by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 14th 2011 3:46AM
Barbara Walters, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Barbara Walters joined David Letterman on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on CBS) to discuss her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2011." Letterman mused that he was surprised the Syrian president wasn't on the list, but Donald Trump was.

"Whatever you think of him, the man is fascinating," Walters said. "The day after someone else is elected, Donald Trump is still going to be saying that he's the candidate."

When she asked if he liked the Kardashians, another curious entry, Letterman stammered for a while and finally said, "I'm gonna do you a favor. I'm taking them off the list." Her segment with the Kardashians should be interesting, as Walters interviewed them back in September.

"On the other hand, a way to look at it is a lovely thing for mankind," David Letterman said.

'Two and a Half Men' - 'One False Move, Zimbabwe!'As the revamped 'Two and a Half Men' (Mon., 9PM ET on CBS) continues to roll forward, there was no forward movement on the Bridget front. Last seen jumping over the balcony with Charlie's ex Rose, whatever schemes she's up to will have to wait until another day.

For now, Walden's courtship of Zoe continues, as does the continued unveiling of his past. It's clear that Chuck Lorre and company are still having fun with the evolution of the new 'Two and a Half Men' as they did revamping the series in the first place.

With the introduction of his scientist mother came the revelation that Walden's imaginary childhood friend the gorilla was much more than that. His mother coordinated his birth to match the gorilla's, and then raised them together for four years.

To make up for it, Caroline ultimately did sell all of her rings to buy Max's dream oven, which cracked that shell a little more. Max admitted to wanting to and then did hug Caroline.

President Barack Obama, '60 Minutes'President Barack Obama sat down with Steve Kroft on '60 Minutes' (Sun., 7PM ET on CBS), where he was asked about the government's handling of the current financial situation. Kroft said that 42 percent of Americans believe Obama's policies favor Wall Street, while only 35 percent said they favor average citizens.

While Obama said that he couldn't talk specifics in regards to the lack of prosecutions on Wall Street, as that's controlled by the Justice Department, he did offer one key observation.

"I can tell you ... some of the least ethical behavior on Wall Street, was indeed legal," Obama said. "That's exactly why we had to change the laws. And that's why we've put in place the toughest financial reform package since FDR and the Great Depression."

Pierce Brosnan and Craig Ferguson Talk James Bond's Body Hair (VIDEO)

Pierce Brosnan, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'With Pierce Brosnan on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), the conversation inevitably turned to James Bond, which he portrayed from 1995 to 2002.

Despite saying that he virtually jumped from television series 'Remington Steele' to Bond -- when apparently Geoff fell in love with him -- it was an eight-year gap during which he starred in several films.

But it always comes back to Bond. Craig Ferguson noted that current Bond Daniel Craig has no body hair, and wondered how that works for the secret agent. "I don't know where you keep your secret documents and stuff if you don't have at least some hair," he said. "Sean Connery was covered in hair."

Charlize Theron, 'Late Show with David Letterman'It's been a while since Charlize Theron graced the cinema screen, though she has started making public appearances more recently. "I took about three years off, kind of," she admitted on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

When Letterman asked her what she'd been up to for three years, Theron joked, "I had massive plastic surgery and I needed to heal from it."

"From where I'm sitting, you got your money's worth," he responded, before trying to clarify for the audience that she was just kidding.

"No, I did," she insisted with a smile. "I think you should just be honest about it." Then, gesturing to her entire face she said, "I had everything replaced."

'The Big Bang Theory': Leonard Stands Up to His High School Bully (VIDEO)

'The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Speckerman Recurrence'This week's episode of 'The Big Bang Theory' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS) kept the boys and girls completely separate throughout, as if the writers are testing to see if the trio of Bernadette, Penny and Amy can sustain their own plots. Spin-off brewing maybe?

While the women were busy talking about who was bullied and who was a bully -- one guess which was which -- Leonard found himself faced with one of his high school tormentors. It turned out that Jimmy Speckerman wanted a nerd to flesh out a rather simplistic idea he had so they could make a fortune, but Leonard was more interested in facing his fears and forcing an apology.

'The Talk': Vicki Lawrence's Mama Has the Solution to US Border Problems (VIDEO)

Vicki Lawrence, 'The Talk'At 62 years old, Vicki Lawrence is closing in on the 65-year old character she first made famous on 'The Carol Burnett Show.' 'Mama's Family' would go on to run five seasons of its own, and as proven on 'The Talk' (Weekdays, Syndicated on CBS), it's a character she's still not gotten rid of.

And somehow, 'Mama' Thelma Harper doesn't look like she's aged a day in the past 30+ years. But she's as opinionated and progressive as ever, proposing that the solution to the border patrol problems is to build senior citizen homes along it.

"Nobody sees more than a nosy old lady," she said as the audience erupted in roars of laughter.

Trace Adkins, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Maybe it's because Trace Adkins is surrounded by women in his household, but he was a little brutal toward Craig Ferguson's boys on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). Upon seeing a picture of them he said, "That's some ugly young'uns."

He turned it around to Ferguson, though, saying that they looked just like their father. "I'll be sure to pass on your opinion to my wife," Ferguson said.

Adkins then admitted that it took until his second grandchild to get a boy in the house. He has five daughters ranging in age from 26 to 7. "He's completely worthless," Adkins said of his grandson. "He doesn't help me at all ... He needs to step it up."

Tom Dreesen on the Perils of Trying to Keep Up With Frank Sinatra (VIDEO)

Tom Dreeson talks Frank Sinatra, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Tom Dreesen was a groundbreaking comedian in the late 1960s, and wound up as the opening act for Frank Sinatra in later decades. It was an exciting life, but not always an easy one, as he explained on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

The biggest challenge for Dreesen, and in fact Sinatra's entire entourage, was the hours Ol' Blue Eyes kept. "Even when we were off the road, he never went to bed until dawn," Dreesen said. "Off the road or on the road, six o'clock in the morning he wanted you to hang with him."

After a particularly grueling cross-country trek, Dreesen finally had had enough for one night, and decided to go to bed. When Sinatra asked him why, he responded, "I got to get up early in the morning and go to the cemetery and visit those guys."

Valerie Bertinelli Refuses to Spank Craig Ferguson (VIDEO)

Valerie Bertinelli, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Valerie Bertinelli may be a good girl, but that's hard to maintain when you go on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). Craig Ferguson is very, very bad and he likes to bring out the bad in all of his guests.

So when Bertinelli suggested he should come on her show, 'Hot in Cleveland,' he immediately turned around and presented himself to her for a spanking. Why? Who knows. Or maybe because he knows it will get responses like this: "I'll have you know that's not the first a** I've had in my face."

While Bertinelli tried valiantly to change the subject, it simply wasn't going to happen. "Here we are again," Ferguson said. "You discussing your sexual history on the show in a candid and completely forthright manner with the viewers."

Matt Damon, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are big names in Hollywood now, but it wasn't always so. Everyone knows that they broke into the industry together, with their shared Oscar win for the screenplay of 'Good Will Hunting.' On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Damon revealed just how committed they were to making acting their career.

Dating back to when they were young teens, the boys set up a joint checking account for the sole purpose of financing trips to New York for auditions. They did commercials locally to fund these trips in the hopes of making it big. They were focused and dedicated to the dream ... well, mostly.
