I just read a few minutes ago that the show may be canceled entirely because almost nobody is watching it, unsurprisingly.

MSNBC's shows are among the lowest-rated shows on cable tv. FOX NEWS routinely has the highest-rated shows on tv.

And the two books that currently are, and have been for a long time, on the New York Times Best Seller list are:

"KILLING JESUS" by Bill O'Reilly who has his own show, "THE FACTOR" on FOX NEWS, and "THINGS THAT MATTER", by Charles Krauthammer a regular guest on "THE FACTOR" and other FOX NEWS shows.

Bill O'Reilly's previous best seller, "KILLING KENNEDY" also topped the New York Times best seller list, and was recently made into a movie starring Rob Lowe as President Kennedy.

Good riddance. They should never have hired him in the first place. He is a child who needs to grow up. His tirades before this should have convinced MSNBC that he should not be on the air.

Well, almost nobody watches his show anyway.

And the network loses money. That's why Microsoft finally pulled out and had their name removed from the network.

i don't know why NBS keeps pouring money into this losing proposition. I'm surprised that the NBS stockholders don't have them shut it down.

Which says a lot about the mentality of the viewing audience, if you get my drift. MSNBC has a lot in common with PBS in that regard.

So what you're saying is that the average American is JUST TOO STUPID to know what's good for them.

Keith Olbermann wannabe Alex Baldwin just needs to go away. No one is going to watch him anyway.

Nobody watched Olbermann either. That's why he just went away.

Baldwin is an arrogant jerk who thinks he has the right to treat people any way he pleases. How this moron got an acting career and a talk show is a mystery to me.
