“A Latino and a redhead–it’s worked before. Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball.” In the clip above from Monday night’s George Lopez Show, check out Lopez’s take on Conan O’Brien coming to TBS. The bit–a goof on O’Brien’s lip-synch sketches as a way around NBC’s no talking on TV gag order–features another shot at Jay Leno. The Tonight Show host, meanwhile, made no mention of O’Brien’s TBS news on his show, instead allowing his bandleader Kevin Eubanks to confirm that he is bolting Tonight in the next six weeks. “After 18 years of playing America in to commercials, I’m gonna go somewhere where I can finish a song,” Eubanks said.
Kimmel, of course, did go there on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, saying Leno was preparing to move his show now to TBS.
