Previewing the Sunday Shows
Updated at 7:28 p.m. on 1/21:
The morning after polls close in South Carolina, the Sunday shows will focus on the transition from the first in the south primary, to Florida. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who could pull off a victory in the Palmetto state Saturday night, will be on Meet the Press, State of the Union, and Face the Nation on Sunday morning. Gingrich was originally scheduled to appear solely on ABC's This Week, but was removed from the guest list on Friday afternoon. A spokeswoman for ABC, which released a controversial interview with Gingrich's ex-wife on Thursday, declined to comment on the change. Gingrich was added to both the CBS and CNN shows some time on Saturday, according to spokeswomen for both networks.
Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., who trails South Carolina, will join Gingrich on State of the Union and will also drop by This Weekand State of the Union to discuss whether his campaign can move forward. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be on Fox News Sunday. His campaign will also be represented by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will stop by Meet the Press.
