TV Bulletin Board (Thurs., Oct. 21) -- Conan's 1st week guests are in the books (except for the one you pick)
By ED BARK
The guest list is pretty much set for the first week of TBS' Conan. Except for the one selected by fans to be the first guest on opening night, Nov. 8th.
The 12 available choices range from Pope Benedict XVI (a likely no-show) to Lady Gaga (perhaps) to Jack Nicholson (who so far is leading the voting). Go here if you care enough to join in.
Otherwise here's the announced lineup:
Nov. 8th -- Seth Rogen, Jack White
Nov. 9th -- Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer, Soundgarden
Nov. 10th -- Jon Hamm, Charlyne Yi, Fistful of Mercy
Nov. 11th -- Michael Cera, Julie Bowen, Jon Dore
As previously announced, the new house band is Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band. Also, it's beginning to look a lot like host Conan O'Brien is going to keep the beard.
