First Conan O’Brien Guest Might Be Voted Onto The Show By Twitter Fans

Conan O'Brien BlimpConan O’Brien will return to TBS on November 8 and now a social campaign is under way which let’s fans vote for who they believe should be the hosts first guest on his new show.

Okay so you can’t choose just any guest, there are twelve choices, such as Lady GaGa and Tom from Myspace and some of those choices are probably not going to happen, such as Pope Benedict. Visitors to the voting site choose their favorite, then push their vote out to Twitter with the #ConansFirstGuest hashtag.

Users will also notice a leaderboard, which shows the guest most likely to appear on the show.

Team CoCo however do warn fans on their site that the “winner” may not show up, since they have no guaranteed way to make the winner appear.

“None of these people have actually been booked on our show … We’re kind of hoping that, if someone on this poll starts getting a lot of votes, these folks will actually feel a bit guilty and will agree to be our first guest.”

Conan O'Brien Voting System

My one request, please for my own sanity, don’t vote for Justin Bieber, I’d much rather see the show off to a good start and not be a pop cultural footprint talking point.

If nothing else, at least some people get to see the giant orange Conan Blimp flying around their cities.

Visit Team Coco to vote!
