Tonight, Wednessday,  Dec. 15, 2010, the next to the last night of CNN's "Larry King Live," the host visits Barbra Streisand at her Malibu home

But what about tomorrow night, his last show?

"Here’s what CNN is saying about the last show: Ryan Seacrest and Bill Maher will be on set with King. There will be 14 other guests from various cities across the country." So writes longtime TV critic Hal Boedeker in the Orlando Sentinel.

As you'll recall, King had publicly supported the picking of Seacrest as his successor. But CNN chose Piers Morgan to replace King.

Boedeker adds that those 14 other guests "are politicians, comedians, journalists, television personalities and musicians, CNN says. Promos suggest those people include Barbara Walters, Katie Couric and Brian Williams.CNN says there will be a surprise performance, too."
