Some viewers who tune into their local CBS affiliate this Sunday may think they are seeing a familiar person return to the network’s air: Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who left CBS News in 2014 after working there more than two decades, will show up this Sunday morning in proximity to John Dickerson on “Face The Nation.”
Upon closer examination, something else will be taking place. Attkisson won’t appear alongside Dickerson, nor will she banter with Charles Osgood on “CBS Sunday Morning.” She will instead be seen on 162 TV stations operated by Sinclair Broadcast Group, the nation’s largest TV station operator, as host of a new half-hour Sunday-news program, “Full Measure.” The show will be available on Sinclair-owned affiliates of ABC, NBC, Fox and the CW as well – in 38% of the country in total – in the morning block inhabited by those popular public-affairs programs.

Where did Amy Schumer get her sense of humor? "I think it was the divorce and my dad getting sick that were the wonderful gifts that made me the strong angel you see here today," the 34-year-old writer and star of Universal Pictures' Trainwreck laughingly tells Mo Rocca in an interview for CBS Sunday Morning With Charles Osgood, airing July 5.

With the 2014-15 television season in the books, the Schieffer-hosted “Face the Nation” is celebrating its largest audience since the 1987 advent of Nielsen’s people meters (3.42 million), up 5% from last year. By comparison, ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” averaged 2.85 million viewers, and NBC’s “Meet the Press” averaged 2.83 million. (“Face the Nation” benefits in comparisons to the other networks’ shows because only its first half-hour is included in averages; its two half-hours air back-to-back in just about 76% of the country.)
In the key news demo of adults 25-54, “Face the Nation” (0.8 rating for its first half-hour) finished ahead of “This Week” and “Meet the Press” (both at 0.7 for their hours).
Capping a journalism career spanning 52 years, Schieffer is retiring this summer from CBS News »
