Face the Nation

Face the Nation Brief Information

Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer is an American Sunday-morning political interview show which premiered on the CBS television network on November 7, 1954. It is one of the longest-running news programs in the history of television. At 30 minutes (approximately 21 without commercials), Face the Nation was the shortest of the Sunday talk shows and the only half-hour Sunday morning talk show on the four major broadcast networks. It expanded to 60 minutes for a preliminary period of twenty weeks in April 2012, and was permanently extended to 60 minutes long on July 29, 2012. The show airs live at 10:30 am Eastern, though most CBS affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone air it at 8:30 am local time.

Each Sunday, the moderator interviews newsmakers on the latest issues and delivers a short topical commentary at the end of the broadcast. The program generally broadcasts from Washington, D.C. Guests include government leaders, politicians, and international figures in the news. CBS News correspondents and other contributors engage the guests in a roundtable discussion focusing on current topics. The program broadcasts on CBS, usually at 10:30 AM ET, right after CBS News Sunday Morning. Local affiliates are free to air the show at the time of their choosing, usually before noon local time. The show is also broadcast on a delay on a handful of radio affiliates through the CBS Radio Network.
