Lopez vs. Lopez is getting a new timeslot for the rest of the season, and it’s quite the upgrade.
The freshman NBC will move to Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m., beginning April 25.
NBC has not given a reason for the switcheroo, but it could indicate the network is interested in airing the series out of Night Court in the fall.
Night Court Season 1 has been a decent performer for the network.
The Melissa Rauch-fronted Night Court scored a speedy renewal earlier this year.
Despite some slippage in recent weeks, it is still a good performer, so there’s a chance Lopez vs. Lopez will get a boost on Tuesdays.
The timeslot change comes at a crucial time, too. Networks will be making their fall decisions in the coming weeks.
If the show can build a bit, it should be a lock for renewal and will likely be paired with Night Court in the fall.
Lopez vs. Lopez is averaging 2 million viewers and a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49 in Live + Same Day results.
The network revealed in a press release that the series soars to a 0.8 rating in the demo in Live + 35 results.
The series has also struck a chord with Peacock viewers, becoming the #2 NBC comedy on the streaming service.
Across all platforms, the series premiere has reached 10 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the demo.
The cast includes George Lopez, Mayan Lopez, Selenis Leyva, Brice Gonzalez, Matt Shively, and Al Madrigal.
