Here's what's coming up for the major network morning news shows today. In alphabetical order, that would be ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX and NBC. Check channels and air times for a station near you.

It's Labor Day Sunday and likely the last weekend of most people's summer, but things are heating up on a couple of fronts. Nothing directly LGBTQ related, unless you consider health care and education something that should concern us all.

For substance, I'd head to ABC or NBC. For bull, I'd head to Fox or CNN, and for a cute talking head I'd set your dial to CBS.

More info on each program after the jump.

ABC's "This Week" has an exclusive interview with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on the controversy surrounding President Obama's speech on education slated for later this week. And, yes, the right wingnuts have "made hay" about a speech on education. Do these people have lives? Following that, former senators Tom Daschle and Bob Dole talk about health care reform.

"Face the Nation" on CBS has cute guy and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on "to discuss President Obama's speech to students, fixing America's schools and the H1N1 flu."

CNN's "State of the Union" brings us their show live from the Minnesota State Fair~! Woo Hoo~! The Republican governor, Tim Pawlenty, as well as the state's senior senator, Democrat Amy Klobuchar, and Nebraskan Democratic Senator Ben Nelson will be on hand to discuss health care reform and pork bellies. Where's Al Franken when you need him?

Over at "Fox News Sunday," they promise to address, well - nothing. They say Republican Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee; Howard Dean, former Democratic National Committee chairman; former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and John Podesta, president and CEO of Center for American Progress will be on hand.

Finally, NBC's "Meet the Press" has White House Senior Adivser David Axelrod on to give us a preview of President Obama's plans to "regain control of the health care debate" as he prepares to address a joint session of Congress. And their political roundtable has an interesting group talking about CIA detainee abuse.

Labor Day weekend is only one-third of the way over, and the fight begins anew on Tuesday. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.
