Skip to comments.msnbc: Lawrence O’Donnell Booted To 10 p.m.; Ed Schultz Moves Up To 8:00

In a move that some might see as a sign of desperation, MSNBC has shaken things up to see if they can spark their flagging ratings. Beginning Monday, October 24th, The Last Word with Lawrence ODonnell will move back to its original time slot of 10 p.m., with Ed Schultzs The Ed Show moving up to 8:00.
Schultz will become the second anchor to try and maintain the ratings left after Keith Olbermanns defection to Current TV.
Time to post some hilarious Ed Schultz stories! Please!
Next boot is out the door for O’Donnell.
But Schultz? That’s like replacing a rabid dog with a rabid skunk.
What is MSNBC?
Is that anything like PMS?
I gather it is a news program that I will never see.
Deck chairs on the Titanic...
Sh## rises to the top
O’Donnell, kind of like Olbermann minus the personality.
The only reason I’d tune in to see either one is if they were about to experience Old Sparky. Thanks macquire.
Finally, a worse lineup than the 1962 Mets.
I never put that channel on because I don’t want to add to their ratings.
Childish maybe but helping them loons in any way is against my thought.
Seems by their ratings many others do the same as me too, LOL.
I cannot understand why someone at NBC hasn’t pulled the plug on this network. The ratings are beyond pathetic. Perhaps somehow they have figured out how to make money with the cost basis that they now have. Someone once told me that it’s hard for a TV Network to lose money. But that was before Cable and so I’m not sure that applies. MSNBC is a joke but they still have a core (albeit a small core) or loyal viewers.
If you ever find yourself bored, waiting in a doctor’s waiting room or something like that, do the following...
Imagine the thought process behind MSNBC programming. Imagine the level of stupidity required to say...”Hey, we got some idiot radio guy from the plains or somewhere who has a hair trigger, no idea about the way anything works in the world and is a FLAMING LIBERAL. Let’s give him the best spot on the channel because America is just like that. We’ll make a fortune!”
No I’m serious. Try it. And try rationalizing it ALL the way through. It’s a thought experiment that will open your eyes as to the level of incompetence, and the number of insane people that must comprise MSNBC.
It would make a hell of a study.
“hilarious Ed Schultz stories!”
I dunno if there are too many funny rabid weasel stories.
They should move them to 3 or 4 in the morning to improve their ratings. That’s when all the weirdos are awake.
The proverbial tree falling in a forest with no humans around. A little physics metaphor.
BOR says that biased news reporting is now an open and permanent way of doing business. The reason: money.
So, why does MSNBC exist?
LOL! You mean they have personalities over at PSMNBC? I thought they were all raving lunitic morons.
NBC agrees with everything that happens on MSNBC so they won't pull the plug.
I'm still amazed one of the major networks doesn't go conservative.
the sad truth is that many media outlets are money -losing propaganda wings of the left that are propped up by big money-men like George soros. Their goal is to nearly break even while spreading lies. MSNBCrap is having a hard time breaking even.
Faces filled with joy and cheer
What a magical time of year
Howdy Ho! It's Weasel Stomping Day
Put your Viking helmet on
Spread that mayonaisse on the lawn
Don't you know it's Weasel Stomping Day
All the little girls and boys
Love that wonderful crunching noise
You'll know what this day's about
When you stomp a weasel's guts right out
So, come along and have a laugh
Snap their weasely spines in half
Grap your boots and stomp your cares away
Hip hip hooray, it's Weasel Stomping Day
People up and down the street
Crushing weasels beneath their feet
Why we do it, who can say?
But it's such a festive holiday
So let the stomping fun begin
Bash their weasely skulls right in
It's tradition, that makes it okay
Hey everyone, it's Weasel Stomping
We'll have some fun on Weasel Stomping
Put down your gun, it's Weasel Stomping Day
Hip Hip Hooray, it's Weasel Stomping Day
Weasel Stomping Day
Well, it isn’t funny, but Schultz did win Media Research Center’s most biased quote of the year award for 2010:
ALEXANDRIA, VA The Media Research Center (MRC) today proudly announces that Ed Schultz is the Winner of the dis-honor of Quote of the Year for his Damn Those Conservatives diatribe on his MSNBC The Ed Show (video below):
The Republicans lie! They want to see you dead! Theyd rather make money off your dead corpse! They kind of like it when that woman has cancer and they dont have anything for her.
LOL. Akin to “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park” by Tom Lehrer
Not worth commenting on!!! O’Donnell, Schultz, Scarborough, Sharpton (I cannot speak the English language properly), Matthews (spits when he talks), etc., all Morons and Buffoons!!! MSNBC is dying on the vine and....to boot no one is watching!!! I say, let them rant and rave!!! With each word that comes out of their left-wing, liberal mouths, they fall further into the cesspool of permanent obscuity!!! And....Mika in the morning!!! A person cannot be dumber then that brainless and clueless, airhead is!!! Ooops, maybe Joe Biden is the only person in the universe dumber then challenged, little Mika!!! You think???
When Mr. Ed is yur headliner, yur skrewed.
If they want better ratings I suggest reruns of ‘Mr Ed’. The one from the 1960’s...the talking horse.
I miss the old MSNBC with Soledad O’Brien and the computer generated dude who hosted with her.
a dismal month for ODonnell, whose total viewership fell 22 percent in September, with the shows target 25-54 demographic dropping 35 percent in that period
