President Barack Obama continues his health care push on Sunday with an interview, taped Friday, on CBS’s “60 Minutes” – marking his third appearance on the show since his election.

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) will have another chance to explain his outburst at the president’s address to Congress when he appears on “Fox News Sunday.” Fox also hosts Sens. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and  Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), along with Service Employees International Union President Andy Stern.

CBS also lands top White House adviser David Axelrod and Gang of Six member Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) for “Face the Nation,” which is sure to focus on the hotly debated health care bill.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs appears on CNN’s “State of the Union,” for what may be a charged visit after he took the network to task Friday for erroneously reporting that a Coast Guard boat on the Potomac had fired shots at another boat. CNN also features House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), as well as former Bush White House counselor Ed Gillespie.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will headline ABC’s “This Week” to discuss swine flu-preparedness. And Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Sens. John Rockefeller (D-W.V.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) round out the lineup.

On NBC's “Meet the Press,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), and physician and former Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean will continue the health care discussions.

Bloomberg’s “Political Capital” hosts Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) to discuss health care, the plan for Afghanistan and financial regulation.

Finally, Gang of Six member Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.) appears on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” to field health care reform questions from guest reporters Jeffrey Young from The Hill and Michael Coleman from the Albuquerque Journal’s Washington Bureau.
