ABC This Week
This Sunday, "This Week" analyzes the fragile cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, the battle over Benghazi, and the negotiations on the fiscal cliff-hanger, with Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Dick Durbin
After a tense and violent week in the Middle East, a truce is reached between Hamas and Israel. But how long will it last, and has Hamas emerged stronger from the conflict? Will ongoing questions over what happened in Benghazi impact President Obama's second-term cabinet selections? And will there be any breakthroughs in the high-stakes talks over the fiscal cliff, as the year-end deadline draws closer?
Armed Services Committee member Sen. Lindsey Graham and Foreign Relations Committee member and Senate Majority Whip Sen. Dick Durbin speak to George Stephanopoulos this Sunday, only on "This Week."
Plus, actor and director Ben Affleck, founder of the Eastern Congo Initiative, and Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., come to "This Week" to discuss renewed fighting between rebels and government forces in war-torn Central Africa. With fears over escalating violence and a potential humanitarian crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Affleck speaks to George Stephanopoulos about his call for the United States to engage with regional leaders for a cease-fire.
Then, the "This Week" powerhouse roundtable debates all the week's news and politics, with political strategist and ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd, TIME Magazine's Joe Klein, Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, and The New York Times' David Sanger author of "Confront and Conceal."
And what does a pair of buzz shears have to do with bringing bipartisanship to Washington? Sunday on "This Week," two party flacks are setting aside their differences by settling a hair-raising political bet – and it all benefits a good cause. Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse and his Republican counterpart, Sean Spicer of the Republican National Committee, team up to support the St. Baldrick's Foundation, a national group that raises money for childhood cancer research grants by shaving the heads of volunteers. Woodhouse and Spicer have both agreed to lose their locks for charity, and – with a little razor help from ABC's Jonathan Karl – you can catch their hair-raising transformation Sunday on "This Week."
Meet the Press
The challenges President Obama faces at home and abroad as he prepares for his second term. After a bruising and partisan election, will Washington succeed in reaching an agreement to avert the ‘fiscal cliff’? Will the Obama administration be able to calm the crisis in the Middle East? And as lawmakers continue to press for more details, what fallout will the president face from the Benghazi attacks and the Petraeus affair ? Joining our special conversation: Documentary filmmaker and historian Ken Burns; Vice Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Carly Fiorina; MSNBC’s Al Sharpton New York Times columnist David Brooks; and NBC’s Andrea Mitchell
A pivotal time for Congress. The clock ticks as the country approaches the fiscal cliff and mandatory spending cuts in areas such as defense loom large if Washington can't make a deal. Plus, lawmakers continue their probe into the Sept. 11th attack in Libya. And a large portion of the Northeast is still dealing with the Sandy recovery effort through the holiday -- all of this before the president officially begins his second term. What should we expect from Capitol Hill in the weeks and months ahead? We'll check in with the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee Sen. Carl Levin, Rep. Gregory Meeks and Chair of the Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Peter King

Up w/Chris Hayes
Sunday’s guests (Nov. 25): After the crisis in Gaza, what next? Egypt’s president confounds expectations, the battle over Susan Rice & how Obama saw terrorism in 2004
On Sunday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll discuss the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas, and ask what role the United States can and should play in bringing about a permanent resolution to the conflict. As part of that discussion, we’ll also air an especially revealing clip we’ve unearthed of Barack Obama in 2004, at the time a newly elected senator from Illinois, talking about the causes of terrorism. Tomorrow we'll play a clip we unearthed of Barack Obama talking about the causes of terrorism in '04. Here's a preview:

We’ll also examine Egypt’s president, Mohamed Morsi, who helped broker the ceasefire and has proved considerably more savvy than his critics and supporters expected. A day after cementing the ceasefire, Morsi claimed for himself vast powers in Egypt’s government. Plus: We’ll look at the brewing battle over Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who’s on President Obama’s short-list for Secretary of State in a second term
