Following up on Stephen Colbert's big Late Show premiere with Jeb Bush, the host has booked two other Republican hopefuls to appear this month: Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who will appear on Monday, Sept. 21 and Tuesday, Sept. 22, respectively.
Colbert got a little heat for not asking Bush any tough questions. Hopefully The Donald will warrant more digging. The other guest that night will be the U.S. Secretary of Energy. We can only hope they'll run a live feed of that awkward green room conversation.
Although Trump wasn't present for Colbert's big premiere on Tuesday, he wasn't forgotten. Colbert worked off nine months of pent-up Trump jokes in a five-minute bit that compared reporting on the real estate mogul's presidential aspirations to the uncontrollable, unstoppable urge to eat Oreos. (So bad for you but oh, so delicious!)
Trump never appeared in person on Colbert's leftist political comedy show The Colbert Report, though his presence was certainly felt there. For instance, in this 2008 installment of the "Difference Makers" segment, Trump pulled a classic Trump and refused to remove an unpermitted flagpole from his golf course — then admitted he didn't know what the 13 stripes on Old Glory even represented.
Trump is making the late-night rounds: He'll be on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday.
Here's the full guest lineup for the third week of the Late Show:
Monday, Sept. 21: Steph Curry, Sen. Ted Cruz
Tuesday, Sept. 22: Donald Trump, U.S. Sec. of Energy Ernest Moniz
The Late Show is on weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on CBS. (Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by CBS.)
