    Chris is too nerdy for prime time, people just want to relax when they get home from work, not get sucked into some deep debate, reason Olbermann and Schultz were successful at that time slot is cause they gave people straight talk

    Successful? Is that why they got fired?

    Cheryl Lynn:: Right on!! I always said that Chris was copying Rachael down to her intonation, speech patterns, humor…it was incredible …i always thought he was a gay, trying to emulate a lezbian…

  • CB

    Should have moved Rachel to the 8:00 and LOD to 9:00 the Chris at 10:00. I wouldn’t be surprised if that doesn’t happen down the road.

    “reason Olbermann and Schultz were successful at that time slot is cause they gave people straight talk”

    And look where their ‘straight talk’ got them……the unemployment line.

  • Raz

    If MSNBC really belived in itself, they would put Racheal Maddow against Bill O.

  • Fields

    Never heard of CNN’s The Point show, so I went to for more information on it, but I could not find anything on it. Oh I find it on the tv schedule but when I clicked on the hyperlink for the show, nothing happened. CNN is really behind this show, NOT.

  • moncon

    They won’t put Maddow there because her numbers will go the way of Olbermann and Schultz. I won’t even put Hayes in the mix since he is irrelevant just by way of his numbers. I watched MSNBC before even knowing Fox was out there. Then the tone just turned on that channel to one of hate towards anyone with a differing view.

  • BooBoo

    Ut oh: Day three, Wednesday, down even more. He’ll be come within 90 days. He’s a freak, just to look at.

  • chris

    Bravo MSNBC for bringing in Poindexter to host the 8 p.m. slot … It’s game over MSNBC so turn out the lights … may i suggest putting on reruns of the Waltons and you might drive higher viewership!

  • doomsayer2013

    It won’t be long and becks shows will be higher than msnbc. I can’t imagine comcast keeping these losers at msnbc.

  • HLJ

    Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow could be twins. He,she and she, him; no difference. MSNBC is dropping fast, and the gays are the only one’s watching.
    Mainstream gay media channel.

  • BigSky

    Schultz isn’t out at MSBHO, he’s just been relegated to the weekends where no one will watch him among the “Lockup” marathons.

  • mary

    I thought the first show was scary. His intensity was over the top. Way to intelectual. Reminds me of Sheldon on big bang theory. A far cry from Ed. I probably won’t watch or record.

  • James Kobel

    Chris Hayes is a scumbag last Memorial Day he blatantly said he doesn’t feel comfortable calling fallen soldiers heroes he deserves this crash and burns he will go down even faster then Ed Schultz
