TBS told Conan they were going to move Lopez to midnight. Conan said no, he didnt want to do that to someone. Lopez called him personally and told him that he wanted Conan to come to TBS and that he was happy to move to midnight. I've never watched his show, he's annoying.
I watched the Lopez show once, he had his wife+daughter from the Lopez Show on(Constance Marie/Masiela Lusha), and they're both hot so I didn't turn it off for that segment. Constance was actually pretty funny, Lopez not so much.
look, Conan is a big name that people who don't watch tv can recognize wheras lopex is known for a show people watched because the chicks were hot. Conan refusing to take lopez's spot had to get the execs thinking "get rid of lopez so conan has no choice"...compromise? get lopez to take a backseat and offer conan the spot "graciously" when in reality lopez is protecting his job for the few months it has left.
