No more Rita Cosby in prime time!!
Stephanie Miller just said that they're moving Tucker Carlson back to that time slot. I haven't watched it in a while, but if Rachel Maddow is still on that show, I say :woohoo:

4. She's still going to be on
Just in a later time slot where she's less likely to scare the children and animals.

3. I guess her being a racist fucktard had nothing to do with the move.
THAT BEEIATCH called African American voters - HOODLUMS.

THE BEEIATCH.

I hate her cow faced ass. May she never work in TEEV again.

AMEN.

5. Actually, Carlson is moving to 10:00, Scarborough is moving to 9:00.
But MSNBC is denying it now.

Primetime Moves At MSNBC: Joe At 9, Tucker At 10, Rita At 11

MSNBC is shaking up its primetime lineup next Monday, TVNewser has learned. Joe Scarborough is moving ahead an hour to 9pm, Rita Cosby is being pushed to 11pm, and Tucker Carlson is taking Joe's spot at 10pm.

The lineup change is intended to create a more seamless primetime lineup. Hardball with Chris Matthews and Countdown with Keith Olbermann have enjoyed ratings gains in recent months, but Countdown's viewers don't seem to stick around for Rita's crime segments.

So here's the new schedule: Scarborough Country at 9pm, The Situation with Tucker Carlson at 10pm, and Live & Direct with Rita Cosby at 11pm. Expect an announcement later this week...

14. No, Scarborough will be on after Olbermann, and Cosby is moving to
after Carlson. Olbermann stays where he is.

23. Actually, I set the TIVO for Olbermann only so that "they" know...
I know the watchmen keep track of what people TIVO, so I add my lone voice for Mr. Olbermann.

26. Makes sense
that Olbermann's viewers tune out Rita. But what makes MSNBC think his viewers will put up with Scarborough?

8. Loser roulette?
Doesn't matter who they put in that time slot if those are the only choices they have. They both are losers but at least, as the OP said, if they have Rachel on, Tucker is more bearable.

I don't like what he says but at least he says it in a voice that doesn't etch glass.

10. I'll bet Keith is pleased.
You can tell he barely gets " good evening Rita " out without barfing.

18. "but Countdown's viewers don't seem. . . . .
.....to stick around for Rita's crime segments."

Now that sentence made me laugh out loud.. "don't seem to".... all the juice meters must get whiplash from the massive power-shift AWAY from the tabloid graveler.

21. That made me laugh, too...
...as if Countdown's viewers will stick around for Scarborough's angry kill-'em-all segments.

22. Poor Tucker....
Soon he'll be on so late, that his competition will be hard-on pill infomercials and Adult Swim (I'm gonna stick with adult swim...).

27. They need a "Larry King" after Keith
not a partisan hackshill. I could see resurrecting Donahue or give Ron Reagan a chance to host a non-bloviating hour of interesting people, not strategists.

30. I e-mailed MSNBC...
...with suggestions! :D

>>>>>>>>>

I hear you are changing the lineup, so I'm offering a suggestion:

As a LOYAL Countdown viewer...who doesn't stick around for Rita...I think (and I'm SERIOUS) that you should get Phil Donohue back after Countdown. Cable TV ratings (for both MSNBC and CNN) fell because people like me want intelligent news and real debate about issues of importance. Keith Olbermann has never let go of REAL NEWS issues, even though it's presented in an entertaining way. I'm sure Rita Cosby is a nice person...but her show content is useless to my life. Even Ted Turner has noticed this about his old network, CNN. So talk to Phil...pay the cost...we Countdown viewers will stay tuned! :)

Sincerely,

XXXX

P.S. By the way...here in XXXXX, California, Hardball airs only at 2:00 p.m., 4:00p.m., and MIDNIGHT PST. It is NEVER on during prime time when I can watch. The ratings might go up if that were addressed. :)

32. UPDATE: Now it seems they're denying the schedule change
Some MSNBC employees say that the network is shaking up its primetime schedule, moving Scarborough to 9, Carlson to 10 and Cosby to 11. (See posts here and here.) But this afternoon an MSNBC spokesperson told TVNewser it's not happening. "There is no schedule change," he said...

33. Strange move for the network.



Conservatism is on its way out. Seems like they would want to move Phucker closer to the door.

34. Does she look like Ms. Piggy to you?
Her facial structure is weird. I mean I remember hearing Loretta Swit (from M*A*S*H) was the model for the character, but Rita has the same kind of face as Loretta Swit. (Didn't she even sue Jim Henson?) Not to be mean, but hey she looks like her (both Loretta and the Piggy.)
