Fired!

| Filed under: TV NewsMario Lopez

wenn1916323.jpg

Mark McGrath is OUT as the host of TV's Extra.

The rocker turned celeb news show host is being replaced by none other than Mario Lopez.

Shit, Slater has probably been campaigning for the job since he joined Extra part-time in 2007.

When the show returns for its 15th season next month, co-host Dayna Devon is also getting a DEMOTION - she will remain on as "a special correspondent."

Lots of changes being made!

A rep for the show says, "[Mario Lopez] has established himself as a highly engaging, likeable and sought-after host and personality."

Hey, at least McGrath can fall back on his band, Sugar Ray.

Too bad no one cares about that band anymore!

    NOW, MOVE THE FUCK ON, GET OUTTA HERE, WE ARE SICK OF YOUR UGLY FACE.

    Although I don't like the shallow, over botoxed clown faced Dana Devon (uhhh, yeah your husband shoots you up with way too much botox) or asshole mark mcgrath, mario lopez is no better. Is is a freakin womanizer and is so in love with himself it is sickining. I think they should get rid of all 3 of them and start fresh. Sll three have about 3 brain cells each.

  12. fucki says – reply to this


    112

    Dana Devon can go get another tummy tuck, but it won't help. Her shit personality is just that, it's SHIT.

    All a talk show host like that is, is a wanna be celebrity… "oh, gosh, if only I were a celebrity… wait a minute, I'm on a stupid talk show and get to interview celebrities, so that makes me one! Yay!"

    Well I hate to break it to you, but you are no-talent shitheads… hear me? NO TALENT.

    Go learn a second language or how to knit and do something with your pathetic lives.

    MARIO LOPEZ HAS AN UNCOMFORTABLE CHEESY SMILE 24/7. WORST CHOICE FOR EXTRA…HE's OBSESSED WITH HIS BODY, HAS A WEIRD NASAL TWAIN VOICE, AND ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT MESH WELL WITH CELEBRITY NEWS. HE IS CORNY AND STUCK IN THE 80s. CHEATING GROSS FAKE PHONY PIG. EWWWWW.

    I WONT BE WATCHING EXTRA ANYMORE. ID RATHER WATCH DAILY 10. THEY HAVE FUNNY AND LIKEABLE TALENT THERE.

    114

    Mario Lopez looks like he's 12.
    .
    Mario Lopez is a little boy with short man's syndrome.
    .
    Mario Lopez thinks his smile is so cute, but I want to punch him hard in the face.
    .
    Mario Lopez looked like a DWEEB on the Men's Fitness cover.
    .
    Mario Lopez is the most UNNATURAL host on the planet… he is trying SO hard all the time and it's SO painfully obvious.
    .
    He has self esteem issues and it's SO apparent, it's just plain sad.
    .
    Get a life Mario, we could give a shit about your stupid dimples. You sad little boy.

    115

    Yeah, I agree…The daily 10 have funny cheeky writing and likeable hosts (even better than E! News in my opinion). Sal Masakala for example isnt the buffest hottest guy in the world, but I'd watch him over the played-out disgusting Mario Lopez any day. ANY DAY. And I'm a chick! It's not all about looks Extra!! It's about talent and likeability. WHO LIKES MARIO LOPEZ??? Not anyone besides desperate women in their 60s. Younger, cooler consumers of entertainment news don't like AC Slater. His smile is fake and nauseating. He just wants his hand in every pot. Shoulda stuck with Mark!! Or someone new.

  16. Patty says – reply to this


    116

    Dayna Devon was kinda boring and was getting kinda chunky in my opinion. She brought nothing to the table. Time for new hosts…maybe. But Mark is better than Mario. MARIO WILL LITERALLY MAKE ME STOP WATCHING! I will turn right to channel 2 and watch ET.

    Heck, I only started watching extra when Mark McGrath came on board. Mario Lopez gets on my nerves. Bye-bye "Extra"…I'm tuning out.

    122

    I'm sorry he's lost his job, but Mark McG is not an on-camera talent. He's actually quite creepy looking: yellow smile and nostrils so big you think you're looking at his brain.



  23. 123

    They both suck!!!

  24. Ariel says – reply to this

    ..Really?? I am in love with Mark McGrath, he is very attractive and talented. I also like Mario, but he does not compare at all.

  25. mario says – reply to this


    125

    yeah that mario is a sneaky bastard. no wonder he didn't win on dancing with the stars. say long to extra, cause that show is about to be in the toilet with mario at the helm.

  26. why says – reply to this


    126

    Why does Mario even have any jobs? He is so wack. If I were producer, I'd get fresh new talented reporters to host….not washed up 80s child's stars. What's a matter…Danny Bonaduce was busy? C'mon Extra. Save your show.

