Conan O'Brien, George Lopez Joke About Being on Basic Cable
Conan O'Brien and his fellow TBS late-night host George Lopez swapped stories about the differences between working in broadcast TV vs. cable Monday night on O'Brien's show, Conan.
"You can say sh-t!," quipped Lopez, host of Lopez Tonight, which airs after Conan. [Watch the full interview below.]
He joked that TBS founder Ted Turner -- or rather former Saturday Night Live cast member Will Forte reprising his role on the late-night show -- had just bought his show for a $50 Zappos card.
The two also mentioned that they competed against such shows as A&E's Intervention and TLC's 19 Kids and Counting. Lopez joked that if he and O'Brien had to become addicts to steal viewers away from Intervention, then so be it.
