This Week in Politics is a weekly political news and talk program on CNN.


Originally started as This Week at War, the program focused on the week's news regarding U.S.-involved wars, security in the United States, and terrorism.

Due to much excitement over the 2008 presidential election season, the title was changed to This Week in Politics in January 2008. Airing on CNN/US, the program appeared at 6 p.m. ET Saturdays and 2 p.m. ET Sundays, hosted by Tom Foreman.
