Meet the Press
This Sunday: Inside the closed-door Capitol Hill negotiations with President Obama’s point man, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner who this week met with top lawmakers to try to hammer out a deal.

Is Washington any closer to a deal? Despite initial optimism, both sides end the week pointing fingers as the debate centers on taxes and entitlement spending. This Sunday, an exclusive conversation between two voices calling for compromise in their respective parties: Sen. Claire McCaskill and Sen. Bob Corker

As Congress debates, what does the approaching fiscal cliff mean for the country? What impact will the talks have on the still- recovering economy? The man at the center of Republican Party infighting, anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist, joins our special political roundtable. Also weighing in: The top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, Rep. Chris Van Hollen
And insights and analysis from CNBC’s Jim Cramer and Maria Bartiromo

ABC This Week
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner discusses the latest on the high-stakes stalemate over the fiscal cliff-hanger, Sunday on "This Week."

Negotiations are at a standstill on Capitol Hill after Republicans dismissed the White House's latest proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff. With both sides dug in on their positions, who will blink first to prevent the year-end tax hikes and automatic spending cuts that threaten to hurl the economy into recession? Will an early battle over addressing the debt ceiling derail talks? And as President Obama takes his case for raising tax rates for the wealthy on the road, will public pressure to make a deal impact Congress?

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner discusses the latest on the fiscal cliff negotiations, Sunday on "This Week."

Plus, George Stephanopoulos and the "This Week" powerhouse roundtable debate all the week's politics, with House Deputy Whip Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla.; Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus; former Romney campaign senior adviser Dan Senor; former Counselor to the Treasury Secretary and Lead Auto Adviser Steven Rattner; and ABC News' Cokie Roberts

As the days tick away to the new year, what will it take for leaders in Washington to reach across the aisle and make a deal on the fiscal cliff? Will increasing Republican opposition to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice doom her potential nomination as secretary of state? And as President Obama welcomes former Republican challenger Mitt Romney to the White House, what new lessons are emerging from the 2012 campaign? The powerhouse roundtable debates those topics and more, Sunday on "This Week."

CBS Face the Nation
Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner

Then I'll talk to Sen. Lindsey Graham
He suggested a willingness to perhaps accept tax increases as part of an eventual deal. What did he mean by that? We'll also talk to him about the Benghazi consulate attack and whether he'd consider approving Amb. Susan Rice as Secretary of State after her handling of the attack.

I'll also talk to Senate Intelligence Chair Dianne Feinstein and House Intelligence Chair Mike Rogers about the consulate attack, Amb. Rice, and the fiscal cliff negotiations.

We'll wrap it all up with an in-depth look at the fiscal cliff with some really smart people. Moody's Analytics Mark Zandi, Campaign to Fix the Debt's Maya MacGuineas, TIME Magazine's Rana Foroohar and CBS News Political Director John Dickerson join me for that panel.

Fareed Zakaria GPS
On GPS Sunday: Discussing Egypt's political crisis and reading the tea leaves on China

On GPS this week, Fareed discusses Egypt’s political crisis and the road ahead with Harvard University’s Tarek Masoud and Steven Cook, author of The Struggle for Egypt.

“The military has essentially removed itself from the political system,” Cook says. “They were relieved of the burden of having to govern Egypt. They have been given immunity and Promoted...
Removing themselves from the political system is more in keeping with the history of the Egyptian armed forces since the 1967 defeat, when they determined being a political army was something that was not good for their organization and their corporate coherence and their ability to fight war on the battlefield.”

Then, a changing China: we know who Beijing’s new leaders are, but what are their policies? Writer Evan Osnos and Council on Foreign Relations fellow Elizabeth Economy read the tea leaves.

And what is “antifragile” and why is it important? Writer and thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb explains.
