Conan's New Show Debuts Tonight With Woman From Leavenworth As His First Guest

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - When Conan O'Brien makes his return to late night tonight his first guest will be from Leavenworth, Washington. Her name is Arlene Wagner. She's the curator of the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.

Wagner said she would love to be able to give Conan an Irish nutcracker from her collection of more than 6,000 pieces dating back to the 16th century.

Also on the show tonight will be "Glee's" Lea Michele, actor Seth Rogan and musical guest Jack White!

O'Brien's former band leader Max Weinberg will not join him in his move to Conan. Jimmy Vivino, a guitarist and vocalist in the original band, will lead the "Basic Cable Band" on the new show.

O'Brien has been off the air since January when NBC announced Jay Leno would return as host of the Tonight Show.
