Domestic bombings...an exclusive look at who is behind the majority of them...that story tonight on The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric

Here’s an early look at what we are working on for tonight’s broadcast of The CBS Evening News from Anchor and Managing Editor, Katie Couric:

Hi everyone,

We’ll begin tonight with the astounding allegations against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. He’s accused of trying to “sell” Barack Obama’s Senate seat, among other charges. In announcing the arrest, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald said “the conduct would make Lincoln turn over in his grave.” Blagojevich is also accused of trying to strong-arm the Chicago Tribune into firing members of the paper’s editorial board. Dean Reynolds reports from Chicago and Jeff Greenfield joins us to shed some light on the history of corruption … in Illinois politics.

In Washington, lawmakers are still hammering out some final details of the proposed $15 billion auto industry bailout. They're hoping to reach an agreement by the end of the day, and Sharyl Attkisson has the very latest.

Also tonight: A CBS News exclusive report on domestic bombings. What has authorities very concerned is who is behind the majority of them. As Armen Keteyian reports, there's a brazen new generation of bombers right here in the United States.

Dr. Jon LaPook follows up on his October report that certain vitamins might do very little - or nothing - to help stave off some cancers. Today, a prominent medical journal weighed in on the matter. We'll show you the evidence tonight.

Finally tonight: what happens when extreme auto mechanics go eco-friendly? Hari Sreenivasan shows us the art of transforming gas-guzzlers into lean, green machines.

See you tonight,

Julie Chen, Maggie Rodriguez, Harry Smith, Russ Mitchell will anchor the EARLY SHOW from New York. Dave Price will bring us the weather.

Along with the top stories, we are currently working on the following segments:

WOMEN INVESTORS MAKING BIG BUCKS -Despite the sagging stock market, there are some people who are finding that this is a good time to invest their money - with the help of friends…call it a “book club” of sorts. However, instead of getting together, once a month, to discuss the latest best sellers, stocks are the topic of choice. It's a trend that's becoming more popular, especially, with women of all ages. Early Show financial contributor Vera Gibbons will be here to tell you why these work and how you can do it too.

ACTOR JAMES FRANCO OF THE NEW MOVIE “MILK” -Many actors strive for the year James Franco is having. This summer he received, not only rave reviews but also stellar attendance at the box office for the stoner comedy "Pineapple Express." Now Franco is receiving Oscar buzz for his role as activist Harvey Milk's lover and confidante in the new film "Milk." He will join us in the studio to talk about this new controversial film, and what it was like to act opposite Sean Penn in the intimate sex scenes.

HOLIDAY FASHIONS AND OUTFITS FOR LESS THAN $100 -Looking for the perfect holiday dress for that special occasion, but, you aren’t a perfect size six and you also don’t want to break the bank? Amy Goodman from All You Magazine will have five outfits on hand for five different figure types, all at less than 100 dollars. A segment your viewers won’t want to miss.

THE PERFECT GIFT: COOKIES - When giving gifts for the holidays, sometimes homemade is the best. And what are some of the best homemade treats for the Holidays? Cookies of course! Lucinda Scala Quinn, Director of food at “Martha Stewart Living” will join us to show us some of her favorite cookie recipes, and some beautiful ways to present them as gifts.

R&B SINGER BRANDY PERFORMS LIVE! - It’s hard to believe that it was just 15 years ago when singer Brandy first emerged on to the scene. For the past decade and a half, the Grammy Award-winning Mississippi native has kept busy -- selling over 25 million albums, starring in her own sitcom, and becoming a mother. Brandy will sing "Departed" from her newly released album "Human.”
