List Rules Vote up the best "breakfast television" programs that air in North America on Sunday mornings.

Many people have the day off work on Sunday. If you want to keep your finger on the pulse of the news, then you may still wake up a little early, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and watch one of the many Sunday morning shows currently on the air. With nowhere to go for a few hours, you can kick back with the news of the day or interviews with some of the most important people in politics and pop culture. These are the best Sunday morning shows available for American audiences, so vote for the ones you tune into frequently. 

Meet the Press has been around since 1947, and it is still one of the most trusted news sources on TV. The format consists of one-on-one interviews as well as roundtable discussions to go over the most pressing matters of the day. Face the Nation, which airs every Sunday on CBS, is also one of the longest-running news shows on TV. It also airs interviews with some of the most important people in Washington D.C.

The best weekend morning shows get you ready for the day while keeping you enlightened with what's happening in the world. With this list, you have a voice to share which shows are the best at summing up the week and preparing viewers for the week ahead.
