The premier of the new “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” is less than a week away, and Colbert’s got an interesting week of guests ahead, including presidential candidates, actresses and CEOs.

The former “Daily Show” correspondent got his hosting start on his successful spin-off, “The Colbert Report.” The parody show debuted in 2005 and ended in December, 2014.

Colbert replaces Dave Letterman, who signed off of the “Late Show” in May, 2015, after debuting the talk show in 1993, according to Letterman’s biography on the show’s website. 

Take a look at Colbert’s first week of guests in our slideshow:
