Beto O'Rourke may have made his daytime TV debut last week, but this week he's going to late night.

In a press release from CBS, U.S. Rep. O'Rourke will appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday, September 12. Host Stephen Colbert is known to rag on the Trump administration and most Republicans, so we're sure he's got a lot in store in his interview with Ted Cruz's challenger.

O'Rourke's Late Show appearance will come exactly a week after he visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The daytime TV host caught wind of O'Rourke after a video of his comments on NFL kneeling protests went viral.
