Conan Names New Show Conan

Short and sweet: Conan O’Brien has named his upcoming TBS late-night program Conan. New York Magazine lists several other possibilities: The Coco Show!, Up Late with Conan, Conan 3.0. But it says plain old Conan was chosen weeks ago. Why, then, the reason for the delay? It’s possible that O’Brien had to pry the rights for that name away from the creators of Conan the Barbarian.
