George Lopez assured the late night world that he welcomes Conan O'Brien to his TBS network. Though he will start later to accommodate the new host, Lopez is thrilled with the arrangement.

"I am not getting Leno-ed," he told Larry King Live on Tuesday. "I welcome Conan."

Lopez has been one of O'Brien's biggest cheerleaders, both before and after the TBS deal was announced. Even with the later start of his popular late-night show, Lopez has stated his belief that bringing the former-NBC host will only make TBS an after-hours powerhouse.

And there are other perks as well. "I'll go to work an hour later. Come on, it's a dream come true," Lopez said. "And the pay is the same."
