This is an update of a post from last week, but the promotional tsunami has finally almost reached the beach.  Conan premieres tonight, Monday November 8 at 11pm on TBS.

Here's your chance to throw down your guess for Conan's first week's ratings.

Some background for your guesses:

A chart of Conan O'Brien Tonight Show ratings & Letterman Late Show ratings from 2009 through early 2010.

SELECTED CABLE RESULTS, WEEK OF OCTOBER 25-29:

NATIONAL ADULT 18-49 rating

Comedy Central, 11-11:30 p.m. ET, “The Daily Show,” 0.8

Comedy Central, 11:30 p.m.-midnight ET, “The Colbert Report,” 0.6

Adult Swim, 11:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. ET, 0.9

Adult Swim, 12:30-1:30 a.m. ET, 0.6

Dylan Stableford at The Wrap notes that it's really Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, and not Leno or Letterman that is Conan's real competition.

Lots more Late Night ratings data.

So that we're all guessing at the same thing, let's make the poll guesses Conan's first week average adults 18-49 rating. Of course, feel free to add your guess for his future ratings in the comments section.

I'll go with a 1.2 rating average for what is a farily stab in the dark wild guess.

What do you think?
