    I have loved him on The Daily Show and on his own spinoff. But I have no interest in celebrity talk shows (or staying up that late!) so I will miss him.

    It sounds like he's going to bring his own distinctive spin to it, so it may not be a conventional celeb talk show. We'll see...can't wait!

    Oh, let me know, MFW! There's always the DVR if worth watching. I just can't watch endless celebs that I don't care about hawking their latest movie/series/project.

    I've been loving the podcasts and can't wait for the show.

    You and me both, MFW. I'm super excited to have him back on my TV. I've missed him! I have a cousin who's still lamenting the retirement of Letterman and the exit of Craig Ferguson. I get it. I miss Craig a LOT (he's one of my all-time faves), but things change. You've got to roll with it. Neither of those guys is coming back, so there's no sense in continuing to cry about it.....and this is from someone who's watched the opening of Craig's final show at least a dozen times.

    I'm not a fan of creepy Jimmy Fallon, but I do still like Kimmel a lot and I watch James Corden a few times a week. I'm excited to see what Colbert will bring to the table. IRL, he seems like a very sweet, intelligent guy, with a bit of snark.

    I'm planning on doing the DVR for the first week and will go from there. DVR no matter what - I hate commercials. Do enjoy Colbert's though - first the pistachios and then his own show.

    Are Kimmel and Colbert on the same network? They could think up some great stuff together.

    Nope. Kimmel is on ABC and Colbert will be on CBS.

    Stephen Colbert's first guests: George Clooney, Elon Musk, Amy Schumer - Aug. 24, 2015


    When Stephen Colbert returns to television as the new host of CBS's "Late Show" after Labor Day, he'll be joined by a eclectic group of guests, from A-list actors to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.

    George Clooney and Jeb Bush will be Colbert's first guests on September 8.

    And "Late Show" band leader Jon Batiste and his band Stay Human will perform on premiere night.

    Notably, Colbert will also play host to two of the biggest names in the world of tech during the first week.

    SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk will visit the "Late Show" on September 9 and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick will visit on September 10.

    The twin bookings are an instant way for Colbert to differentiate himself from his predecessor David Letterman.

    CBS announced the guest line-up on Monday morning.

    Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer and Stephen King are also on the docket for week #1.

    Colbert's "Late Show" will also have wide-ranging musical acts, with rapper Kendrick Lamar performing as Colbert's first official musical guest on September 9.

    Lamar will be followed by country star Toby Keith on September 10 and the Paul Simon tribute band Troubled Waters on September 11.

    While Colbert has mostly stayed off TV since ending "The Colbert Report" in December, the comedian has sought to stay on the cultural radar.

    He has been creating "Late Show" web videos all summer -- including one that featured him figuring out how to shave his "Colbeard."

    He also appeared on "The Daily Show" for Jon Stewart's last broadcast on August 6.

    "Is there a party or anything? I brought a lot of people from CBS," Colbert said to Stewart before delivering a heartfelt tribute.

    Actually he brought a lot of people from Comedy Central to CBS. Key members of his "Colbert Report" team are producing the new "Late Show".
