Late Night Highlights: Highlander, Blackface, Larry David's DNA Test and Bill Murray Reads
If you missed the maiden voyage of TBS's venture into late night, fear not, because Moveline can sum up the boilerplate Lopez Tonight episode in 10 seconds: "Low Rider" opening song, a few jokes about Lopez's racist abuela or slutty tía, awkward pre-taped or live segment, schtick with a comedian Lopez knows personally, and then, a sometimes-moving musical number. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's take a look at this week's late night moments that were actually worth watching.
Most Reluctant Guest
Like many TBS viewers, Larry David voiced anger, confusion, and regret over his choice to appear on Lopez Tonight, complaining "I'd rather give you a kidney than do this again." Making matters worse, the Curb Your Enthusiasm star agreed to take a DNA test for the show.
Disasters With Animal Segments
A viewer notified Late Night that a Brazilian cockroach from a previous segment had jumped out of its cage on air, unleashing frenzy in the studio audience. The roach was later discovered on set.
