In the following news from CNN International, is it correct to use "On last week's"? In English Grammar, last,next,this shouldn't have preposition, but how come they use the preposition "On" for last week's, please explain, thanks.
On last week’s edition of Q&A Richard Quest & Ali Velshi debated information leaks and the possibility of a corporate documents release by WikiLeaks. What should they debate this week? Post your suggestions here. Topics must be of global interest.

Lauralie said it well. I agree. So, to come full circle, the preposition "on" will not have "week" as an object; that's true. But, "on last week's edition of Q & A", "on" is the preposition and "edition" is the object of the preposition and it works well.
Thank you for the answers. That's clear for me....
