    MSNBC Starts Slow With New Hugh Hewitt Show.

    With the addition of Hugh Hewitt's new Saturday morning show, MSNBC appears to be betting on the long-term potential of drawing more viewers outside of its liberal core audience, even if ratings for the conservative commentator aren't initially great.

    Hewitt's Saturday 8 a.m. show only runs for 30 minutes, and although the network would not describe it as such, one longtime television executive called it a "trial run" for a potentially longer and better scheduled program. Hewitt reportedly angled for a more desirable evening time slot.
    Hewitt's first show was headlined by a meaty interview with CIA director Mike Pompeo, a good "get." Because the 8 a.m. time slot was previously occupied by MSNBC Live, the show does not have a high ratings bar to eclipse. In June 2016, MSNBC averaged 75,000 viewers in the time slot in the 25-to-54 demo prized by advertisers. On Saturday, Hewitt's show brought in 112,000 viewers, the network said not a bonanza, but still a year-over-year improvement.

    guess they didn't learn anything from Greta. This guy has got to be one the biggest partisan hacks out there. It's insulting to the other MSNBC host to bring on someone like this. The article got it right. He's Sean Hannity with glasses.

    Yeah, I will be skipping this one.

    And the way he smiles is creepy to me too.

    Sharpton's show ended a few years ago

    It was also pretty bad.

    I didn't even know he has a Sunday show...

    I don't watch it obviously.

    But the new one on Sat. morning - Velshi & Ruhle is quite good and very informative from a business point of view.

    And Joy Reid?? I LOVE HER...
    Thanks from the watchman and EnigmaO01

    Just checked, he's still on MSNBC, if you consider 8AM on Sundays as still on TV.

    And he STILL can't speak English.

    except they both each have different shows that they host as well. Not sure what that's about?

    Their Sat. morning is only 30 minutes long and it just deals with economic and business issues from a policy standpoint.

    I have not really watched either of their daytime shows.
