Since its Sept. 13 premiere, "Mario Lopez: One-On-One" has featured Hollywood's favorite housewife Eva Longoria and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. The Longoria episode delivered the show's highest-rated original telecast to date, as Longoria chatted with Lopez about her family, childhood and love lessons.
Sanchez opened up about growing up in Southern California, his close relationship with family and being a bachelor who still takes relationship advice from mom.
"Mario's star power, strong connection to today's modern Latino audience, and his unparalleled ability to draw major talent have made his show an immediate hit with our viewers," said Michael Schwimmer, CEO of nuvotv. "We are pleased to be extending our relationship with Mario and his production team."
