The much-anticipated first episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert is just around the corner. You know you can at least expect George Clooney and Kendrick Lamar — but who else? CBS wants to put your high-stress curiosity needs at ease and has announced the full lineup for Colbert’s premiere week; thankfully, it’s a healthy mix of representatives from the realms of politics, music, film, TV, comedy, books, business, and science. (So we’ll probably learn something and have fun, and how great is that?) No word yet whether Mitt Romney will get his pancakes or not, but you’ll at least get to see ScarJo, Amy Schumer, and Toby Keith, among others. That’s good, right? Right!

Here’s the roster:

September 8 

  • George Clooney
  • Jeb Bush
  • Performance: Jon Batiste and Stay Human (plus “special guests”)

September 9

  • Scarlett Johansson
  • Elon Musk
  • Interview/performance: Kendrick Lamar

September 10  

  • Uber CEO Travis Kalanick
  • Performance: Toby Keith

September 11

  • Amy Schumer
  • Stephen King
  • Interview/performance: Troubled Waters

Solid. That first date is a Tuesday (11:35 p.m. ET/PT) — mark your calendars, set your alarms. Colbert is close.
