    So, basically what Conan didn't like Leno doing to him on NBC he is now doing to George Lopez on TBS? Hmm...

    Big difference. People actually like Conan O'Brien :p I'm obviously being a little sarcastic here, but I honestly don't find George Lopez funny at all. Even his commercials irritate me.

    ...then again I'm easily irritable.

    good for him.
    no matter where he goes, i'll continue to watch his shows with the same religious assiduity as I have in the last few weeks.

    Conan's new show will get a lot of publicity in the fall since TBS shows the MLB playoffs. Anything is better than NBC and I'm sure TBS will give him a lot of leeway.

    Tbs!

    I cant believe TBS is still around!

    Anybody remember "Dinner and a Movie"?

    I would watch that with my dad when I was younger

    With Paul and Annabelle.

    Other than Braves baseball does TBS ever show anything original? My current perception of TBS is "the rerun channel" that occasionally shows Titanic.

    I don't think they show Braves baseball anymore. They did pick up one of the national baseball packages that I don't know who watches. Besides their playoff coverage that is horrible the only thing I watch on TBS is Family Guy reruns.

    Maybe they will move Conan to Adult Swim since it is all under the same umbrella.

    Nice spin. He went from the premier hosting gig on TV to a basic cable channel. I feel bad for the guy.

    I would not call NBC a premiere network anymore. They rank 4th in just about every ratings period.

    If TBS gives him enough lee-way he'll probably like this gig a lot better anyways, I loved conan before he went to the late show. They tried to jam a square peg in a circular hole.

    The big question here, of course -- does this mean the Masturbating Bear will make a comeback?

    Not as the masterbating bear, that is owned by NBC. Maybe you would see the jacking off gopher.

    Conan will have to start off from scratch with new material.

    What the hell does NBC want with the masturbating bear? Are they giving that to Jay too? :rolleyes:

    NBC owns all of Letterman's old bits too. It is all intellectual property.

    Actually, I've read that George Lopez called Conan and asked him to come to TBS, and to even take his timeslot because of the kick-ass lead in that Conan will give his show. This will only help Lopez's ratings.

    I was hoping PBS would take Conan.

    Anyways I think FOX will regret this!

    I think NBC owns MB. Maybe masturbating ostrich?

    yep, Lopez is not stupid. He knew that this would bring a cortizon shot to his dying show

    That would work if Lopez aired at 11 and Coco at 12. Damn dyslexic Mexican. :p

    jackoff jackalope? masturbating manatee?

    I wonder if he will buy them back from them. Stern did the same thing when he went to satellite, it just took a little bit of time to get the logistics worked out.

    Where else can you watch re-runs of Friends, Seinfeld, and Family Guy?
