Series: Meet the Press
If it's Sunday, it's Meet the Press.

NBC news Talk Show, originally moderated by Lawrence E. Spivak. Was hosted by Tim Russert, under the title Meet the Press With Tim Russert, until his death in June 2008. David Gregory hosted from December 2008 to August 2014, and as of September 2014, Chuck Todd is now hosting the program.

Launched on the radio in 1945, Meet the Press had its television premiere in 1947. It is the longest running show in the history of television.

The ABC network ran its own Sunday Morning talk-talk with Issues And Answers; that ran from 1960 to 1981, when it was replaced by the still-running This Week. CBS's competing offering was Face The Nation, which started in 1954 and is still on the air.

Meet The Press was once described by Jon Stewart as "one of those shows that exists so that clips from it can be shown on other shows".
