Conan O'Brien announces name of TBS show



Conan O'Brien on Wednesday announced the title of his new late-night show on TBS in a video being widely distributed on the Internet. The mystery title: Conan. What, you thought it'd be Professor O'Brien's Spectabularistic Fantasmagorium Hour?

"I wanted one word that captured my essence, and Oprah'was already taken," O'Brien told New York magazine's Vulture blog. He then let the blog feature his video making the announcement (watch it above). "Conan. Simple. Pure, like the man himself, "O'Brien crows after scrawling the name on a piece of paper.

Vulture explains that it took so long to name the show because legal rights had to be secured even after the creative crew signed off on it. We can only imagine how many bodybuilders and comic book nerds will end up turning it on Nov. 8 thinking they'll see Arnold Schwarzenegger.
