Here’s One of the Ways MSNBC is Looking Beyond the Election

By Chris Ariens 

As the cable news networks look to a post-2016 election world, MSNBC has announced a new user-generated video-driven show.

In the same vein as Caught on Camera, Split Second Decision, as the new program is called, recounts real life events in which the subjects are forced “to make life or death judgments in real time.”

NBC’s Jeff Rossen will narrate the show which debuts Saturday, November 12 at 9 p.m. ET. MSNBC has been weening itself off the longrunning series LockUp. On many weekend nights, it has been airing repackaged editions of Dateline and another series called In Other News hosted by Lester Holt. That series, which is reminiscent of one of the earliest MSNBC shows, Time & Again, looks at how a major news story dominated coverage, casting a shadow over other news stories that would have otherwise been front page news.

Split Second Decision is produced by MSNBC and Gurin Co.
