** A very recent TakeThat comes in the form of the new Jimmy Smits vehicle ''Outlaw'', about a Supreme Court justice who resigns to become a private lawyer, produced by '''Conan'''[='s=] production company, Conaco, and airing on...NBC. Which was, subsequently, canned after only four episodes aired. [[WildMassGuessing It's almost as if]] [[TakeThat Conan made them a mediocre show]] [[MagnificentBastard on purpose...]]

'''Conan O'Brien''' (born April 18, 1963) is the former host of ''Series/LateNight With Conan O'Brien'' following DavidLetterman's departure. He then hosted ''TheTonightShow'' after the departure of Jay Leno. The ratings for Leno's new show weren't stellar, but NBC was okay with it until local affiliates cried foul when their local news programmes suffered consequent ratings drops, leading NBC to cancel Leno's new show, and then try to fit Jay, Conan, and Jimmy Fallon into their late night line up when Leno still wanted a job at the end of the day. Conan said it would ruin the institution of ''The Tonight Show'' for the show to go into the next day (an inevitable result of cramming three comedians into less than three hours), and was ultimately let go from his contract (with $45 million mind you...) and Leno took back his old time slot. Whether he was of a douche/overall-nice-guy-who-wanted-to-keep-his-job Leno was and/or how much of a principled victim/baby O'Brien was, its pretty universally accepted that NBC [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screwed up big]]. Go to AdoredByTheNetwork to see a few more details of this debacle.

On April 12, 2010, Conan announced a five-year deal with {{TBS}} to do an 11 PM talk show, to begin as soon as the no-compete clause in his Creator/{{NBC}} severance package expired that fall. After much speculation on what this show is to be called, Mr. O'Brien eventually came up with the single most original, most creative, most "I-want-to-watch-this-fine-basic-cable-programming" title ever known to mankind:
