Looks like "60 Minutes" scored the first post-election interview with President-elect Barack Obama - it will air on Sunday at 7:00pm on CBS.

As we know, Rob Lowe and family had to flee the fire in Montecito, any idea on how many other TV/film celebs will become "homeless" from the seemingly out-of-control blaze?

Don't forget Sunday at 11:30pm-ish is the premiere of "Robot Chicken: Star Wars - Episode Two". Check out our interview with series writer and voice actor (voice of Boba Fett!!!) Breckin Meyer.
