TV Land has announced that it has renewed their new comedy “Lopez” for a second season. Ratings weren’t great for the series, but with TV Land ending most of their traditional sitcom slate, the bar has been a bit lower for these new single camera series. This is George Lopez’s third sitcom, after his hit ABC sitcom “George Lopez”, and his not so hit sitcom “Saint George” that lasted one season on FX.
