Robin Williams, Bill Maher, Ellen Page, Shooter Jennings and cast members from “Young Frankenstein” are among the guests David Letterman will have this week when his first original segs in more than two months air on CBS, starting Wednesday. (Note the parenthetical emphasis that these are NEW, ORIGINAL broadcasts at long last. Usually those block letters denote repeats and original airdates.)
