Watch ABC This Week with George Stephanopoulos

ABC's This Week is a weekly American news program focusing on the latest news in the United States and around the world. The show is currently hosted by George Stephanopoulos, who brings a range of solid experience to the program. Stephanopoulos served in the White House under former President Bill Clinton as White House Communications Director. Since departing the White House in 1996, Stephanopoulos has taken an active role in journalism and become a well-known face to many Americans.

The topics discussed on the show range from domestic issues to the latest in the United State's relations with foreign countries. Each episode usually has a number of guests to offer their opinion on current events. During the election season, the show typically emphasizes the latest in the upcoming presidential election. The show frequently hosts guests to represent one of the candidates. This provides great exposure for those running for office and gives them an opportunity to share their platform.

One of the notable features of the program is the weekly roundtable segment. The roundtable features the host and a variety of special guests that change from week to week. Recurring guests include columnist George Will, Democratic strategist Donna Brazile and political analyst Matthew Dowd. Other notable recent guests include television personality Keith Olbermann, columnist Peggy Noonan and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. During the roundtable discussion, the guests and the host discuss the issues highlighted on the show. If the show features a particularly controversial subject or guest, the roundtable discussion can get heated.

This Week also has a humorous side with a segment showing a series of jokes from the previous week's late night television programs.

The show also features a somber segment dedicated to American military men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty. This segment quietly pays tribute to these individuals by sharing their names.

The show began its run 1981, airing every Sunday morning on ABC. Journalist David Brinkley served as the program's original host. George Stephanopoulos is now hosting the program for a second time, as he had previously hosted it from 2002 to 2010. The current show is filmed in Washington, D.C. at the Newseum, a museum dedicated to the field of journalism. The show was also the first Sunday news program to be filmed in high definition. The program also airs globally in Japan, Australia, parts of Europe, and the Middle East.
