After the cancellation of George Lopez's talk show "Lopez Tonight” late last year, the Mexican-American comedian has been on a TV hiatus.
Until tonight when Lopez makes a comeback as host and matchmaker on Fox's new dating reality series "Take Me Out.” The premiere of "Lopez Tonight" back in November 2009 marked TBS' first attempt to break into the late night scene.
"Take Me Out" is similar to the British dating game show of the same name, based on the original Australian dating show "Taken Out." "So the game comes to America, and it takes a completely different format and style; same game but the answers are a little more honest because we're a different culture in the United States," said Lopez according to Tulsa World. “I would say you [have to] have a sense of humor, not take yourself too seriously, be honest, pick up after yourself, love to stay at home and not do much,” Lopez said according to the .
“I really don’t go out a lot.” “I don’t like people that are messy, for one, or that are insecure,” Lopez adds.
Lopez brings a great deal of humor to the hosting gig, which should serve the show well since the other major dating show out there ("The Bachelor") is often serious and dramatic.
"Take Me Out" premieres with new episodes this summer.
Lopez will play matchmaker between the female contestants and the men hoping for the chance to take one lucky lady out on an ultimate dream date.
After the women narrow down their field to those interested in the guy on stage, the man takes charge until posing one final question to the two remaining women before choosing the winner.
Only a matter of months after his series "Lopez Tonight" met its end on TBS, George Lopez is officially heading back to primetime TV, but this time in a hosting capacity.
According to a new report from Deadline, Lopez will be overseeing the new dating show on Fox entitled "Take Me Out," which is based on a series in the United Kingdom about an eligible bachelor who tries to convince a group of women to go out on a date with him.
'Elisabeth and I discussed this at length over several weeks, and while I would love for her to continue here, I respect her incredibly difficult, yet deeply personal decision,' Ailes added, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The twist here is that the women can decide whether to continue to hear more about the man and what he brings to the table, or they can press a button declaring they are not interested.
