"So hey! Did you guys see the news?" he asked. "Unemployment is at an all-time high and for Latinos it just got a little higher."

But George is trying to stay positive about his career after this bad news.

"I did get some good news this morning though. Sony announced they were doing a sequel to The Smurfs movie," George said while wiping his brow. "So today I lost some work because I'm brown, but also I got some work because I'm blue."

So, what is George's plan now?

"And really almost like every TV star who loses his job. Now what am I going to do, everybody asks. What am I going to do now? Like every TV star before I'm going to find some crack," he joked. "I'm going to get on the pipe. Lose that unwanted 110 pounds I've been trying to lose."

George said he's taking the news fine, but his "goddesses" are a wreck.

"We're not saying goodbye," George explained. "We're saying cable doesn't work."

Should Conan O'Brien be worried?
