How fast time flies. After over a year of talking about it, the all-new The Arsenio Hall Show debuts nationwide, less than a week from today, on MondaySeptember 9 at 11pm here on the east coast (check local listings), on CBS.

Ahead of its debut, the network has revealed the new show's first week lineup of guests today, via press release.

"My first week of guests offers a taste of pop culture and represents the mix of talent I hope to have on my show every week," Hall said. "I am honored to welcome friends - both old and new - to my show. My goal is to have fun, make people laugh, and send viewers to bed with a smile on their face."

The premiere week schedule follows:

· Monday, Sept. 9: Chris Tucker.

· Tuesday, Sept. 10: Ice Cube, Lisa Kudrow and musical guest, rapper Mac Miller.

· Wednesday, Sept. 11: Magic Johnson, George Lopez, and musical guest, rapper Nas.

· Thursday, Sept. 12: Actor Mark Harmon from NCIS, magicians Penn & Teller, and musical guest, Earth, Wind, & Fire.

· Friday, Sept. 13: Angela Bassett and Simon Cowell's "X Factor" group, Emblem3 as musical guests. I'd assume Cowell will be there as well, if only to introduce the group.

But that's not all. Expect a number of surprise guests throughout premiere week, although no hints as to whom they might be.

Looking past premiere week, guests booked for the rest of the month of September include: Kendrick Lamar, Nick Cannon, Dr. PhilPaula Patton, Melissa Leo, Djimon Hounsou, Seth Green, Giovanni Ribisi, Allison Janney, Anson Mount, Russell Simmons, 2 Chainz, Louie Anderson, Orlando Jones and many others.

The show is produced by Eye Productions Inc., in association with Arsenio Hall Communications Ltd. and Octagon Entertainment Productions, and distributed by CBS Television Distribution

I'm actually looking forward to this! Let's see how it goes...

    If he continues to have a wide enough scope to bring in Earth, Wind & Fire and Kendrick Lamar, it'll be a landmark show to me, there are not too many things successfully connecting the whole sweep like that anymore, on a regular basis,

    Apparently Arsenio thinks its still the 90s.

    I'm referring mostly to the first week guests. Chris Tucker hasn't had a project to promote in years (Silver Lining Playbook notwithstanding) and he's likely to spend the hour doing the same tired Michael Jackson jokes he's been doing since the 90s. The rest of the first week guests don't exactly move the needled. It's his first week back and I would think he would bring out big(ger) guns. I want the show to succeed and I do plan on watching, but the first week's guest don't move me.

    I don't know what you mean. I see names up there of people who are still relevant, plus there's Kendrick Lamar, Paula Patton, Nick Cannon, Melissa Leo. Who do you want him to book? Miley Cyrus? I like the mixture of the old with the new.
