TBS Brings In Letterman Vet For Lopez Show

NEW YORK (AP) — TBS has a veteran late-night producer who worked with David Letterman on hand to work on George Lopez’s talk show.

The hiring of Robert Morton as executive producer two months ago has gone almost unnoticed with all the attention paid to Conan O’Brien’s debut on the network next week. But TBS wanted a makeover for “Lopez Tonight” to cash in on the interest in O’Brien.

Lopez’s show is moving to midnight to accommodate O’Brien an hour earlier.

Morton spent 14 years with Letterman and won a Peabody Award. He’s also worked with Wayne Brady, Drew Carey, Chris Rock and Jon Stewart.

Morton says he’s been trying to make “Lopez Tonight” less of a talk show and more of a comedy show with some conversations.
