With the loss of Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, Comedy Central is certainly going through a late night transformation. And while Stewart is, believe it or not, now wrestling in the WWE, Colbert will be taking over David Letterman’s old Late Show spot on CBS come September.

Given the cult like following Colbert has amassed in the last few years, it’s going to be extremely interesting to see how he fares against the likes of Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon. With the show’s first episode set to air on September 8, CBS today released the full slate of guests set to appear on the show during its first week in production.

While the guest list includes the expected smattering of politicians and movie stars — Jeb Bush and Scarlett Johansson being two such examples — there will also be a pair of tech celebrities making an appearance. According to the released schedule, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk will join Colbert on September 9. One day later, Colbert will be joined by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick.

The confirmed lineup reads as follows.

Tuesday, Sept. 8
Actor George Clooney; Republican Presidential candidate Jeb Bush; musical performance by Jon Batiste and Stay Human with special guests

Wednesday, Sept. 9
Actress Scarlett Johansson; SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk; interview with and musical performance by Kendrick Lamar

Thursday, Sept. 10
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick; musical performance by Toby Keith

Friday, Sept. 11
Comedian Amy Schumer; author Stephen King; interview with and musical performance by Troubled Waters

CBS also added that there may be a few special guests on tap as well.
