MSNBC wised up and has decided to pull the plug on Rev. Al Sharpton’s show at 6PM.
Sharpton is being demoted down to a show on Sunday morning at 8AM, which is basically the Siberia of a TV schedule.
One would think that Sharpton would have his political action league protesting the peacock for the demotion. But, somehow MSNBC got Sharpton to buy in the demotion.
“I’m very happy,” he said Wednesday. “First, I can reach a wider audience of people who don’t get home by 6 at night. Second, I can now get the A-list guests and newsmakers I want. And third, a Sunday morning host is what I always wanted to be.
Wow.... Does the Rev really believe any of what he said? If he does, then NBC boss Andy Lack should be selling snow to Eskimos.
“I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.”
Sorry to tell you this Al, but if Martin Luther King worked at MSNBC, he defiantly would have a show in prime time.
Sharpton signs off from weeknight TV on September 4th.
