'Conan' announces first week of guests. Who are you most excited to see?

Conan-OBrienImage Credit: Jay Brady/Everett CollectionUnless there’s a late push, it doesn’t look like my vote for Gerhard Ertl in the Conan First Guest Poll will have been put to good use. Nonetheless, there seems to be a ton of other guests during the show’s first week who will bring me as much — if not nearly as much — pleasure as seeing the 2007 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner. I guess I’ll take Jon Hamm. (Please excuse me as I rub my hands together in happy anticipation.)

Here’s the full lineup for Conan‘s premiere week:

  • Monday, Nov. 8 – First Guest Poll winner, Seth Rogen and musical guest Jack White
  • Tuesday, Nov. 9 – Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer and musical guest Soundgarden
  • Wednesday, Nov. 10 – Jon Hamm, Charlyne Yi and musical guest Fistful of Mercy
  • Thursday, Nov. 11 – Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and comedian Jon Dore

Who are you most excited for, PopWatchers? And who’s your DREAM Conan guest?

    I think I’m most excited to see Julie Bowen. I love her looks to the camera on Modern Family, like the one she gave when Luke was slurping his cereal yesterday!

      Joe Buck

      • Seddie forever

        Joe Buck? FAIL

        My dream guests would be Jerry Trainor (this guy is the next great funny man – and should be in the Batman film), musical guest Jennette Mccurdy, and other guest could be Brandon Routh – get his reaction to possibly not being Superman anymore (Conan should be able to relate to losing the dream job)

      • Brian

        Joe Buck has always been a great guest on Conan’s shows.

      • N

        Brian, I agree! I wanted Joe Buck, “buddy boyyyy!”

      • LL

        They may have a good rapport but I’ll always despise Joe Buck for tainting my sport memories with his horrible game-calling on Fox.

      • N

        Better than the guys on TBS who don’t even talk about the game!

    • LOL

      I’m with Coco!

    • Jam is always right

      His first guest should have been Tom Hanks – but on the 2nd day…should have been Will Ferrell..obviously

      • TGH

        agreed. tom hanks should have been first. will ferrell should perform with jack white.

      • sam


      • Dook

        Also agree that Tom Hanks – official popularizer of the “Coco” nickname would’ve been ideal as guest #1…

      Who am I most excited to see? Conan, of course; his guests are completely secondary.

  • Eternal Clementine

    I knew Tom Hanks would be there somewhere, I love all the support he’s given Coco!

    • K

      I actually thought he’d be the first guest. He really started something with the whole “Coco” nickname.

      • martin

        actually, its best that he is not the first guest. isn’t there some bad luck or jinx associated with Hanks being the first guest on a show.

      • Andrew M

        Hanks was the second guest when Conan was on the Tonight Show, so I like this better.

      • martin

        or was that Will Ferrell?

  • Judi

    David Letterman!

    • Kar

      Obviously. That would be so perfect.

      But you know John Stewart and Colbert will drop by at least unannounced

      • Steve

        Will Ferrell, being first guest on coco’s past shows will probably make an unannounced visit

  • Kvinna

    They’re already booked there!
    Jack White and Jon Hamm. Thank you, Coco!

  • Peter

    Soundgarden. White Stripes second. And that’s it for me, really.

  • Mole

    REO Speedwagon NEEDS to be the first guest!

  • mark in nyc

    Oh no, Michael Cera isn’t going to play the part of Michael Cera again is he? He does that on all of his talk show apperances!

    • This Guy

      That’s to balance out the week after Seth Rogan plays the part of Seth Rogan.

  • Lee

    Charlene Yi? Seriously? Can they not get anyone else?

    • jules

      She is a friend of Conan’s, and is absolutely adorable. Leave her alone.

    • LL

      Seriously. All these people make the talk show circuit every 1-3 months anyway. Who cares who’s first?

  • brandy

    Fabio. I still have some of his interviews with Conan from Late Night on VHS. Pure comedy.

  • kelsey

    Yay, Seth Rogen!

  • Horatio

    Get Harrison Ford on there, STAT!

    • tvfan


    • Seddie forever

      meh, I like Harrison Ford, but his interviews are almost never, good, he always seems so disinterested, as if it were a great chore to sit down and talk

      • Rachel

        I saw him once on Conan years ago, when they did the elevator bit, and he was hilarious and a really great sport. Man, I can’t believe how long I’ve been watching Conan. Makes me feel old.

  • Fran V

    Jon Hamm. I’ve seen him 20 times in the past few weeks, but can you really see enough of him?

    • Karate Pants

      No :)

      • Mel

        Not even remotely.

      • Seddie forever

        Yes, and he is absolutely the WRONG choice for Superman – random thought

    • gah

      definately jon hamm. this + saturday night live next weekend might be the last i see of him til next seasons mad men. (i don’t want to see that movie he’s in with vanessa hudgens)

  • Rick

    Seth Rogen?

    • jp


      • Seddie forever


      • Typical Lost Apologist


    • Sarah


  • MelindaB

    Yeah, the guests are secondary to having Conan on TV again.

    • Ryan

      Don’t forget Andy!

  • Sean

    I want to see NORM!!!

    • Janizzle

      Yes! Norm is hilarious!!

      • Laurie

        Yes Norm for the win. I have visions of him being the next poll winner….

    • jj

      Box Office Poison! Norm is talk show gold!
