December 20, 2015

With two debates and lots of media fearmongering, this week's bobblehead shows should be full of fire. Here's the lineup, via The Hill:

ABC’s “This Week”: As hosts of the Democratic debate, ABC will have Sanders live on set from New Hampshire to get his reaction to the contest. Palmieri will follow on the program to spin Clinton’s performance.

A pair of combative GOP presidential candidates who are up in the polls, Trump and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, will also be on to give their reactions to the debate.

CBS’ “Face the Nation”: A pair of Floridian Republican primary candidates, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Gov. Jeb Bush, headline the program.

Rubio will respond to allegations that he has been delinquent in his duty as a senator by missing the vote on the omnibus bill Friday, and Bush will try to spin his positive performance at Tuesday’s Republican debate.

CNN’s “State of the Union”: Both sitting senators from the Bluegrass State will be on the program, as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gives his take on the government spending bill that he voted against Friday.

He will be followed by his elder statesman, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who was instrumental in the bill’s passage.

Former Republican primary candidate Rick Perry, who dropped out of the race in September, will also be on the show as a part of the political roundtable.

“Fox News Sunday”: Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina will be on the program to evaluate the debate performance of her bête noire, Clinton.

The former business executive will be followed by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and introduced legislation earlier this week to ban assault weapons.

NBC’s “Meet the Press”: Trump will make his second appearance on the day, where he will discuss his praise of “highly respected” Russian strongman Putin.

Sanders will also be on, as will Ryan.
