"In three months I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I'm headed back to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly."- Conan O'BrienIn case you missed the news, O'Brien (who has been doing a live comedy tour only to be sure that all the people that used to work for him on the Tonight Show had a paying job this year) signed a deal recently for a late night talk show on TBS during the 11pm slot.
Wait - does that mean that in bumping George Lopez to an hour later he will be crushing Lopez's childhood dream of having a late night talk show on TBS? :)
Actually, Lopez is fired up in the best way possible. Check out a quick summary of his comments this week here: http://www.tmz.com/videos?autoplay=true&mediaKey=884d725f-5545-4ce9-b3d1-6038f54c66c0
Which, to me, only underscores the beauty of teamwork. Lopez is well aware that Conan's presence and lead-in will only add to his own success at the midnight slot. Great stuff, and an even greater attitude.
