LKL tonight: George Lopez on his new colleague, Conan O'Brien

Posted: 08:33 AM ET

Note: Late night host George Lopez will be joining us TONIGHT – we'll get his take on Conan O'Brien joining him on TBS, or as he called it via twitter, "Team LO-CO." Do you think this is a good move for Conan?  Will you watch his new show on TBS?  We want to hear what you think, and don't forget to tune in tonight at 9pmet!

Ousted "Tonight Show" host Conan O'Brien will return to late-night television in November with a show on cable channel TBS, the network said Monday.

O'Brien's talk show will air weeknights at 11 p.m. ET/PT, leading into "Lopez Tonight" which will shift to a midnight start, TBS said.

"I can't think of anything better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in," George Lopez said. "It's the beginning of a new era in late-night comedy."

Negotiations for the deal began last week after Lopez called O'Brien to ask him to consider joining the network, TBS said.

George Lopez wasn't "nice" to give up his time slot, he was SMART!

Sorry Mr. Lopez but I never knew you had a show, let alone when and where. Well, we ALL know now. Plus he now has Conan as a lead in as opposed to whatever show is before his, which I never heard of either.

Hi Larry,

George Lopez indicated on your show that as 'head of the Latinos' should Sarah Palin become president he would lead them back to the promised land... Mexico... well for God sake if that is all we have to do to fix the immigration problem I think perhaps we should all back Sarah.

What says ye?

Best Regards,

@ Gene Caiazzo

Your name sure doesn´t sound like Black Wolf or any other native American name, so you also must be an immigrant or son of an immigrant from Italy.

Millions of italians immigrated to the USA, because they did not have enought to eat in Italy. So did germans, hungarians, russian jews, irish, poles, etc. How would you feel if you were treated in the same manner as you talk about latinos in your blog?

We are a nation of immigrants!! Yes, we have a problem with illegal immigration, however that must be solved in a just and friendly way.
For your information, you will pay a lot more for fruits and vegetables if the cheap labor provided by those poor people from Mexico will not be available. No more cheap cleaning ladies, gardeners and all other manial workers.

Please, please Conan, give up the blue background on your set and give us some colors like yellow, whites, touches of red, green and maybe teal blue.
The colors on your set and your blue shirts are not appealing...they are too dull for your personality.
Lighten up the colors on your set please!!!
oh, and get rid of that old retro intro , Bonnie Hunt should do the is just not appealing!!
