The crew over here at the Viva Chuck Todd offices can't but help feel proud that someone we've been a big fan of for a while finally got her shot.
It was announced today that starting September 8th, Rachel Maddow will debut her own show at 9:00pm est/6:00pm pst replacing Verdict with Dan Abrams.
MSNBC network president, Phil Griffin said it best, "This just completes our prime-time lineup. Our lineup makes sense now." Griffin went on to dispel the assumptions by some that Rachel's show would have a significant left-leaning bias, "We’re hiring Rachel because she’s a smart person. Rachel goes far beyond politics. She’s an expert on military affairs. She was a Rhodes scholar."
We challenge Roger Ailes to get behind a microphone and laud the academic credentials of his prime-time lineup.
