Tuesday on TV: Utah activist Tim DeChristopher will chat with Letterman

Utah activist Tim DeChristopher is scheduled to be a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman (10:35 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2).

DeChristopher is the subject of the documentary "Bidder 70," which recounts how he bid in a BLM oil and gas lease auction to prevent oil and gas companies from getting access to the land. He eventually spent almost two years in prison after being convicted of crimes related to his fraudulent bids.
