Joe Scarborough might get Imus' job on MSNBC
Ever since Don Imus made his little, um, faux pas a while back, viewers have been wondering who will eventually take over his morning slot on MSNBC. Right now they have a rotating group of hosts, including Joe Scarborough, David Gregory, and Jim Cramer, but several execs (including network GM Dan Abrams) have been impressed by Scarborough.
Right now Scarborough hosts a nightly show, Scarborough Country, at 9pm after Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Scarborough will again host the morning program next week, and a decision about a permanent host should be made very soon.
Hmmm...I gotta say, does it really make a difference? It would be great to get a good host in there and MSNBC should try to get the best, but if they take Scarborough out of the nightly lineup, what will they put in there? I would assume more "Doc-Block" taped features. Or would they put another show in there after Olbermann and leave the documentaries at 10pm?
I hear Rosie's available...
