Try not to cry, but Meet the Press is being preempted for English Premier League Soccer this Sunday. What are we going to do this weekend without Chuck Todd around to lob one softball after another to Republicans and the musings of the likes of Hugh Hewitt telling us how everything this primary season is going exactly as planned and how wonderful things are for the GOP?

I guess the rest of his cohorts will have to pick up the slack. Here's the lineup for this week, courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel (check your local listings for times and stations in your area).
