Usually, the Sunday between Christmas and New Year's Day is a little light on substance, as far as the Sunday morning talk shows are concerned. In case you missed it, that wasn't the case this year, as all four shows featured the current presidential primary races in some way or another.
From the "outsider" campaigns of Democrat U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) and Republican businessman Donald Trump to a late-night talk host's observations of the GOP presidential front-runner, the alphabet soup of television had it covered. They also found time to interview an astronaut.
And, checking out the links below, you won't have missed a single moment of it.
ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos
John Karl filled in for the host of ABC's Sunday morning talker, which featured one-on-one interviews with Republican presidential candidates businessman Donald Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. The governor attacked Trump, and declared he would be stepping up his attacks on the GOP front-runner, saying, "All he ever does is complain."
CBS's Face the Nation
CBS's Sunday morning politics program featured interviews with Democrat presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, astronaut Scott Kelly, and CBS late-night talk host Stephen Colbert. The comedian declared Trump was "his former character with $10 billion."
NBC's Meet the Press
Andrea Mitchell filled in for regular host Chuck Todd on NBC's signature Sunday morning program, which featured interviews with Sanders and film director Spike Lee. The panel discussion focused on which candidates passed the "Commander-in-Chief test" in the 2016 presidential race.
FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace
Doug McKelway stood in for Wallace on FOX's Sunday program this week, and interviewed Republican presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who said last week it was "Iowa or bust," and U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) about national security. A new FOX News presidential poll was released, and the panel discussed the Washington Post cartoon that depicted GOP presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz' young daughters as dancing monkeys.
