Former CNN anchor T.J. Holmes, who left the network a year ago to join BET was back on cable news today, on MSNBC.

MSNBC tells us Holmes is doing some holiday fill-in work for them, today sitting in for Alex Witt.

Holmes’ hire by BET earlier this year was seen as a move the network was expanding its news presence. In April, the network announced Holmes would host a daily late-night conversation/comedy/current events program called “Don’t Sleep.” But in October, six weeks after launch, the show was scaled back to one night a week.

On Twitter this afternoon, Holmes thanked viewers for feedback adding, “Wasn’t perfect but hey, I’m rusty!”
