Conan O’Brien‘s new show hasn’t even hit the airwaves yet, but it’s safe to say he’s got a better working relationship with George Lopez than he ever did with Jay Leno.
Watch the video on RadarOnline.com.
The talk show funnymen met up Wednesday night, when O’Brien made a surprise cameo on Lopez’s late night show, just four days before he takes over the 11 pm slot in his long-awaited return to late night.
“Welcome to TBS, welcome to basic cable,” Lopez told Conan.
“I never heard basic cable get shrieks of excitement [before,]” O’Brien said, as he soaked up the cheers coming from the studio audience.
O’Brien then tried to pass off a few misspoken phrases in Spanish — translating to “My fig has 8 bathrooms” and “My wrist has sex” — to Lopez, as the hosts stood alongside one another on the set.
O’Brien hosted NBC’s The Tonight Show until this past January, when poor ratings and company politics led NBC to replace him on The Tonight Show with the man he’d replaced less than a year before, Jay Leno.
Lopez Tonight moves to midnight on TBS when O’Brien takes over the 11 pm slot Monday.
