Who’s up on the Sunday Talk Shows?

Members of the powerful deficit-slashing super-committee highlight this Sunday’s television talk shows as the 12-member, bipartisan panel struggles to find $1.2 trillion in savings by Thanksgiving.

The committee’s Republican co-chair, Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling, is on CNN’s “State of the Union,” along with two members of the Senate’s deficit-minded Gang of Six – Sens. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.). Additionally, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus talks presidential politics, while Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat, assesses the economy from his municipal perch.

Fox News Sunday” has two more supercommittee members – Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.).

Meanwhile, NBC’s “Meet the Press” hosts Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who’s seeking the Republican presidential nomination, and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

Also, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican, will discuss the charges of sexual child abuse that have engulfed Penn State football.

And a day after the CBS News/National Journal Republican presidential debate in South Carolina, “Face the Nation” interviews candidate Jon Huntsman and assesses the race with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.); Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a Republican; and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.

ABC’s “This Week” has a political roundtable with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile; Dana Loesch, editor-in-chief of BigJournalism.com; and ABC’s Jonathan Karl and George Will.

Bloomberg TV’s “Political Capital” hosts Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.).

C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” has Grover Norquist, president of the anti-tax group Americans for Tax Reform, who’ll be interviewed by the Washington Examiner’s Susan Ferrechio and The Hill’s Bernie Becker.

And TV One’s “Washington Watch” also has Clyburn, along with Lee Saunders, secretary-treasurer of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

Many thanks to Politico for their acute observation.
