Conan O'Brien's Last Guests on 'Tonight Show' Announced


Conan O'Brien's Last Guests on 'Tonight Show' Announced


Tom Hanks and Will Ferrell will witness the last day of Conan as the host of 'The Tonight Show' after only five months on air.

The last few celebrities who will be part of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" short history are unveiled. Guests in the last four days of the talk show before its time slot is taken back by Jay Leno and his show, include Joss Stone and Tom Hanks.

Released on Tuesday, January 19 morning are the names of A-list stars who will visit starting that night to Friday, January 22. "Inglourious Basterds" director Quentin Tarantino will talk about the recent win at Golden Globes in the January 19 episode that also invites Paul Bettany and musical guest Spoon.

On Wednesday, January 20, Adam Sandler and Joel McHale will sit for an interview while Joss Stone is set to sing. The next day Robin Williams becomes the sole interviewed guest while Barry Manilow will entertain the audience with his performance. As the last day treat, Conan O'Brien goes big by having Tom Hanks and Will Ferrell.

NBC still has not announced when Leno will take over the 11.35 P.M. slot but he will finish his prime-time show on February 11.

Meanwhile, O'Brien is still fighting for "The Tonight Show" departure from 11.35 P.M. by demanding NBC to compensate the staff members who will lose their jobs when the show goes off air. Out of 190 people working in the show, 60 to 70 followed the host to L.A. last year when O'Brien was appointed as the successor of Leno. In this case, NBC is expected to pay between $40 to $50 million including $30 million to O'Brien.

In a statement, NBC said, "It was Conan's decision to leave NBC that resulted in nearly 200 of his staffers being out of work. We have already agreed to pay millions of dollars to compensate every one of them. This latest posturing is nothing more than a PR ploy." O'Brien's manager Gavin Polone denied this, saying O'Brien's priority is the welfare of his employees.
