Republicans dominated Sunday shows in '13

Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee member Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., questions Jeh Johnson, President Barack Obama's choice to become Homeland Security Secretary, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, during the hearing on Johnson's nomination. (AP) has a look at who were the most frequent guests on the Sunday political news shows:

For 2013, the race wasn’t especially close – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) easily came out on top, making 27 appearances this year. That works out to an average of one appearance every 1.9 weeks (or 2.25 Sunday show appearances a month, every month for a year).

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who led the race for much of the year, ended up in second place with 24 appearances over 52 weeks. As a consolation prize, it’s worth noting that McCain made 21 Sunday show appearances in 2012, so while he couldn’t match Rogers’ 2013 tally, at least the Arizona Republican saw a significant increase. …

In all, 10 of the top 13 are Republicans, as are six of the top seven.
