After his self-titled sitcom was cancelled in 2007, comedian George Lopez is finally returning to television with a late-night talk show on TBS.

“If change can come to the White House, then change can come to late night,” Lopez said. “Yes I can!”

The as-yet-untitled talk show is set to launch in November and air at 11pm weeknights, which means it’s second half-hour will run against NBC’s The Tonight Show and CBS’ Late Night.

The network said in a statement the show will have an “outdoor street-party atmosphere” with celebrity guests, live music and comedy acts.

George Lopez has “been out there with Barack Obama trying to get voters to register and vote” for selfish reasons, the comedic actor said on the The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet.

“He hasn’t nominated a Vice President yet,” Lopez, who is starring as a priest investigating miracles in Henry Poole Is Here with Luke Wilson, said. “I would bring (to the Vice Presidency) not only the Nick at Nite audience and great salsa music, I would make Carlos Santana Secretary of State.”

The groundbreaking comedian, who was the first Latino to lead a TV series successfully (besides Desi Arnaz of I Love Lucy), also made Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Hispanics list.

“I put that list together…I’m going to come clean right now,” he said. “I admire Jenifer Lopez and Antonio Banderas, who were named. Erik Estrada should have been on there!” he joked. “I would have put him somewhere in the high 80’s.”
