Team Coco, unite! Yes, tonight—at 11:00 PM ET on TBS—Conan O'Brien returns to the small screen with the premiere episode of Conan. Your open discussion thread, plus some things to look out for as the show airs, inside.
While you wait for the episode to begin, feel free to chat in the comments below. Also as you wait, consider the following (both pre-show and during the hour)...
Will It Be More Raunchy?
Because Conan is on cable, O'Brien has more liberty when it comes to dirty words and things of the like. Will he keep things at the same level of raunchiness as his previous shows, or up it with his newfound liberty?
Will We See the Masturbating Bear?
Speaking of being raunchy... will O'Brien be brining his famed Masturbating Bear character to Conan? He recently told Rolling Stone that he "won't be denied" use of the famous scratcher, despite NBC threats to sue if he uses it. What will happen tonight?
Who Will the Mystery Guest Be?
O'Brien held an online poll with 12 choices so that diehard fans can choose his first guest, but—even though TMZ has its guess (don't click if you don't want to possibly be spoiled)—nobody really knows who it'll be. Feel free to speculate below!
What About Jay Leno and NBC?
Technically, O'Brien's "You may not speak of Jay Leno or NBC!" embargo is up. So, will he let fists fly tonight and poke fun at his predecessor-cum-successor and the network that screwed him, or will he leave it in the past?
Perhaps most importantly... will O'Brien keep the beard that he's been rockin' since he entered his unemployed phase, or will he clean up for the big event?
If you haven't participated in one of our open threads before, don't fret-it's easy! All you need to do is tune your TV to TBS, watch the show, and discuss all the action with everyone else in the comments. It's really as simple as that. If you don't have a commenter account, just sign up for one (it literally takes seconds) and we'll get you approved and in on the action right away.
Oh, one last thing: for everything Conan-related at Gawker.TV, click here.
We'll see you in the comments!
P.S. — I forgot to let you guys know who tonight's (confirmed) guests are—sorry! We have Seth Rogen, Lea Michele, and Jack White.
