Rev Al Replacing Cenk at 6p on MSNBC? Sources say...


Wow, it would be really shitty if they dumped this on him while he was on vacation, but I've really enjoyed Al the time he's been on, other than his inexperience with the teleprompter. He's a smart man, he'll catch on (unlike another daytime anchor ::cough:: Andrea Mitchell ::cough::). Nia TVMewser.

Cenk Uygur was thrust onto the MSNBC schedule in January, when Keith Olbermann‘s departure set in motion several host changes on the progressive channel’s lineup.

Now TVNewser hears Uygur may be moved out of the 6pm hour, possibly to be replaced by Al Sharpton. When the host changes happened earlier this year, the 6pm hour was simply known as “MSNBC Live,” a telling sign that MSNBC was trying out Uygur.

Sharpton has hosted the 6pm show for the last two weeks. This past week, the hour was second, to Fox News, in A25-54 viewers Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Insiders tell us that Uygur will remain a part of MSNBC in some capacity. His site, The Young Turks, says Uygur has been on vacation and will return Monday.
