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.
