About This Week (TV Show)

This Week is ABC's Sunday morning political affairs program. The Sunday morning talk show has aired on Sunday mornings on ABC since 1981; the program is initially aired at 9:00 AM ET, although many stations air the program later, especially those in other time zones. Currently, George Stephanopoulos is the host for the second time in the show's history. Former Good Morning America and World News Tonight anchor Charles Gibson performed the voice-over at the beginning of George Stephanopoulos second turn at This Week. In 1960, ABC's Sunday talk show was launched as Issues and Answers. One of its early hosts was Howard K. Smith, who also had his own prime-time public affairs program Howard K. Smith: News and Comment in the 1962-1963 season. Another host was Bob Clark. On November 15, 1981, David Brinkley came to the network from NBC and took over the show, which was renamed This Week.
