About (Late) Last Night: Conan looks back at Oprah's craziest fans [Video]
On Wednesday, the only news that really mattered -- at least in the world of entertainment, anyway -- was the much-hyped, somewhat preachy series finale of "The Oprah Winfrey Show." It's a pity that both "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" are in reruns this week, since media spectacles like this are bread-and-butter for both shows. Luckily, Conan O'Brien was on hand to pick up the slack.
In his monologue, O'Brien pointed out that Oprah would be nowhere without her swarms of passionate, devoted fans. He introduced a slow-motion montage featuring some of her more expressive fans, including:
- The Jumping Clapper
- The Face Fanner
- The Kiss Blower
- The Weeper
- The "Hands on Head" Woman
- The Extremely Alarmed Grandma
For the complete list, watch the video above. It was a fitting tribute to Oprah's fanatical fans, and the exuberance she (not to mention, lots of free goodies) tends to inspire. The question is, did O'Brien leave out any fans? For reference, you might want to check out this video, which may be the finest example of Oprah-induced mania from her quarter-century on the air.
