Guest lineup for the Sunday TV news shows:
BP PLC said Friday it might someday drill again into the same lucrative undersea pocket of oil that spilled millions of gallons of crude, wrecked livelihoods and fouled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico.
The temporary cap on BP's ruptured oil well will stay closed even if ships evacuate the Gulf of Mexico during a tropical storm, the federal government's spill chief said Thursday.
The federal government's oil spill chief said Tuesday that seepage two miles from BP's oil cap is coming from another well, tamping down fears that leaks from the ruptured well mean it's unstable.
The custom-built cap that finally cut off the oil flowing from BP's broken well into the Gulf of Mexico held steady Sunday, and the company hopes to leave it that way until crews can kill the leak permanently.
The clock expired on BP's 48-hour observation period and the government added another day of critical monitoring. Scientists and engineers were optimistic that the well showed no obvious signs of leaks.
