Conan’s final guest list

NBC has finally filled in the guest list blanks for the balance of (what we assume is) Conan’s final week:

Tuesday: Quentin Tarantino, Paul Bettany, Spoon
Wednesday: Adam Sandler, Joel McHale, Joss Stone
Thursday: Robin Williams, Barry Manilow
Friday: Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell

Not too many surprises here, especially considering Conan’s announcement last night of Sandler, Hanks, and Ferrell. The shift of Manilow to Thursday is no shock, as he’s not an ideal final guest, and cancelling him altogether. Although with comedy nerds making up the bulk of Team Conan, my eyebrow is raised slightly over Robin Williams. He’s a ratings-grabber, though, so we’ll chalk it up to that.
