Stephen Colbert is taking his show live again for political reasons.

After broadcasting without a net for the two weeks of the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention last month, The Late Show will air live on Monday, Sept. 26 at 11:35 pm ET (delayed on the West Coast) after the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 11:35 pm ET following the vice presidential debate between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, and on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 11:35 pm ET after another presidential debate. CBS announced the news on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.

Like he did with the RNC and DNC, Colbert will host these post-debate show from his home base: the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York. The guest list has yet to be determined.
