Megyn Kelly Joins ‘The Late Show’ for Post-Super Bowl Episode, James Corden Announces Guests

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly will visit “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Super Bowl Sunday, CBS announced Monday.

Kelly joins previously announced guests including Tina Fey and Margot Robbie, promoting their upcoming film “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” Will Ferrell from “Zoolander 2,” and comedy duo Key & Peele, starring together in “Keanu.”

Colbert’s “Late Show” is the first late night series to air in the coveted post-Super Bowl slot; in recent years, scripted shows like NBC’s “The Blacklist,” Fox’s “New Girl” and CBS’ “Elementary” have all benefited from the big game boost.

Kelly has become a central figure in the 2016 presidential campaign, often sparring with Republican candidate Donald Trump. Trump’s decision to pull out of the most recent GOP debate, hosted by Fox News, was precipitated in part by Kelly’s presence as a moderator, with Trump claiming in an Instagram video, “Megyn Kelly’s really biased against me. She knows that. I know that. Everybody knows that. Do you really think she can be fair at a debate?”

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” is scheduled to air on CBS immediately following Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, Feb. 7 at approximately 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, depending on post-game coverage.

Following Colbert’s show, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” will welcome Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine for its own special post-Super Bowl broadcast on Sunday night. Musician Elton John will also join Corden for an installment of his signature Carpool Karaoke series.

The episode will also include recreations of classic Super Bowl commercials, a tailgate party outside of the studio and the first-ever “Baby Bowl.”
