"Washington Unplugged" Unleashed

Later today, CBSNews.com will debut a new, web-only show, "Washington Unplugged," moderated by Face the Nation's Bob Schieffer.

The hard-hitting, politics-centered show will appear every Friday and showcase CBS News' brightest commentators and correspondents.

The fifteen-minute program, appearing on CBSNews.com and Politico.com, will feature a weekly roundtable on the week in politics, newsmaker interviews, web original pieces and a thoughtful, provocative commentary.

"We'll focus on the news but will try to make it lively and entertaining," Schieffer explained. "And we will aim to get at some of the things that tell you how Washington really works -- some of the things that don't always make it into our broadcasts."

We hope "Washington Unplugged" will get out ahead on the week's news before the Sunday talk shows.

To check it out, tune in at 2 p.m. on Fridays right here on Hotsheet or at CBSNews.com/washingtonunplugged.
