It’s been announced George Clooney will be the first guest on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert when it premieres on Tuesday 8th September.
George Clooney was one of David Letterman’s final guests in the run-up to his Late Show finale, so this seems like a fitting way to start Colbert’s tenure on the programme.
Work on the Ed Sullivan Theater renovations is almost complete – the new marquee is now up complete with working lights at night time and the interior has been completely restored, including the return of the famous dome inside the theatre and the return of the traditional stained glass windows.
Test shows are also taking place before the September premiere to gauge audience opinion before getting Stephen is let loose on CBS.
