Previewing the Sunday Shows
The focus will be on the Super Bowl and Nevada caucus results on the Sunday shows this weekend.
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich will once again make two television appearances the day after the Nevada caucus, going on both Meet the Press and Face the Nation. Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., will be on Fox News Sunday.
NBC is hosting the Super Bowl and politicians from the states involved will appear on Meet the Press. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, and Indiana Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels will talk about the big game and 2012.
Fox News Sunday has Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell as a Mitt Romneysurrogate and former Rep. JC Watts, R-Okla., as a Newt Gingrich surrogate to debate the race.
