I hope the show is funnier than this bit. But, then, Leno isn't all that funny, either.

Since when does a person need permission from anyone else to use their own birth name?

I don't get the big woop on Conan. The guy isn't that funny and its more like factory line comedy every night.

Conan, isn't funny; never was funny; never will be funny. His new show will just make the great wasteland greater.

Thanks, Pookie -- those of us with employers who don't allow allow streaming video over the company servers have just been teased, with no answer. Would it have hurt to actually type the name in the actual text of the blog post?

It's confusing. What does it mean?

klaw, those of us with a basic level of reading comprehension were able to see that the name of the show will simply be 'Conan'. You're welcome.
