It’s the April Fool’s Day edition of Sunday Talks! However – no fooling! – Joe Biden is going to be on Face the Nation. Not to worry, though. There are still plenty of fools hitting the Sunday talk show circuit.

Vice President Joe Biden headlines this Sunday’s television talk shows, appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” as it shifts to an hour-long format for the first time in its 57-year history.

The Vice President’s discussion with host Bob Schieffer, taped in Milwaukee, will be followed by interviews with Republican presidential rivals Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.

Another GOP rival, Rick Santorum, is on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and “Fox News Sunday.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is also on NBC. And former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a Republican, and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, a Democrat, are also on Fox.

On CNN, “State of the Union” has Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

Additionally, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and its ranking Democrat, Maryland Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, also stop by.

And Ryan and Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee, are on ABC’s “This Week.”
