The Teaser for Friday, September 24, 2010

"The Teaser” is a preview of the guests we have lined up for the next day – so you know when to tune in (and when to set your alarm!). Guests and times are always subject to change.

6:40AM Steve Perry, CNN Education Contributor and principal/founder of Capital Preparatory Magnet School and David Kirkpatrick, Author of "The Facebook Effect" , on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg donating $100 million to improve Newark Public Schools. Can such a large sum of money turn around the troubled school system? And what does a move like this mean for Zuckerberg?

7:40AM Steve Sebelius, editor of Las Vegas City Life and political analyst for 8 News Now , on the heated race for Nevada's Senate seat between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Tea Party-backed candidate Sharron Angle.

8:05AM Candy Crowley CNN Chief Political Correspondent and host of "State of the Union" , on the likelihood that tax cuts will not be addressed in Congress before the midterm elections, and her thoughts on some surprisingly tight races in Nevada, Colorado and New York. We'll also get a preview of what she has lined up for "State of the Union" this Sunday.

8:40AM Sarah Shourd, detained in Iran
, on being released from prison in Iran last Tuesday after being held in the notorious Evin prison for 14 months. We'll ask her final moments with fiancé Shane Bauer and friend Josh Fattal, who were also imprisoned with her, and what's next in her efforts to get them released.

    Suckerberg is just trying to offset the negative press that he's been getting lately due to the movie and the old IM/chat messages.

    I find the story of Shourd and her friends a little hard to accept. From the TV interview, she seemed a little to intelligent to have made such a stupid mistake. She strikes me as one of those people who feel they have some sort of mission.
