Set your DVRs: CBS’ unveiling of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert is going to run long Tuesday night. Expect it to run to 12:44 AM ET, the network advised today. That will give Colbert plenty of time to ask GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush if he wishes he’d first run by Colbert his campaign’s contest to win a ticket to the premiere; Colbert on Wednesday jabbed him via video for setting up the raffle and announced one of his own.
Also guesting that night is George Clooney. Colbert also will introduce bandleader Jon Batiste with his band Stay Human and special guests. Hence the overrun.
The supersized Late Show will delay the start of that night’s Late Late Show With James Corden, with guests Bradley Cooper, Jake McDorman, Andrew Garfield and music guest Wiz Khalifa featuring Fall Out Boy.
