Mr. Colbert, who similarly drew from a wide range of influences when he hosted “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, had previously announced that the guests on his debut broadcast of “The Late Show” on Sept. 8 would be George Clooney and Jeb Bush. That episode will also include a performance by Mr. Colbert’s bandleader, Jon Batiste, and his group, Stay Human, as well as some undisclosed “special guests.”
CBS added to that lineup on Monday, announcing that Mr. Colbert’s Sept. 9 show will feature the actress Scarlett Johansson; Elon Musk, the chief executive of Tesla Motors and SpaceX; and the rapper Kendrick Lamar. The guests on Sept. 10 will be Travis Kalanick, the chief executive of Uber, and the country singer Toby Keith; and Sept. 11 will include the comedian Amy Schumer, the author Stephen King and a Paul Simon tribute band called Troubled Waters.
