fucking head off with a 50 cal. and put him out of his misery. He's a disgrace to comedy, this guy truly sucks dick and swallows. Fuck Pete Holmes
