George Lopez knows a good thing when he hears it.
"In case you hadn't heard, Conan O'Brien will be joining us late night at TBS! Welcome!" the exuberant comedian announced Monday to his Lopez Tonight audience, reiterating the news that O'Brien has signed on to be Lopez's lead-in starting this November.
Lopez will be moving from 11 p.m. to midnight to accommodate the redheaded cable newcomer.
"I want to say that I am completely 100 percent on board with this move," Lopez continued. "I talked to Conan on Wednesday, I talked to him last night, and I said, 'I welcome you into my deep, loving embrace.' "
So apparently Lopez knew about TBS' late-night coup long before the rest of us CoCo fans. Long enough to come up with a new moniker, anyway.
