Previewing the Sunday Shows

The Easter Sunday lineups at the weekend public-affairs programs will add a dash of religion to the usual political fare. One political highlight: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will talk about immigration and guns on CNN's "State of the Union." Univision's "Al Punto" will feature President Obama in a pre-recorded interview, also addressing his immigration-reform efforts.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, will appear on two of the Sunday shows, while Washington's archbishop, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, will visit with "Fox News Sunday."
