THE WEST WING --(9:00PM-10:00PM) --(TV-PG)
WHITE HOUSE STUNNED BY FORMER VEEP'S EMBARRASSING ALLEGATIONS IN TELL-ALL BOOK -- TIM MATHESON AND JAY MOHR GUEST STAR -- The Bartlet administration reels from press leaks that ex-Vice President Hoynes (guest star Tim Matheson) is preparing a tell-all book that will embarrass the President (Martin Sheen) and Leo (John Spencer) as the Veep plans to make his own run for the White House. The news flash first stuns C.J. (Allison Janney) live on the air as she jousts with acerbic pundit Taylor Reid (guest star Jay Mohr, NBC's "The Last Comic Standing"). Elsewhere, while Josh (Bradley Whitford) welcomes Washington's mayor (guest star James Pickens, Jr., "The Lyon's Den") to the White House to discuss school vouchers, Josh also faces a political firestorm when Ryan (guest star Jesse Bradford) proposes closing a military base in a district belonging to a powerful Congressman. Toby (Richard Schiff) parleys with trade union bosses who get hung up over import safeguards for brassieres. Dule Hill, Janel Moloney and Joshua Malina also star.
