MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” with Ed Schultz is moving back to weeknights, and will take over the first “Hardball” slot at 5:00 PM ET. “Hardball,” which air at 5 PM and repeats at 7 PM will retain the 7:00 PM slot. Schultz had moved to weekends in MSNBC’s continuing attempt to expand coverage.
“Ed Schultz is a force of nature and an important voice to the MSNBC audience. I can’t wait to have him back on weeknights,” Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC announced today.
“Chris Matthews and the Hardball team have been pulling double duty for years. This move will concentrate the ‘Hardball’ audience to one key time period and enhance the flow of our evening programming,” added Griffin.
The lineup changes begin Monday, August 26.
