He's ba-ack!

And because Ed Schultz is returning to the Tee Vee Machine soon, we'll get way, way better programming on weekends. I don't know about you, but prison doesn't appeal to me.

For those who aren't in on the joke, on the nights that Rachel Maddow's program leads into MSNBC's "Lockup" shows, she's made it into a regular "thing" by offering up some well-delivered intro quips. I actually wait for her to go there before I turn off the DVR.

But back to Ed. His lead-in will be Karen Finney, whose show also debuts May 11, but from 4-5 p.m. ET. More information will be announced in the coming days.

Schultz's radio executive producer will be acting exec producer of his TV show. MSNBC:

We are proud to announce The Ed Show hosted by Ed Schultz will return to MSNBC starting Saturday, May 11 at 5 p.m. ET.

The Saturday and Sunday show will debut as a one-hour long program expanding to a two-hour format from 5-7 p.m. ET later this summer.

ed schultz msnbcNo more prison!

  • Yes it is a joke, one I feel is in bad taste! She should continue her work to fight for justice by going to her employers and at least suggesting replacing that show with others that don't exploit prisoners and the prison industrial system in the U.S. which is a stain on all of us. At the least she should not make lite of this obvious conflict of values this show represents with her show and the rest of MSNBC's "Lean Forward" message. Thanks!

  • She's joking about a show, not prisoner rights. It's a joke, not a statement.

  • I love Rachel and she is one of the best journalist on TV, but given the fact she used to be a prisoner rights advocate, her light hearted joking about the vile prison exploitation show her show is a Friday night ratings lead in for is disgusting and disappointing! I'm glad that Ed is back. I hope a lot more people can catch his show. He's a tireless advocate for the working American.
