Previewing the Sunday Shows
Last weekend, a storm knocked out reception for many in the northeast. who were not able to watch the Sunday shows. This weekend, the skies look clear as the Sunday shows react to a tumultuous week for Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain and the approaching deadline for the congressional super committee.
On NBC's Meet the Press, host David Gregory will continue his "Meet the Candidates" series with former ambassador and former Utah Republican Gov. Jon Huntsman. Later in the show, former New Mexico Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson and Mississippi Republican Gov. Haley Barbour will analyze 2012, Cain's week, and President Obama's reelection chances. On Face the Nation, Bob Schieffer will hold court with a panel of Republican strategists and CBS political analyst John Dickerson for the latest on the battle for the GOP nomination.
On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace will sit down with Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas. Reps. Heath Shuler, D-N.C., and Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, will speak to Wallace about their bipartisan "go big" recommendations for the super committee. And as Democrats and Republicans wrestle with decisions facing the super committee, House Speaker John Boehner will be on ABC's This Week to give the latest on the negotiations.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will also be on ABC's This Week as she continues her book tour and reflects on her career and current developments in the world.
On Saturday, Fox News and Fox Business will present a live edition of The Cost of Freedom called "Euro-no! Here We Go Again" with Neil Cavuto. He'll interview political and business leaders to see how Greece's crisis will affect the United States.
