Carlson replaced at MSNBC

Quote:
NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - MSNBC on Monday canceled Tucker Carlson's daily show, temporarily replacing it with a campaign-focused hour anchored by NBC News chief White House correspondent David Gregory.

Carlson has had a daily program on MSNBC since June 2005 after the bow-tied anchor moved to the channel at the invitation of then-MSNBC president Rick Kaplan. "Tucker" never really found its footing in the ratings, either in late primetime or early evening. Carlson also has hosted CNN's "Crossfire" and PBS' "Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered." He will remain with the network as senior campaign correspondent after the show goes off the air Friday.

In its place will be "Race for the White House," hosted by Gregory, who will remain chief White House correspondent as well as fill-in host on "Today." Another hour of political news will be televised at 1 p.m. weekdays, anchored by NBC News' Andrea Mitchell.

The network also gave some tweaks to its primetime lineup, giving "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" other runs at 10 p.m. EDT and 2 a.m. EDT following its 8 p.m. original airing. The 9 p.m. show will remain hosted by Dan Abrams but be titled "Verdict With Dan Abrams." The network's documentary block will now air from 11 p.m.-2 a.m., all EDT.


Looks like MSNBC has decided quality trumps a bow tie.

I am so surprised. When I saw this article, the first thing I thought was that they were going to replace Keith. I'm pleasantly surprised.

I heard Tucker was going to be booted. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. [/sarcasm]

Good news Olbermann will be heard another hour. I miss him so often, maybe this will give me a better chance to hear his program.

Thanks for the info!

Tucker will probably show up as a part of McCain's campaign, with the promise of a job on the "inside" if McSame is elected.
