 NEW YORK (CBS) Conan O'Brien is up to his shenanigans again as he keeps fans guessing about who will the  first guest  on his late-night show, "Conan"  which debuts on TBS tonight at 11 p.m. ET.

After conducting an online poll, in which  he admittedly tallied and manipulated the results, he says it's down to Jack Nicholson, the Sultan of Brunei, and Arlene Wagner, a curator of  the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.

It would be fitting and not surprising if Wagner, who collects nutcrackers from around the world, is chosen to appear on a show with a self-proclaimed nut like O'Brien.

According to Entertainment Weekly,a rep for the show has yet to confirm the booking.

O'Brien  has said he decided to "cut some weight,"  eliminating Justin Bieber, who he says can't perform on a school night, Reo Speedwagon, who he said never really broke up,  and  Lady Gaga whom he expected to  draw in the ASPCA.

Team Coco  supporters have been anxiously waiting at the studio  to score tickets to his show,  while other O'Brien fans are preparing to throw Team Coco-themed parties.

Whether you are rooting for Team Coco or not, chances are you have seen some of the  crazy promotions for the new talk show that include a dancing taco  and O'Brien doing his signature moves without music.

The former "Tonight Show" host has a lot of competition at that hour. - Jon Stewart's popular "The Daily Show" as well as Jay Leno, David Letterman and " Nightline"during his second half hour.
