There are a LOT of people who are with you on that one. The last Lopez Tonight was August 11, 2011 and I made it a point to watch that. George opened the show with a drink in his hand and he was obviously already drunk. His primary guest that night was Eva Longoria. She was totally hot and leggy and also seemed already drunk. At the end of the show, it wasn't obvious but you could see that George was shedding a sad tear.
People who paid attention to the situation know that the show's ratings numbers in its last year plunged 40%, so TBS gave him the axe. It was a quick axe, too. He had only a day or so's notice. So instead of the scheduled guests, he retooled it and got on some of his favorite guests and friends.
The irony of it all was that it was George who convinced Conan to come to TBS.
