Is there already late night drama over at TBS? Rumors have swirled that George Lopez was warned by TBS executive chiefs that his show Lopez Tonight would be axed if he wasn’t supportive of Conan O’Brien‘s late night arrival.
I’m all for the late night drama to start, but I don’t want to see George start taking back his kind words about Sandra Bullock too!
Maybe it isn’t Lopez that doesn’t want Conan, maybe it is his evil twin. Seriously, the wax figure that was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in LA on April 1st looks just like him!
The New York Post claims the Lopez camp is disheartened that Conan’s contract states “if Lopez’s show is canceled, then Conan will be able to develop a show for the midnight hour.” But, a TBS rep states that the recent claims are false and TBS supports both Lopez and O’Brien.
Lopez’s rep confirms also, “This information is false and fabricated.”
Earlier reports claim that Lopez was honored to be following Conan’s time slot and called Conan himself to encourage him to come to TBS. From giving Dakota Fanning a tattoo to talking about vagazzaling with Jennifer Love Hewitt, I can only see Lopez Tonight only going up with O’Brien’s arrival!
