Now that Countdown with Keith Olbermann is in place at 8pmET and The Rachel Maddow Show is set at 9pmET, the New York Times’ Brian Stelter reports MSNBC is looking to add a new show at 10.
“It’s almost like we’re one personality away,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin told Stelter. Olbermann supports the move as well. “Losing the 10 p.m. replay [of Countdown] is a very small price to pay for a last piece to the puzzle.” Olbermann says. MSNBC insiders tell us there is nothing currently in development, but the network’s goal is to add a 10pm show when it finds the right host.
