Also on the show: actress and author Carrie Fisher on growing up with celebrity, her new one-woman show, "Wishful Drinking," and being known as Princess Leia all her adult life; a bad weather weekend for the NFL; the week's agenda on Capitol Hill and beyond; economist and author Nassim Taleb on "The Bed of Procrustes," his new book of pithy aphorisms; and personal reinvention as a quintessentially American value.
