Seems to be only for people on Twitter, but the potential guest list is eclectic and brilliant.

For me it came down to Vladimir Putin and the cast of Fat Albert (although Thomas Pynchon was a dark horse). In the end, @BackoftheHead voted for Fat Albert. Hey hey hey.

Seems like Jack Nicholson is gonna win, which will beg the question: What if Jack wins and refuses? Is the first runner up (likely Lady Gaga) the consolation prize?

Conan O'Brien announces house band for new show
by Archana Ram
Categories: Music, News, TV Biz

Following news that Max Weinberg would not be joining Conan O’Brien for his new TBS show, the late-night host announced that his new in-house music will be performed by The Basic Cable Band, led by guitarist Jimmy Vivino, who worked with O’Brien on The Tonight Show and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. The band also includes other familiar faces: Scott Healy (keyboards), Mike Merritt (bass), Mark Pender (trumpet), Richie “LaBamba” Rosenberg (trombone), James Wormworth (drums), as well as Jerry Vivino (saxophone, woodwinds and vocals). O’Brien’s self-titled late night show debuts Nov. 8.

Like there's any doubt. @RickardMorin voted for His Holiness BXVI.

Sing this special song. It's just for you.
I'm going to go with Ross Perot if he agrees after changing his mind a couple times.

EDIT~! I just saw the actual options and I voted for Thomas Pynchon. Hopefully he brings his paper bag and sandwich board.

My vote went to Tom from MySpace.

Would be fun to watch Conan constantly throw Facebook into his face during the whole interview.

I went with someone he could actually get & be entertaining, so the cast of the Fat Albert movie got mine.

Kevin's right though, Tom from MySpace might've been a better choice. Jokes about a MySpace movie including them making up a trailer...comedy gold.

Now that you mention him, I'm surprised he wasn't the run-away winner. He did come up with "CoCo," after all.

That second show is LOADED. Tom Hanks + Conan = Muse See TV.

I voted for MySpace Tom as well. I've always wanted to know how he feels about being driven into obsolescence.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Will was his first guest on Late Night & Tonight Show (and last guest ever on Tonight), right? Wonder if he was unable to appear- you think he would've been asked...although he could be one of the surprises.

I would assume he's going to be the actual first guest.

I agree, there's a lot of potential shown in the pilot, but the drama/mystery elements felt a bit forced ... Shows like "Lost" (just got started on the second season, BTW)
