It's "Nutcracker Lady" Arlene Wagner!

1105_conan_reveal

Sources connected to the production tell us Wagner -- who opened the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum in Washington back in 1995 with her husband -- was picked to be the first guest on "Conan" ... and will be flying to L.A. on Saturday.

Wagner was one of twelve people named in Conan's first guest online poll -- which included big names like Jack Nicholson, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Pope Benedict XIV.

His first show is gonna be nuts.

This is the best Conan can do? Everyone else must have said no. I wish Conan luck but have my doubts his throngs of fans will tune into this new show any more than they did his last one.

Hate to say this but Conan's ratings were lower than Jay's from day one. That's why NBC (not Leno) got rid of him. His fans profess to love him but don't seem to watch his show. Help the guy out and watch him on this one.

Who cares. Conan is just not funny. He seems to be a nice enough guy, but he's not funny. His ratings were very low on NBC and I see no reason why his ratings will be different at another network.

LOL, Lame! He had all this time to line up a great first guest, and he allowed himself to have ... who the hell is she again?? I was thinking of tuning in to see his new show, but if he's gonna just go "thru the motions" (again) then I'm not even tuning in...

Lol you people are too slow to see why he's bringing on Arlene Wagner first. It's called originality and confidence. Conan knows he doesn't need any big name celeb to boost his first episode. Just like Dave Chappelle said, "I'm funnier than a dress".
