MSNBC Flips 'Last Word,' 'Ed Show'

Publish date:

MSNBC is shaking up its primetime lineup, moving The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell back to 10 p.m. while The Ed Show will now lead off the night at 8 p.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 24.

The Last Word moved into the 8 p.m. anchor spot after Keith Olbermann left the network last January, which set off a domino effect of schedule changes, including moving The Ed Show to from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., where Last Word aired originally.

The 8 p.m. hour has become more competitive since CNN moved Anderson Cooper 360 to the flagship hour, replacing the low-rated Eliot Spitzer show, In the Arena.
The Rachel Maddow Show is unaffected by the changes, and will continue to air in its 9 p.m. slot.
