Guests on the Sunday morning political talk shows could shift as news continues to develop out of the Friday night terrorist attacks in Paris. As it stands, however, Jeb Bush is hitting NBC’s Meet The Press and CNN’s State Of The Union in an attempt to build on his debate performance this week, which was considered to be “stabilizing” by most analysts and not a total disaster like his previous debate appearances. There are single appearances by other 2016 candidates: Ben Carson on Fox News Sunday, Marco Rubio on ABC’s This Week and Martin O’Malley on This Week as the only Democratic candidate hitting the Sunday morning shows.