  27. HAHA says – reply to this


    127

    WHAT GENIUS DECIDED TO HIRE AC SLATER TO HOST THEIR SHOW? EVERYONE IN MY HOUSEHOLD SQUIRMS WHEN HE IS ON TV. BAD DECISION. BAD DECISION. BADDDDDDDDDDDD.

  28. Hanna says – reply to this


    128

    THAT'S FINE… AS LONG AS MARIO KEEPS HIS HEAD BOBBIN' TO A MINIMUM AND KEEP HIS HANDS OUT OF HIS JEANS POCKETS ONCE IN A WHILE. IT'S REALLY ANNOYING WHEN BOTH HOSTS DO THAT AT THE SAME TIME… LIKE WHEN THAT GIRL SHANIKA AND MARIO ARE BOTH STANDING NEXT TO EACH OTHER WITH BOTH OF THEIR HANDS IN THEIR JEAN POCKETS.

    OTHER THAN THAT.. MARIO IS CHARMING AND APPEALS TO THE AUDIENCE. I WILL NEVER FORGET HIS REACTION WHEN HE was HOSTING MISS TEEN USA WHEN THAT CONTESTANT GAVE HER ANSWER ABOUT AMERICANS NOT OWNING A MAP AND HOW WE SHOULD LIKE HELP SOUTH AFRICA. HAHAHA…. IF IT WERE ME, I WOULD'VE LAUGHED MY ASS OFF RIGHT THEN AND THERE.

  29. EWW says – reply to this


    129

    My problem with Mario Lopez is how fake he is. He is a total jerk who tries to cover it up with that ugly smile. Yes I think it's ugly. Cant he go own a restaurant or something. Let go of the limelight you HASBEEN. The Dorito girl was SO LUCKY to break up with your lame ass.

    131

    Maybe something can be done - I hate Mario Lopez, he's ugly, cheesy and annoying. Whenever he is on something I turn it off b/c he just seems like a robo human - I'm sad for Mark - I've always wanted to do him :(

  32. Shell says – reply to this


    132

    While I loathe Mark whatever his name is - what a super cheeser - I HATE Mario Lopez. I will especially tune out if he is on it. He makes me want to vomit as much as Heidi and Spencer. I can't even look at any of their talentless faces. SERIOUSLY. I scan right over them because they make me want to gag and it makes me ashamed I even read the gossips. Which I love. I was at an E3 party for Ubisoft and for some reason Heidi and Spencer were the "reps" and we laughed at her and she heard us in the bathroom - she was obviously embarassed to be there as it was only a money gig. What has Hwood turned in to? They are not even B-celebs. They have nothing to do with video games and are both completely pathetic. And why does he always dress like he's going to church? No style and she is stupid as hell. They are both ridiculous and I can't believe they get ANY press. STUPID!!!!! Perez, quit giving them props. NOBODY CARES.

    love love love sugar ray…new album in 2009.

    i know for a fact he wasn't too fond of the extra gig anyway (not a 9-5er). on to better things!

    NOTE TO EXTRA PRODUCERS~~~~~~~~ way to go, there goes your show down the drain……gag me, Mario Lopez, ewww…. his ugly too much muscle look and his fake smile and the way he treats women….YUCK YUCK YUCK…….. Mark and D.Devon were a perfect match…
    Interesting pt. whenever Mario comes on in NYCITY, I and many I know switch to CBS ’till he's off the air.
    SO great move NBC……..first you ruin the Tonight Show which will never be the same with Jay gone and bring in YUCK, Conan to replace him… and now Extra with Mario Lopez…..TO NBC, I say…bye,bye,bye…. keep it up and there will be nothing left of your stupid Network and your stupid, non viewer friendly hosts. You had two things going for you and you let them go…Pathetic idiots. That's my story and I"m sticking to it. me in avon,ct.

    This is really too bad. I really like Mark McGrath and Dayna Devon and think they do a really good job. I guess I won't be watching EXTRA anymore, because I can't stand Mario Lopez. He is soooooooooo overrated and full of himself. He makes me sick. He does not deserve this job. I hope Mark and Dayna move on to bigger and better things.

  44. Pffft says – reply to this

    Mark was way too smart for that fluffy gossip gig in the first place. Hopefully he's stashed away some major coin, and will find something challenging.

    Mark McGrath and Sugar Ray are cool with me. McGrath is very talented, and he put Sugar Ray on hold for a while so he could do the show and party. I think Mario will get them more ratings though.

    150

    Ok Perez,

    I love you to pieces but when it comes to music…you of all people,
    a music lover, should not disrespect bands.

    Sugar Ray is a great band, and it may not be your cup of tea, but
    beneath the Top 40 hits that do rock…..this band TRULY rocks.

