What a way to cap off your Thanksgiving weekend and kick off a new week.

Tonight, on a special edition of the show, George has a feature interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger - a half hour in conversation with one of the most recognized faces and voices on the planet.

Schwarzenegger has a new memoir called Total Recall, in which he talks about his upbringing, his career, his life in politics and the end of his marriage.

In this clip, he tells a story about George W. Bush's former advisor Karl Rove, who tried to convince Arnold not to run for Governor so Condoleezza Rice could run instead.

Make sure to tune in tonight at 7 PM local time to watch the full interview.
