I'm sure Norm MacDonald is one of them.

I don't think this guy has been funny for 15 or more years, so maybe it's time.

Will Ferrell will show up at some point. He and Conan are pretty good friends IIRC.

His podcast is pretty good.  I honestly thought he was doing that in lieu of the show.

Don't know about Will, but Paul Rudd will definitely show up somewhere.  Betting on Norm and Paul for sure

His podcast is really good and he's burned out on the old style late night format. This is a good switch for him.

Ugh. What a waste of one of the limited final spots.

Jack Black is an odd one for the last show, but then again this half hour version has been pretty odd.
I like Bill Burr's bit on there last week. I can't sit through his specials, but Conan has just enough moderating influence to keep him funny without going crazy.

I'm glad Hader is on there, he's one of Conan's best guests and it's clear they're buds or something

Wasn't he banned from the show after defending Louis C.K. and Roseanne?

The final guest will be Jay Leno.

I'm hoping for Tom Hanks.  He was a big pusher for Team CoCo at the beginning of it.

It wouldn't shock me since Norm hasn't been on Conan's podcast, and Norm has been sliding into Adam Carolla territory for a few years now. But I don't know if it's an official thing or anything

Mugato: He still had a show?


Not much of one.

I hate what TBS did to Conan. He had an hour long show for over 20 years, and then TBS comes along and cuts the time in half, they made him get rid of his band, and they changed the format so his set and interviews looked like the farking Ellen show.

Conan was at his best when he had an hour to work with, he could use the band in his sketches, and for that matter, actually HAD sketches. They completely ruined all of that. I suspect they started wanting to butcher his budget when he started doing those travel shows. Which were hilarious by the way. I wish he had been able to do more.

But TBS can go fark themselves.

Yeah, his podcast is going strong and he's apparently going to do something on HBO after this, so this is just goodbye to being on TBS. A channel no one watches.

In the last 2 or 3 years he went from something pretty good to have on in the background to making me laugh harder than most comedians. He didn't change much, i just paid more attention

Are you claiming Conan is a big lying liar who lied, since he put those changes out to the world as HIS idea?

You are genuinely confusing me here.

I don't think those things were his idea at all. I don't know where you got that information from. If you go back and you watch the last episode he did where he had the full band with him, he looked super bummed that he was losing those guys. You could tell he was genuinely upset about it. I'm thinking a studio accountant came down and told him his show was too expensive. But he was likely still under contract, so they chose to honor it, and just cut his budget.

Those half hour episodes sucked. The tone was totally different. I only watched a couple before I gave up.

Well I'll be... If it really was his idea, and according to this it seems like it was, it was a dumb idea. I get why he did it. But he ruined his own show. That's a shame.

I want the last clip of the last show being Conan riding down a hill on a wheelchair into a lake with a fade to black over somber music

One possibility.  It could also be Conan playing old-timey baseball. Conan said about that skit:

"I've told the staff, 'When I leave this earth, at the funeral, just show this because this pretty much says what I'm all about.'"

My favourite instance of that gag was when either a young (early 20's?) actress or a sport figure came on Conan and showed that clip instead of her actual footage. The audience went nuts and Conan had that "I can't believe I got Mac-rolled again" look on his face. The guest apologized and said she only did it because she was such a big Paul Rudd fan.

I'd be up for that.

Not LITERALLY.  I'd need HoBot 5000 for that.
