    Sesame Street [#4313H] The Very End of X Big Bird and Snuffy are the hosts of "The Letter of the Day Show" on Sesame Street! The only problem is that the letter they were supposed to introduce and sing about is broken into two straight pieces. Big Bird and Snuffy need help determining which letter it is, so they use the guests on the show as clues. Their first guest is a box, which begins with the letter "B", so they think the letter must be "B". When they try to put the broken pieces of the letter together, however, it does not form a "B". Big Bird and Snuffy realize the letter must have two straight lines. The next guest is wax, so Big Bird and Snuffy think the letter must be "W", but that letter has four straight lines. The next guest is Leela dressed up as a Tyrannosaurs Rex. Big Bird thinks that this has all become too hard because all of the guests start with a different letter - box, wax, and Tyrannosaurs Rex. After he says the words out loud, Snuffy realizes that all of the letters end with the same sound. They figure out that these words don't start with the same letter, but end with the same letter-"X"! Leela helps them cross the two straight lines of the broken letter together and they form the letter "X"! Other guests that end with the letter "X" appear on the show and they all sing a song together! duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2410H] December 14, 2012 Guest Host: Yul Kwon.
    NEWS PANEL:
    IMMIGRATION POLICY - As Congress and the White House prepare to tackle comprehensive immigration reform next year, there is much at stake for California, the state with the largest population of undocumented immigrants.
    FRACKING - After decades of minimal oversight, the controversial hydraulic fracturing industry will finally be regulated in California. "Fracking," the high-pressure injection of chemicals and water to split rocks and extract natural gas and oil, is in use by companies at more than 600 wells throughout the state.
    AIR TRAVEL - The skies are less friendly than they used to be. Air travel has become increasingly frustrating with penalties and fees going up for everything from checking baggage to preferred seat selection. The struggling airline industry expects to pocket $36 billion in revenue from fees alone this year.
    KING TIDES - As the sun and moon align this week, their combined gravitational pull on the ocean is producing the highest tides of 2012. Though "king tides" aren't caused by climate change, organizers of the King Tides Initiative say the phenomenon is a vivid demonstration of the future impact of rising sea levels on the Bay Area landscape.
    Guests: Aarti Kohli, University of California, Berkeley; Stephen Stock, NBC Bay Area; Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News; and David Lazarus, LA Times.

    Washington Week [#5224H] * After a turbulent couple of weeks amid speculation that she was the leading candidate to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, UN Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew from consideration as America's top diplomat. In a letter to President Obama she said she didn't want to be a political distraction. There were increasing signals that her potential nomination could run into significant opposition from Republicans in the Senate led by John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte because of her statements regarding the September attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Martha Raddatz of ABC News will have background and the latest on how President Obama is looking to reshape his national security team.
    * Meanwhile, the deliberations between the President and House Speaker John Boehner to avert the looming economic fiscal cliff continue. There have been phone calls and at least two face-to-face meetings between the leaders but little public progress to report. John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News joins us to discuss why what sounds like a stalemate may actually be a sign of progress.
    * In a surprise announcement this week, Russian officials conceded that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad may be losing control of his country. Until now Russia has been Syria's most powerful ally. The United States has joined more than 100 nations to recognize the opposition coalition as the "legitimate representative" of the Syrian people. We will get context and analysis on the nearly two-year old revolt and chances for a peaceful resolution from David Sanger of The New York Times. < br />* This week Michigan, birthplace of the American auto industry, became the 24th state to enact right-to-work legislation which effectively bars workers from being forced to join a union. David Shepardson of The Detroit News will explain the impact of the politically-charged issue and whether the argument that it helps to create jobs might sound enticing to other states around the country.
