At 5 PM ET, Ed Schultz welcomed viewers to his new (old) program, which returned to weekdays after a few months relegated to the weekends. Schultz may find himself on-air a few hours earlier than his old program, but based on the first show it will look very similar to his primetime effort.
“Good evening America and and welcome to the Ed Show live from New York, its five o clock eastern, let’s get to work!” Schultz said, leading into a long clip reel showing some highlights from his program.
On “Hardball,” Chris Matthews decided to close his program with a brief essay about… himself. Specifically, how his life experiences affected his worldview.
“Here on ‘Hardball’ you can expect me to discuss history as it relates to now, you can expect to hear me analyze what politicians are doing today with what I have seen other politicians do before, and you can expect me to fight for the causes that stirred me in my 20s, when passions rose, minds were set, and life missions accepted,” Matthews said.
