(Newser) – Some of Trevor Noah's first guests as host of the Daily Show will combine much of what the show focused on under the reign of Jon Stewart: comedy and politics. Comedian-actor Kevin Hart will appear on the show's premiere on Monday, followed by GOP presidential contender and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday, reports Deadline. Rounding out the week will be Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe on Tuesday and musician Ryan Adams a week from today on Oct. 1.

The guestlist suggests the show will stick to "a fundamental interest in politics and popular culture," notes the New York Times. Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly points out that Noah, like Stephen Colbert, made sure to include celebs, politicians, and industry execs in his first week. Noah was actually among Colbert's guests last week, and though his bit on the Republican debate wasn't the best, according to the Daily Beast, perhaps he's "saving his primo material for his Monday night debut."
