And The Name Of Conan's New Show Is ...
CNN.COM - With a name like "Conan," it's got to be good… or is that Smucker's? Either way, Conan O'Brien has finally announced the name of his new late-night show, which will air on TBS come November.
The name? "Conan." Obviously.
O'Brien's news came in the form of a YouTube video posted to Vulture. "I've spent millions of dollars, I've had media research companies, we've had thousands of people working round the clock and we have got it," the host said before writing "Conan" on a piece of paper.
However, O'Brien acknowledged that the last letter of his name looked more like a "W" than an "N," so there's a chance his show might also be called "Conaw" – but we doubt it.
The late-night host tweeted Tuesday that followers should be on the lookout for the name of his new show. He later said in a press release, "I'm just using "Conan" and dropping the "O'Brien" because I want to get away from the whole Irish thing."
"I was going to announce the name of my new show today, but my lawyers tell me 'The Return of Nanny McPhee' is taken. Tune in tomorrow," he wrote.
"Conan" is set to premiere on Monday, November 8, at 11 p.m. ET on TBS which, like CNN, is owned by Time Warner.
