Stephen Colbert is starting up as the new host for The Late Show with pretty big expectations behind him. He’s got not only the legacy of his predecessor, David Letterman, to live up to, but he’s also got all of his fans from The Colbert Report to keep happy. If this guest list is any indication, he’s off to a pretty good start. Check out the list he’s got for his first week. It’s nice to see that he isn’t just aiming at actors. He’s got some politicians and entrepreneurs lined up too, like Jeb Bush and Elon Musk.
