As readers of this section probably already know, Barbara Walters and her cohorts from ABC's "The View" are coming to the Walt Disney lot to do a week's worth of shows starting today. This column spoke with Walters by phone last week and is pleased to report that she's a great interview. (Are you surprised?)

In case you were recently plucked from a mine shaft, at the close of her recent post- Oscars special, the legendary broadcaster got a personal (albeit fully clothed) lap dance from Jackman, the host of this year's Academy Awards. We're pretty confident it was fantastic TV but can't say for sure because when Jackman started shaking his moneymaker, sending Walters into squeals of surprise and delight, we passed out.

Read the full story.
