As viewers begin to get a read on Trevor Noah in advance of the comedian's debut as new host of "The Daily Show" on Monday, they can at least get some clues from his starting lineup of guests.

Comedy Central has announced the first week's roster, and it's a varied one with celebrities, a politician and a CEO.

First up is comedian Kevin Hart, followed Tuesday by Bumble founder and CEO Whitney Wolfe. New Jersey governor and Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie will make his way to the midtown "Daily Show" studio on Sept. 30, and singer Ryan Adams will perform Oct. 1.

How the South African native will approach those interviews remains to be seen, but Noah seems focused on making it his own and not a mere redo of what Jon Stewart evolved it to be over his 16-year tenure.

As Noah reflected on Stewart's advice to, "Make your show. Make your best version of it," in a New York Times interview published Wednesday, the new host said, "I apply those teachings of Jon's to everything that I'm doing."
