Ticket Notice: Sunday shows--Axelrod, Graham, Gibbs, McCain

February 14, 2009 | 12:00 pm

(UPDATE: No offense to the riveting network guest lists below, but here's what you might really want to TiVo Sunday morning at 6 Pacific: C-SPAN releases its second Historians' Survey of Presidential Leadership in which a bunch of them rank all the presidents on 10 criteria. Look for Buchanan and Filmore to make their move on Tyler this year.)

(AN EVEN NEWER UPDATE: You can find the results of the new C-SPAN historical presidential rankings by clicking here. You won't be surprised about No. 1. But the bottom guy might fool you.)

ABC's This Week: Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Reps. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and a round table of Donna Brazile, Sam Donaldson, Cokie Roberts and George Will.

CBS' Face the Nation: White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) and Rep. Barney Franks (D-Mass.). President Barack Obama's press secretary Robert Gibbs at his White House podium

CNN's State of the Union: Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) and NBA Hall of Famers Bill Russell and Magic Johnson, NBA All-Stars Chris Paul, Grant Hill and two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash.

Fox News Sunday: Obama aide David Axelrod, Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Moody's's Mark Zandi. Panel discussion on the economy: Chris Wallace and Bill Sammon of Fox News, Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard and Mara Liaison and Juan Williams of NPR.
