4. Maddow is the only MSNBC show that is consistently good.
It's entertaining, factual, informative, and it has great guests.

Olbermann is better now that he's dropped the 30-minute entertainment portion, although the poetry readings on Fridays are a snoozer. I realize some people really like that part of the show, and it is at the very end so it works out fine for those of us who aren't interested.

Tweety's show can be shrill at times, as can Tweety, and his annoying and rude habit of not SHUTTING UP so people he asked a question of can actually answer it sends me running for the remote.

Ed Shultz is pretty good, he's just not on at a great time for me.

Dylan Ratigan is also OK, but I watched David Shuster more often in that time slot.

Morning Joe? Blah. Mica should just sit on Joe's lap and rub around on him, she's just there for the visuals. They could drop the pretense of being a news/talk show and just have everyone sit around and talk about Joe. You know, how handsome he is. How smart. How entertaining. How he should be President. That kind of stuff because naturally EVERYONE is interested in Joe. :eyes:

MSNBC is going to run their cable network into the ground. But what would you expect from a network that would cancel good shows like Medium, Southland, My Name Is Earl, and others to make room for an hour of Jay Leno every night? FAIL. Most could have told the idiots making that decision that the idea sucked feces, but they did it anyway and cost the network a ton of money. Good choice.

Just like the choice to suspend David Shuster. Good talent is hard to find these days, just look at the people still on NBC properties for proof:

Andrea Mitchell - really? Sleeping with the guy who helped lead the country into recession, yet no disclaimers on the air about the conflict. Hmmm...

Luke Russert - :rofl: Enough said.

David Gregory - a right wing partisan hack if ever there were one. The big goon would be better suited for a clown at the circus, although that would be a challenge too I suspect.

Jim Cramer - Wrong 100% of the time. Gives out bad advice 100% of the time. People, yes you will lose money if you listen to this screamin' idiot.

Chuck Todd - Another loser. He and Gregory get off on promoting the right every chance they get. Another boring snoozer. Personality of road kill. No, sorry, road kill would be more interesting.

I think everyone gets the idea.
