2. I thought he was going to be on AFTER KO?
If this turns out to be true it will really ruin my day.

4. are they moving Keith to 9pm?
or are they gonna put him in Tweety's slot????

If they cancel him for Tucker, I will be totally pissed. I don't despise Tucker but damn, he's useless.

5. Tucker at 9pm according to MSNBC press release last month
Like the NYP never makes a mistake....LOL. But keep those emails going.

Here the pr link:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6902209 /

Haven't they been running the new lineup lately?

Matthews-Olbermann-Carlson-Scarborough ?

I think I would have noticed if Keef were missing...heh!

That's what I'm saying until further notice, heh!

11. I told them in my Anniversary Happy Gram
that DU was in meltdown over what I hoped was a typo in the NYPost! Only because I think they know how much we love them!!!

They may be enjoying the publicity, BUT I told them they better correct it on tonight's show...or no more ties! :sarcasm:

12. Ooh, no more ties! That's SERIOUS!
I sent some quiz questions with my anniversary wishes, since they seemed to be begging for 'em this week. Please, if y'all can think up a question, send one in, 'cause mine were pretty :crazy:.

7. I've been hearing 9pm all along too for Tucker--
maybe they've changed their minds? I would actually like to see them move him to 10pm--I think he could kick Aaron Brown's ass. I just don't see them getting rid of him-his ratings in the key demos are very good. It's not exactly like the Post is a reliable publication or anything though.

8. I just read this on General Discussion too
I've been hearing 9pm for Tucker. If MSNBC does this they will hear from me loudly and often.

I won't be quiet about it. KO deserves our support. I personally think this it either a misprint or an attempt to stir up trouble.

I lean toward the latter.

9. And maybe there is some wish-fulfillment fantasing in it too
His talent, his success, and for those in the industry still capable of appreciating it, his success in retaining his integrity - that's a lot to be jealous of. His politics are based on facts instead of administration propaganda. He makes a lot of people in the administration and in the media look very bad. He's clearly on the way up, and there are a lot of people who hate that.

10. I hope this is wrong... although I wouldn't mind if Keith moved to
7 p.m. in Tweety's spot.

13. I think 8 PM is the better spot - it's really the Prime Time plum
At 7 PM a lot of people are still in transit or involved in dinner or kid-related activities. I hope it's wrong too.

15. Not to mention 7 pm's a re-air of TDS !
MSNBC would be crazy to pit Keef against another like-mind, Jon Stewart!

I think Jon's re-runs kick Tweety's butt ! Geesh, I'm in a market that Judge Judy kicks the local news butt during the 6pm hour!

16. You're right -- I forgot about that
and that's the time I watch TDS. The regular time is past my bedtime.
