Barack and Barbara
“20/20” (9 p.m. Friday, KSTP, Ch. 5) looks back at some of Barbara Walters’ most memorable White House interviews and includes a fresh chat with President Obama. Maybe the two will exchange notes over which group is harder to deal with: Congress or the cast of “The View.”

The five-episode coda for “Treme” (8 p.m. Sunday, HBO) begins as the characters continue to cope with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina through tears, music and a whole lot of red beans and rice. “Treme” may not be as rich as David Simon’s previous work (most notably “The Wire”), but it’s still a feast for anyone who has danced and drunk their way through the streets of New Orleans.
