The Barbara Walters publicity tour continues over the next few days, as she’ll appear tonight, this time as the subject rather than host, in a one-hour ABC prime time special. Charles Gibson anchors, “Audition: Barbara Walters’ Journey,” at 10pmET.

On Monday night, Walters sits down in her first prime time live interview, with Larry King on CNN at 9pmET.

One stop we’re hearing Walters is not scheduled to make is on the set of her former employer, NBC’s Today show.

Walters book sales of, “Audition,” have started strong after just one day of release. The book has gone to press five times already and over 725,000 copies are now in print. It was the #1 book on both and yesterday.
