We suppose that instead about worrying about his reaction to the news, we should be thanking George Lopez for Conan O'Brien's glorious return back to late-night television!
Sources are claiming that the head of Turner Entertainment, Steve Koonin, approached Lopez to see if he would be okay with moving his show back to midnight, and have the giant ginge as his lead-in!
Lopez then PERSONALLY called Conan and assured him that he would not pull a Leno on his new partner, and despite ongoing negotiations with FOX, a deal was signed within days!
Wow! Sounds like a much happier, more amicable agreement!
We're thrilled to have you back, bb!
