Jack White, Soundgarden to launch Conan O’Brien’s TBS show

Things are in full gear at Team Coco these days, as Conan O’Brien gets set to launch his new show on TBS November 8.

Jack White and Soundgarden are among the guests, announced today, who will appear on Conan’s first week of shows.

White and O’Brien have been friends for many years, and the two worked together to release Conan’s new music in 2010 on White’s Third Man Records.

The man responsible for giving O’Brien the nickname “Coco” - Tom Hanks - will appear on the second TBS broadcast.

As for the series’ first guest, Conan is running a poll at Team Coco to have fans select someone for that honor: Jack Nicholson is currently leading the votes, ahead of Lady Gaga, The Full Cast of the 2004 live-action “Fat Albert” movie, and Pope Benedict XVI, among others.

Here’s the first week's lineup:

• Monday, Nov. 8 – First Guest Poll winner, Seth Rogen and Jack White
• Tuesday, Nov. 9 – Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer and Soundgarden
• Wednesday, Nov. 10 – Jon Hamm, Charlyne Yi and Fistful of Mercy
• Thursday, Nov. 11 – Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and comedian Jon Dore