    I don't think half of the people on the site know they play kick
    ass music…I just saw them at House of Blues…and am quite
    disappointed that you did not FACT check your homework.

    Who f'ing cares about the Extra job…Mark McGrath and the
    rest of the band just participated in a benefit concert over the
    weekend and at House of Blues in Anaheim…and if you'd known that…I would have hoped that you would have reported on that GOOD news , not this news.

    This was a "Very Important benefit concert" and Sugar Ray was out supporting it over the weekend. Please do not tear apart someone who has a heart of gold beyond words!!!
    I truly hope you do go look into what I am speaking about…and I truly hope you get the word out about this important sitaution.
    It would be greatly appreciated.!!!!

    Thank you Perez!~~~~~

  51. just says – reply to this


    151

    NOTE: When I said half the people on the site may not know that Sugar Ray rocks…I was referring to them possibly not hearing Sugar Ray's music before, or at all.
    That was all I was referring to… so I wanted to clarify that part.
    Oh yeah…and Mario Lopez… "PLEASE" , the guy cheated on his
    Dancing with the Stars girlfriend. " Way to go to promote hiring someone who cheats on his girlfriend" Extra head honchos…Great job…. "NOT!!!!!"

    forget about a sugar ray comeback…….anyone ever hear of a little famous hollywood coverband mcgrath sings in called CAMP FREDDY? hello….he aint hurtin for cash or the ladies……not by a long shot…….if he's good enuff to play with DAVE NAVARRO and BILLY MORRISON…..then he's good enuff for me…….Y'ALL CAN EAT A DICK SON…………….LONG LIVE MARK MCGRATH…….THE NICEST GUY IN ROCK N MUTHAFUKN ROLL!!!!!

    154

    WTF? What is this obsession and fixation on Mario Lopez? Seriously, what has he ever done besides "Saved by the Bell." OK, so he's sort of an actor. But why are they demoting Dayna Devlin? that's stupid! She's been on one of the morning radio shows here several times - I seriously doubt the hosts will want to talk to that preening pretty boy Mario!! "Extra" is going to the toilet to join "Entertainment Tonight"!!

    I think that he and Dayna should take over for Pat O Brien and Mary Hart!

    I feel for Mark McGrath, and think that the Extra executives are vultures, but I also can't help but wonder whose spot McGrath stole when he first went to work on Extra? I imagine it was some older person who was doing a good job that they gave the boot to give Mark the job. If you're going to work in a shark tank, you have to expect things like this.
    .
    P.S. - Ewwww at all the tattoos! Just wait ’til he's 20 years older and looks fugly with those tats. Tats suck!

    Go to nbc.com to complain.

    Go to the very bottom of the page, on the bottom left, and click on "contact us." use the pulldown menu to select "other," since Extra isn't listed as one of their options (probably on purpose to avoid having the public email them).
    .
    In your subject type something like DON'T FIRE MARK MCGRATH FROM EXTRA.
    .
    Let NBC hear from you!

    Well, I for one will NOT be watching that show anymore. I liked Mark McGrath because he was normal and cute and not a stupid poseur in love with himself like Mario Lopez. Now if he replaced the ancient but ever-gushing Mary Hart, I would be happy. After 27 years or whatever, is is time for her to GO.

    Lopez suffers from typical overexposure. He was such a nice surprise on Dancing With the Stars that he forgot that less is more. If he would ration himself out, the public wouldn't have already turned on him. Hilton suffered from the same phenomenon. This job was a too-easy ferry ride to the bank for McGrath. He's better off starting something new in the long run before his brain turns to mush.

    Always thought it was odd that Mark took this job but I LOVE HIM. He's one of the nicest, down to earth celebs I've met. I knew Mario was out for the job when he signed on in Jan 07…I'm only surprised it took so long.

    Maybe the ratings were sagging because the show only airs at 2:05am?!
    Rock on Sugar Ray!!!

    Mark wasn't fired….he wants to stop doing the show to concentrate on Sugar Ray. Maybe they'll make a comeback? Who knows? And A.C. Slater can't seem to do much these days besides being a host for random shows anyways………..

    I moved back to the U.S. after practicing health care in Singapore. I had never even heard of Mark McGrath and his band, but I had heard of Mario. After watching Extra on my new , clearer TV, I wondered why they had even used Mark as host. Dayna always outclassed him. He is not an upfront pretty guy. He looks like a teenager with virtually no neck–his head appears to sit right on his shoulders. He also needs a stylist. Maybe someone can stretch him and suit him up with some new duds–too bad he's going to have to beg for a job.

    After I scrolled down to look at comments others have made, I feel nauseated thinking about the fact that I wanted to write something here. I get the impression that most of the people here have a very limited and lewd repertoire of words. Hey folks, spend more time reading books and learning to write English compositions instead of filling your heads with smut.
