It’s not such an uncommon thing, these days, to ask the masses what you should do. However, when someone who has an Internet cult following as strong as Conan does lays his show on the line, that’s something of a big deal.

So far, the TeamCoco poll is showing a commanding lead to Jack Nicholson, but Lady Gaga, Pope Benedict and a few others still have a good shot. The first show is still 20 days away, slated for November 8th, but voting will obviously be closed before then.

What else do we find cool about it? The design was done by our friends over at JESS3, whose work we’ve featured more than a few times here on TNW. So first, have a look at the TeamCoco page, and then head to the site to cast your votes.
