Do you think Al will be showing one of the music videos on Conan? We know he's debuting one on The View. Maybe he's actually doing eight straight days of TV interviews, and each video will premier on a different show.

Call me a cynic, but there's no way in hell Al would be able to orchestrate something like that.

I watch Conan a lot. I've never seen him show a premier of a music video on his show ever. So, I don't think it's likely. And as much as I'd like your hypothesis to be true, I don't think that's likely either.

My hope is that he'll have the lead interview segment and then perform a song from the album at the end of the show. Probably one of the originals or the polka.

And hopefully along with CoCo, he'll get booked on Fallon and Kimmel.

The page says Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are also going to be on, probably promoting their movie "Sex Tape" together, which will probably be the main interview, and some guy named Matt Walsh. Al is more important than whoever that is, so maybe he can be the other interview after either debuting a new video or performing one of the new songs.

I don't see why a new video can't debut on Conan just because he's never done that sort of thing in the past! Conan never had someone sing made-up lyrics to his show's theme song before Al did either. They're good friends, Al and Conan, so I can see it happening.

If there's a performance it will be the last thing in the show. I'd guess that if CoCo already has three guests, then Al might just be the musical guest and be at the end of the show, and possibly in a comedy bit with Conan at the beginning of the show.

Precedent. Conan's not going to spend time on his show showing a music video that we can watch on YouTube. He might show a clip, but that's it.

The good news is, if those other guests are already booked, it almost guarantees that Al will be the musical guest!!

As much as I'd like to see Conan conduct an actual interview w/Al (he is quite the talented and engaging interviewer after all) I can't wait to see what song he will perform!

Jim still has a concert for Gilroy, CA scheduled for this date in his latest newsletter. So, if Al is performing on this show, Jim either doesn't know or Al is doing it without him. My guess would be he's doing some segment on Conan, but not performing.
