Maybe Conan should simply change his surname to Leno.

Jennifer Lopez surprised the audience at the start of Lopez Tonight on Monday when she stepped out on stage instead of usual host George Lopez to deliver her own little monologue. 

"Welcome to Lopez Tonight, where nobody gets fired. They just get replaced by a bigger star with the same last name," she joked (we think).

But the jabs by J.Lo didn't stop there…

She also pointed out that a bar in New York has created a cocktail in honor of Conan called the "Go-Back-to-Manhattan"…It's a Manhattan with sour grapes and a knife in it."

And the hits just kept on comin'!

"NBC is thinking about changing the NBC peacock to a cougar, since they are trying to attract young people to an old host," she teased about Leno.

But she didn't stop at NBC's roster.

"Some women don't like the expression 'cougar,' but it's better than what guys get, right? An older guy who dates a younger girl, that's called a 'Letterman.' "

While the other Lopez eventually did come out to relieve her, we couldn't help but think maybe Jenny from the Block should get her own late-night show. Of course, as long as she doesn't come out singing this or wearing that, we'll be fine.
