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, but expand to a two-hour format from 5-7 p.m. ET later this summer.
“I’ve got an awful lot of fish to catch between, you know, the summer and the end of the summer,” Schultz said.“Let’s not get carried away with this.”
As previously announced, the move is an expansion MSNBC’s live weekend programming.
“MSNBC will be expanding its weekend programming and this opens a big opportunity for The Ed Show and my brand,” said Schultz.“I raised my hand for this assignment for a number of personal and professional reasons. My fight on The Ed Show has been for the workers and the middle class. This new time slot will give me the opportunity to produce and focus on stories that I care about and are important to American families and American workers.”
“I’m thrilled for Ed and happy to be expanding our weekend programming,” MSNBC President Phil Griffin said in a statement.“It’s an exciting time for MSNBC, and I’m looking forward to having Ed’s powerful voice on our network for a long time.”
The first show of the weekend program will feature highlights from a town hall Schultz hosted at The Barrymore Theatre in Madison, Wis., on May 2. Schultz will also update viewers on what he’s been doing since signing off from his weekday TV show on March 14.
“I want to thank all the folks for staying engaged [during the break] and being on Twitter and Facebook and constantly asking questions,” he said.

Ed Shultz is always an excellent source of information.

You're funny, Kline. Really funny. How many more conservative women will he call slut now?

This is too easy. How soon we forget about Rush Limbaugh's behavior.
#5 May 11, 2013
No comparison. Limbaugh was bringing up the fact that Sandy Flake, a career college student, wanted free contraception and that she grossly exaggerated the cost of it ($3000) when it can be bought at a local Walmart for $9.
She was also propped up at a phony hearing by Nancy Pelosi anyway.
Angry Ed was just being hateful...as usual.
The reason he went off the air at 8pm was that O'Reilly's ratings tanked him, just like they did to Olbermann, and just like they will do Hayes.
MSLSD, the pr firm, can't compete in the ratings dept. anyway.

Did anybody notice he was gone?
#7 May 12, 2013
Apparently a lot did.

and how did rushbo conclude that Sandra was a slut?
what did he base his "opinion" on?
when did he apologize?
Ed apologized personally and on air.
"pills " limbaugh attacked someone without provocation and doubled down on his insults.
guess the right has a double standard as usual
#9 May 12, 2013
And your assertion is that the Left has no double standard? Really? Is that what you're going with?
#10 May 12, 2013
I think if she needed $3000 a year for birth control you could conclude that she was a slut.
#11 May 12, 2013
only if you have the morals of rush limbaugh.
#12 May 12, 2013
comparing Ed and rush-- the right definitely has a double standard.
but if you want to excuse rush for his crass behavior go ahead.
Ed admitted he was wrong and apologized.
care to show how rush handled his problem

Not taking either side. Just pointing out what every non-comatose observer should agree on. The double standard is alive and well in both Left and Right-wing camps. To point to one instance of it and attribute it to "the Right as usual" claims a "high road" under false pretenses. It's that "H" word again.
