Buddy George Lopez checks in on Sandra Bullock (again)

Lopez lopez If there were ever a time Sandra Bullock needed friends she can trust, this is it -- and it appears George Lopez fills the bill

The "Lopez Tonight" host swung by her place again Monday, braving a crowd of photographers outside the front gate of the home where she's essentially being held captive by the tawdry news that's breaking around her. (Witness the DefCon 5-style media activity Thursday when she emerged for the first time since mid-March.)

George had visited before, after the Kids' Choice Awards, which we'd like to remind you ...

'Jersey Shore' crew does a little 'Hurt Locker' for George Lopez

OK, we admit -- there's not much newsy-news-news here. But the one-liners in this clip from George Lopez's "The Jersey Shore Presents: Hurt Locker" made us laugh.

And we really didn't want to laugh. Because we have no sense of humor.

"The Hurt Locker" spoof is Monday's target, and the clip above is a preview of what "Lopez Tonight" will feature all week: guido and guidette versions of scenes from best picture nominees including that movie and "Avatar," "Up in the Air," "Inglorious Basterds" and "Precious."

Can't imagine Snooki Polizzi in "Precious"? We couldn't either. Until ...

VIDEO: Kathy Griffin on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards

Kathy Griffin says she's "so at home here in the music industry" -- and it shows.

This year, she's "here as an artist and to talk smack about the people that are here, and I'm nominated, which is unfathomable ... so they're not able to kick me out."

Griffin is up for best comedy album for "Suckin’ It for the Holidays." Listen to what she has to say about her bet with fellow nominee George Lopez.

J.Lo, lunch lady? Yes, if 'Glee' gets its way -- and if she can walk away from 'Lopez Tonight'

Jlo Ryan Murphy said it backstage Sunday at the Golden Globes, and today it was confirmed: "Glee," the winner for best comedy or musical, is trying to lure Jennifer Lopez as a guest star. 

“I have a meeting with Jennifer Lopez in a couple weeks,” Murphy said Sunday night. “She wants to come on. We want her to be a cafeteria lady.”

No need to wait to see J.Lo on TV, however -- this very evening she's stepping into George Lopez's shoes in the role of talk-show host.

Hey, the program is called "Lopez Tonight." Nobody said it had to be George -- as J.Lo points out so very, ahem, delicately in her opening monologue.

50 Cent on street cred, college and, of course, Tiger Woods

Fifty Street cred or college ed? George Lopez asked 50 Cent which he would've preferred, if he could have picked.

Given the choice, "I would probably rather go to school for business," the rapper said Monday on "Lopez Tonight."

 "The things that they make reference to as 'street cred' are things that I feel unfortunate to have had the experience," he said.

You can catch 50 Cent with Nick Cannon on Cannon's "Hatin' on '09" TV special set for New Year's Eve.

He also had some insights regarding Tiger Woods, but you'll have to watch the video for those.

For those who aren't following the scandal closely: The one Tiger allegedly "picked" at Perkins is Mindy Lawton.

She's the pancake waitress, not the porn star.

Kathy Griffin tells George Lopez she wants to go gay for Elin Nordegren

Griffin Tiger Woods has earned a place on Kathy Griffin's D-list -- and Elin Nordegren has caught her eye too.

Sitting on George Lopez's couch Monday night on "Lopez Tonight," Griffin put her own spin on Tiger's "transgressions" debacle.

The Ministry likes her astute analysis: She's ready to go gay for the golfer's Swedish model wife "because she is going to be rolling in it" and because whatever the heck Elin's name is "sounds like an IKEA end table."

And when Kathy goes swinging into a non-PC place regarding domestic violence, it's hard to tell if George is laughing, crying or anticipating how many people are gonna call up to say, "Well, that's just not funny!! That's never funny!! I see no funny whatsoever!!"

Just a reminder: It's only comedy. These are the jokes, folks.

Click if you dare to watch the video (Kathy knows words that are appropriate for late-night TV), and scroll down to "Kathy Griffin on Tiger."

George Lopez leads USC's Spirit of Troy -- plus that funky band War [UPDATED]


With comedian George Lopez stepping into USC band director Arthur C. Bartner's shoes (and up onto his big ol' ladder), halftime was a little funkier than usual Saturday at the Trojans' last home game of the 2009 season.

At George's command, the funk-rock-soul-R&B band War (a particular fave of the Ministry's senior officers, incidentally) grooved through a medley of "Low Rider," "Cisco Kid" and "Why Can't We Be Friends" while the star of TBS' late show "Lopez Tonight" got seriously into it.

The man looked good on the big screen, and shared some pics via Twitter too.

Click here to see how great it is to be George Lopez! Seriously. The USC Song Girls are involved.
