Shooting Prompts Last-Minute News Show Shuffle

January 8, 2011

Television coverage of the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) will continue tomorrow on the political Sunday programs.

ABC's "This Week" completely scrapped their previously planned show and host Christiane Amanpour will now report live from the scene of the shootings in Tucson, Ariz.

CNN's "State of the Union" will preempt "Fareed Zakaria GPS" to air a special two-hour show starting at 9 a.m. Guests include Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) and newly added guests former Republican National Committee Chair Ed Gillespie and former Clinton administration Chief of Staff John Podesta.

"Fox News Sunday" has added House Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn (S.C.) to the lineup of guests and will have a live report from correspondent Trace Gallagher, who will be in Tucson. Bret Baier will anchor "Fox News Sunday," while Shepard Smith, Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly anchor throughout the day.

FOX News seems to be the last network to have an on-air interview with Giffords before the shooting. The interview aired Friday.

NBC's "Meet the Press" pre-taped their interview with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Friday and there has been no word on any lineup changes. And CBS' "Face the Nation" will continue with their previously scheduled guests -- Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) -- but will now turn their focus to the shootings.

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann will host a special "Countdown" Saturday at 8 p.m. due to the shootings. Note, Olbermann was suspended for two days by the network after it was revealed he donated to Giffords campaign in the 2010 cycle.
