After a lovely week off, The Late Show staff came back to the Ed Sullivan Theater—only to learn that we were shut out of the Genius Grants. Again.

Instead of taking another week off to recover (we considered it), we've decided to improve our odds for next year by packing our guest lineup with geniuses:

Monday, Oct. 23: actress Anna Faris, from the CBS comedy Mom; comedian Amy Sedaris; musical performance by Tyminski

Tuesday, Oct. 24: journalist Jake Tapper; actor Shemar Moore, from the new CBS drama S.W.A.T.; musical performance by Khalid

Wednesday, Oct. 25: actor Hugh Laurie; news anchor Gretchen Carlson; Former Mythbuster Adam Savage; YouTube personality Michael Stevens

Thursday, Oct. 26: actress Julianne Moore; actor Jermaine Fowler, from the CBS comedy Superior Donuts; musical performance by Fleet Foxes

Friday, Oct. 27: Dr. Phil McGraw, executive producer of the CBS drama Bull; astronaut Captain Scott Kelly
