CBS Sunday Morning
I have absolutely fallen in love with this show. Sunday Mornings 9am - 10:30am
It's like NPR television...
"The program follows a format similar to a Sunday newspaper, but presented in a television show. Notably, Sunday Morning includes significant coverage of the fine and performing arts, including coverage of topics usually not covered in network news, such as architecture, painting, ballet, opera, and classical music, though increasingly more popular forms of music have been included as well. The program correspondents tend to ask nontraditional questions of guests; for instance, actor Brad Pitt was asked about his love of architecture, and Grant Hill about his painting collection. Television essays similar to the kinds delivered on PBS also appear, and the program generally has a stable of equally positive and negative news stories to fill up the program when there is no breaking news of note. Story lengths are longer and the pace of the program is considerably quieter and more relaxed than the weekday Early Show. Commentators Ben Stein and Nancy Giles appear in recurring segments, delivering their opinion, and correspondent Bill Geist also contributes human interest stories.  The program ends with a nature scene, not given a formal title for most of the program's history but since entitled "Moment of Nature" as it's now a sponsored element. Despite the stereotype of the program appealing primarily to senior citizens, the show actually placed first among its time slot in the key 25–54 demographic, beating all of the other Sunday morning talk shows."
