Skip to comments.MSNBC Shakeup: The Cycle, Alex Wagner, Ed Show Canceled — Brian Williams to the Rescue
Posted on 07/31/2015 3:44:19 PM PDT by Mount Athos
Shows being canceled outright include The Cycle, a multiple-host show similar to Foxs The Five, Now with Alex Wagner, and The Ed Show.
Alex Wagner is expected to remain with the network as is Ari Melber, one of the co-hosts of The Cycle. However, TV Newser reports that Ed Schultz, Abby Huntsman, Toure, and Krystal Ball are out.
The Ed Show, which aired at 5pm, will be replaced by a new hour-long program at 5pm hosted by Chuck Todd. Also coming to the networks rescue is disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams, who was pushed out of his job at the Nightly News in February when it became clear he had repeatedly exaggerated some of his reporting from Iraq and New Orleans (after hurricane Katrina).
MSNBCs ratings hit an 8-year low in May.
The networks decline is being blamed on the heavy focus on progressive commentary over straight news. A Pew Research report published in 2013 found that MSNBC was 85% commentary and 15% factual reporting.

truncated title to fit
Finally! But it still took them 2 years after the Pew poll to make any changes. And Brian Williams....seriously?
YES-man fired..... DUH-man to the rescue..
Sgt. Schultz is now free go go back to ND to continue shooting his own dogs.
The puppy-saving-hero Williams to MSNBC? They deserve each other.
We’ll miss Yall, buh bye!
Well there’s always the Mr Ed reruns... Oh wait, thats Wilbur’s horse but the MSNBC one is a horses ash.
As long as you keep subscribing to cable and satellite, you are still funding MSNBC, and other left-wing channels.
It doesn't matter if just 1 person is watching MSNBC. They are still getting paid.
So dump your cable/satellite and join the streaming revolution. Buy a good antennae for local channels, and buy a Blu-Ray player, Roku, Chromecast, or Apple TV and get a-la carte channels.
both of Ed’s viewers are reportedly despondent over the announcement.
Special Ed is toast? Say it ain’t so! What are the moronic college kiddies going to watch?
MSNBC has not figured out that you can’t make chicken salad out of chicken s**t. No matter how they try to cut it, it is still the same old left wing bloviators.
Fail, fail, fail, and rush in and fail.
The real cool part is..... turned off my sat dish TV in november of 2008..... don’t remember seeing any of these petite pancreas pedaling presstitutes lies since, shy of reading here and drudge.........
Stay Safe...hope yer well.
They are pulling his program? Ohhhhhh Noooooos!
