Default George Lopez on Carnival

I just watched George Lopez announce he is being named the new Curator of Comedy for Carnival. Any bets this is today's big announcement??

That was his roadshow... not the TV ones...

The folks at Carnival have been very exicted about their association with Guy.

If that news is true, what would that mean for Carnival? Would George be on a ship somewhere at some point?

I think that the person who posted that "his shows were just cancelled" was referencing George Lopez's talk show, not any of Guy's shows.

I enjoy both George and Guy , so eiither or is a home run to me.

God , would be great to have some of those "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives " meals onboard a ship. Then go to the louge and watch George perform.

I know its a pipe dream, but it would be nice.
