And it's gonna be on basic cable!

Conan O'Brien will face Leno and Letterman again as the he begins his new show on TBS at 11 p.m. It will air Monday through Thursday and premiere after the World Series in November.

"I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I'm headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly," said Conan.

The irony is that George Lopez's Lopez Tonight will be bumped to midnight to accommodate Conan.

Hope he does well - and George isn't too mad!

    So tell me why Lopez getting bumped isn't "outrageous" an why it's suddenly ok for Conan to move the other guy out of his spot but NBC can move Leno back to his original time an there's no problem?

    Biggest hypocrite ever you are. While them bumping Lopez may be unfair to George, I have no ill will towards Conan, same way I had none towards Jay. If your going to slag one guy off for taking someone elses time, you should do it to Conan too, otherwise stop this favouritism crap.

    The big shots at TBS talked with George Lopez before they approached Conan. He thinks it will be a great lead in for his own show. This has been widely reported. So why do you think he would be mad?

    Why should George Lopez be bumped? Put Conan on at the later time.



  4. 4

    Considering Lopez has only a couple people watching his show, maybe the few that will fall asleep during Conan's show will be able to wake up during Lopez's show and add a couple hundredths of a point on his ratings report…

    it's already been widely reported that Conan didn't take the spot until Lopez himself gave him his blessing. Conan didn't want to do to Lopez what was done to him. Lopez thinks that Conan being his lead in is the best thing that could've happened to him and has said that "TBS will have the best hair on television."

    I watched George lopez's show it was not very good. Only a few nights did he have really big stars. His ratings were lacking and that is why he got canceled it happens everyday in television. It is all about ratings because ratings bring in money we are a commerce driven society. I am so glad that Conan will be returning to the air because I have really missed him I never watch any of those other guys except for Craig Fergason different time slot all together.

    Lopez has already made the statement that he would love to have Conan lead him in. I think they will make a great line up.

    wow, way to get revenge on LENO - and bump LOPEZ! nice try - but I think you're doing it WRONG

    Re: ren347 – Do some research before you bitch and moan to Perez about favoritism. Besides, this isn't a news site. This is a gossip blog. People like to read Perez's opinion and if you don't like it you can read a newspaper.

    Not sure how I feel about this. I like Lopez Tonight. Its a thousand times better than the other cr@p they have on late night. Maybe Conan will add something better and new.

    I don't see the big deal about Leno. Snorefest!

    Perez, if you're gonna report things hours later could you atleast report EVERYTHING. Like Lopez statement for example, so people don't believe Conan did a Leno.

    Lopez actively RECRUITED Conan, and WILLINGLY moved to midnight as he feels Conan will be a big lead-in for HIS show.

    I don't have cable but TBS is live on the internet via LoggTV.com
    Conan-Lopez is a winning combination!



  14. 14

    Ah well - if it were on Fox I'd have watched it. TBS has sucky shows….so I guess now I don't have to bother watching.



  15. 15

    kinda funny how that happened to him and now he's doing it to someone else



  16. 16

    Im soo happy Conan didnt end on Fox. Lopez sucks!



  17. 17

    It's a great lead-in for George Lopez, Conan gets the freedom to do what he wants on basic cable (much like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central), and the network gets a huge ratings boost. Sounds like win, win, win to me.



  18. 18

    TBS?? :(



  19. 19

    CONAN IS BORING!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST LIKE JAY LENO. GEORGE LOPEZ IS FUNNY. AT LEAST ONE OF THEM IS ENTERTAINING.



  20. 20

    @ren347 If any of you people would do research before you commented on here, you would find out that this was actually George Lopez's idea HIMSELF. Not to mention, Conan's show will HELP the TBS line up and therefore help George's ratings. So Conan is doing George and TBS a big favor, which is not ANYTHING like what Leno did to Conan. If you're going to call someone a hypocrite and bash them like that, you might want to have get your facts straight first, ren347.

    good good cable is taking over the late night shows



  22. 22

    I'm not a Conan fan, but we couldn't watch it anyway, TBS is not available in Canadian… Sad… cause I wanted to follow Southland which I love :-(
