Why do you watch Sunday morning political shows?
These shows have little appeal to me because first of all they're on a Sunday. The broadcast networks don't promote them, so who watches them? If they produced a similar political show during prime time like around 8pm on a Tuesday I would watch it.

Second, everytime I watch them: they seem to support the executive office regardless of political affiliation and they don't ask the real question, they seem to ask questions at face value.

I was just wondering all these years, because I rarely watch them.

1. I don't have cable, so my options
are pretty limited on Sunday morning. I'd rather watch "This Week" than watch religious programming.

6. Good answer
Because so many religious tv shows in America are conservative or evangelical. There is absolutely no religious television programing that reflects the mainline Christian POV.

11. I used to.
They were somewhat interesting during the election. Now they seem to be stuck with either promoting, refuting, or defending increasingly improbable republikan talking points.

Who needs 'em?

5. They Make Me Laugh...
I laugh and laugh and then all of a sudden I think, there are some people who take these shows seriously. I become afraid, very afraid.

9. I work on Sunday Mornings so I don't
get to watch them. On occasion I might pick up the rerun of MTP, but rarely.
