Three weeks in, Stephen Colbert promises to continue to keep it interesting, or eccentric:  He's booked as guests a major New York developer (who's also running for president) and a Nobel laureate. 

Oh, also Pearl Jam and the U.S. Energy secretary.

As Johnny might say, "Wild!"

Here's the list and -- of this fascinating parade of guests -- make what you will. But Colbert is conspicuously, emphatically doing something no host has done on the network late-night shows in many years: book notables who are not strictly in the business of selling their movies.

Here's the line-up.
