We already know Piers Morgan's first guest for the Jan. 17 debut of his new CNN show: Oprah.

Now CNN has announced the rest of Morgan's guests for his first week. First up after Oprah: Howard Stern:

• Tuesday, January 18: Howard Stern

• Wednesday, Jan. 19: Condoleezza Rice

• Thursday, Jan. 20: Ricky Gervais

• Friday, Jan. 21: George Clooney and his father Nick Clooney

According to CNN, Oprah called the already-taped interview "one of the toughest interviews I've had in 20 years" — and that says a lot, considering Oprah's "I'm not a lesbian" breakdown during her recent interview with Barbara Walters.

The network also announced some more of Morgan's upcoming guests: Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Kid Rock, Rod Stewart, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Donald and Melania Trump.
