Lights out for another Latino Talk Show Host?
Tonight is the last night for George Lopez’s ‘Lopez Tonight’ and it may be lights out for another Latino talk show host: Father Albert. The Father Albert show, which was being tested for five weeks in six Fox markets, didn’t even last the full five weeks before it was pulled in half the test markets.
Those markets are New York, Minneapolis and Phoenix. The show averaged a 0.7/2 in the metered markets for its first four weeks. That’s down 30% from its 1.0/3 lead-in average, although even with its year-ago time periods, according to a Broadcasting and Cable article.
This was Father Albert’s first English-language show though he’s no stranger to television and radio, having had previous shows, but in Spanish. The show garnered 538 Twitter followers and 3,866 likes on Facebook during it’s short run.
Would Father Albert do better on a Spanish-language channel or a different network other than Fox? Is his Priest clothing a turn-off to audiences? Or is his show simply not interesting? Do you think the show will be back? Did you watch any of the episodes?
Let us know what you’re thinking.
