TBS announced today that Conan O Brien will be on TBS late-night at the 11 p.m. time slot. That bumps Lopez Tonight back to the Midnight hour.
The network said O’Brien only began talking to execs there last week, and Lopez even called O’Brien himself. “I can’t think of anything better than doing my show with Conan as a lead-in,” Lopez said in a statement. O’Brien added, “In three months I’ve gone from network TV to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.”
