Gregory, Schieffer on the Sunday Show Race

facemeet_2-8.jpgB&C’s Marisa Guthrie posts two interviews today with the hosts of two broadcast net Sunday shows.

During a Q&A in which he notes the overuse of “exclusive” and describes Jon Stewart as an “editorial page cartoonist,” CBS’ Bob Schieffer, host of “Face the Nation,” admits he got “scooped” last week by Barbara Walters, who interviewed Scott Brown for ABC’s “This Week,” but says that in the larger scheme “it’s a three-way dogfight” among his competitors since Tim Russert‘s passing:

Meet the Press is still on top. And I think David [Gregory] does a good job. But it’s just very close now. But much of it depends on the booking. We all have to be on our toes.

NBC’s David Gregory had this to say about his first place ranking:

It was certainly not a given that a year later I would still be number one, having to succeed Tim Russert. I’m not entitled to anything that the program had before me. I’ve had to work very hard to keep us where we are.

The Gregory piece also has some pretty amusing anecdotes about his days as an intern just starting out at Tucson’s KGUN.
