For the second week in a row, foreign affairs gets a much higher profile on the Sunday talk shows than usual, but we’ll get more talk about politics — and even a little March madness thrown in. Most of the shows will cover the crisis in Ukraine and the mystery of Flight 370, with Meet the Press handling both in one segment with House Intelligence chair Rep. Mike Rogers, plus Jimmy Carter discussing foreign policy (no, seriously). MTP also has the only March Madness segment, with a panel that includes Barack Obama confidante Reggie Love. Face the Nation is completely focused on the two international stories, so if you want domestic politics, you’ll want to tune in ABC’s This Week, where Nate Silver will share his polling analysis, or Fox News Sunday for John Kasich’s take on the economy and his plans for 2016.
