Trivia / The George Lopez Show

  • Adored by the Network: Nick At Nite loves showing repeats of the show.
    • For good reason: it's the highest-rated show on NAN.
  • The Danza:
    • George Lopez as George Lopez.
    • Jack Blessing as Jack Powers.
  • Dawson Casting: Masiela Lusha was 16 when she started the series as 13-year-old Carmen.
    • Taken to a bigger extreme with Veronica. She's supposed to be around 20 but her actress was pretty close to 30, though she looks much younger.
  • Fake Nationality: Carmen's actress is actually Albanian-American.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Seasons 1-5 have been released on DVD, with Seasons 4 & 5 coming from the Warner Archive Collection. No plans as yet for Season 6.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Benny's actress Belita Moreno. During an interview with George about the show he was asked which actor is the least like their character, He said that unlike Benny, Belita is a very nice person.
    • Carmen's actress Masiela Lusha is an accomplished humanitarian and author, who graduated high school at 15. A far cry from the emotional Jerkass and "anonymous C student" she portrays, though she did quit the show over creative differences.
  • Producers: Sandra Bullock is a co-executive producer of the show; she's good friends with Lopez and helped get his show off the ground, then eventually had a guest-starring turn as Accident Amy.
  • Vindicated by Cable: A modest hit on ABC, it has found tremendous success in syndication, especially on Nick at Nite, where it draws the highest ratings on the channel's late-night block.
