New York City, NY – A new era in late-night television begins tonight on CBS. Stephen Colbert makes his debut on The Late Show in the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway.

George Clooney will be among the first guests tonight. “He’s not only a gifted actor and director ­- and I don’t even have to say that, because he already said he’ll do the show – but he works hard about things he cares about to make the world a better place,” Colbert says about Clooney. “And that’s a very interesting thing to be able to talk about in an honest way with somebody.”

Republican Presidential Candidate Jeb Bush will also appear in tonight’s premier.

Millions are expected to tune in to tonight’s big premier.
