Tina Fey and Margot Robbie from the upcoming film “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” Will Ferrell from “Zoolander 2,” and comedy duo Key & Peele, who star together in “Keanu,” will join Colbert as his guests during the live broadcast from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City.

Digitally, “The Late Show” has seen a quadruple-digit percentage increase in full episode streams on CBS.com and CBS apps, and has garnered nearly 38 million social impressions since its premiere, according to Nielsen Social.
