Coming soon: the triumphant return of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report"

Yes, it's been a long, long, long three weeks without Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, but the drought ends Monday. Here's a look at what's in store when they finally return from vacation:

"The Daily Show":
Mo 9/14: LeBron James
Tu 9/15: Matt Damon
We 9/16: Ricky Gervais
Th 9/17: TBA

If nothing else, the 6'8" James, who is promoting his autobiography Shooting Stars, will produce an amusing visual contrast next to Stewart, who is a foot shorter than the NBA superstar.

"The Colbert Report":
Mo 9/14: Cory Booker (the mayor of Newark, NJ)
Tu 9/15: Christiane Amanpour
We 9/16: The Flaming Lips
Th 9/17: Frank Bruni
