Conan O'Brien moving to the Southland

Conan O'Brien really isn't that funny as a talk show host. Nor is Jay Leno. We all know David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel are the kings of late-night (and to be fair, Craig
Kilborn Ferguson has many great moments too).
Nevertheless, in preparation of kicking Leno out in 2009, Conan has purchased a $10.5 million home in Brentwood:
The newly built, gated compound has six en suite bedrooms, including a master bedroom for O'Brien and his wife, Liza, that includes a sitting room, balcony and two bathrooms. The home, which the Multiple Listing Service notes was "just completed on one of Brentwood's most prestigious streets," has a screening room; a 1,500-bottle wine room; a paneled library with a bar; a 60-foot veranda; a pool; a spa; a pavilion with a fireplace; an outside kitchen; and canyon views. Inside are gracious public rooms, 10-foot ceilings and six fireplaces. [LA Times]
