"I don't see the show not being on the air," Lopez told the New York Daily News. "We've already gotten the unofficial word."
So far this season, the show is averaging 7.6 million viewers, up a tad from the 7.4 million average of last season, the Daily News said Thursday.
Assuming there is a next season for the show, fans can look forward to Lopez resuming a more active part in the writing, the comedian said.
