CBS reaches into its own vault and revives Person to Person (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), which from 1953-61 featured news legend Edward R. Murrow interviewing all sorts of celebrities and newsmakers.

That was a weekly series. This is a one-time special - for now. If the numbers are good, we'll see more.

Co-hosts Lara Logan and Charlie Rose interview George Clooney, Warren Buffet and Jon Bon Jovi. And, as was the case half a century ago, the twist is that we see the interviewees in their own homes. (Or, in the case of Buffet, in his Omaha office.)
