‘Sunday Morning’ back on set, albeit scaled back
“CBS Sunday Morning” returned to a physical set for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic for this past weekend’s food issue ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
The virtual space mimicked the real set, including a mix of faux vertical video displays and branded plexi panels. Earlier versions appeared to be created from actual photos of the set, while it would later introduce ones that appeared to be 3D models.

The revised set for “Sunday Morning,” however, is significantly scaled back. Most of the physical scenic pieces are missing.
Gone are most of the panels, video technology and even the riser, which created an awkward height difference for Pauley.
The show did return to its long tradition of topical decor, however, bringing in plenty of fall decor and even a dining table.
It’s unclear if the program will ever return to its now-former look. “CBS Mornings,” named after “Sunday Morning,” broadcasts from Times Square and could also be a future location for the program rather than its usual home in the CBS Broadcast Center.
