5. I know Greta was a purely business decision, but I can't imagine she attracts enough deplorables....

to make her show profitable. Joy had a daily show @ 2pm, but it was cancelled. Perhaps an evening slot would be the perfect fit for her.

9. Of course, she is FABULOUS

But then, she would outshine Toad, Tweety, Hayes, and Kornacki in the weekly afternoon and evening time slots.

So embarrassing to those men, whose agents may have more clout with the network.

I never watched cable news on Saturday -- until she was put in that time.She is my favorite - even over Rachel and Lawrence.

10. I love Joy Reid. But I like Chris Hayes a lot too.

I don't think Chris Hayes has a lot of clout. His ratings were low for awhile and it seemed like they were looking to replace him. They just didn't know who they were going to put in his time slot. Then he won an emmy and then his ratings went up. So he bought himself some more time.

He has a book out now, which will give him more heft.

...year. Joy, Lawrence, and Rachel are my favorites!!! Chris Hayes seems nice enough, but I just don't connect with him. And Tweety just rubs me the wrong way.

14. Hiring Greta shows you how out of touch the MSNBC suits are

No MSNBC regular watchers are watching her-and no Faux watchers are watching her. Her ratings are cratering-that's why she is being heavily promoted. Her show is on it's last gasp. Go Joy!! She is the real deal.

Last edited Sat Mar 25, 2017, 09:25 PM - Edit history (1)

to do on AM JOY. Because format rules the daily shows.
I like her half hour long panel discussions a lot.
She has more editorial leeway on the weekend show.
MSNBC lets her do whatever she wants there.
Breaking news interrupts the daily shows all the time.
I can take her there or leave her where she is now and still be very happy.

....got exposure to folks I didn't even know before, e.g., Malcolm Nance, Toure, Naveed Jamili, Jonathan Capehart, Karine
Jean-Pierre, etc, etc.

Have been watching CNN, and not MSNBC for that reason. Joy is one of the best in the business, and as of now, other than Maddow, they are getting their lunch eaten by CNN.

33. I think we're typical MSNBC evening fans at my house

On days with interesting news especially (which is most days now), we tune into MTP Daily. We can't get it off the channel fast enough when it's time for Greta. We may go to CNN, maybe local news, maybe turn it off. We may then come back for Hardball, or maybe not for some time.

If the excellent and delightful Joy were in that slot instead, it would be must-watch. Lots of evenings, we wouldn't leave until after Lawrence or even after the 11th Hour.

Surely that matters to execs?

Please, bring us JOY!

when it comes to Greta, I'd rather watch a test pattern.

(My favorite slur that I learned on here). I LOVE Joy Reid's straightforward, suffer no fools attitude. Greta is a terrible fit. Hopefully she won't last long.

38. I think I understand why they brought Greta on now...

and why they won't get rid of her even though her ratings are not-so-good.

She is a wingnut and she is still booking top-tier Republican guests that probably would not go on the other MSNBC primetime shows (e.g. Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, or Lawrence O'Donnell). She books the guests and they still speak quite freely with her, from what I can see (just like when she was on Faux). I have also noticed hosts like Hayes and O'Donnell using clips of her interviews with Republican guests to prove the Republican's corruption.

I still think her show is atrocious and I refuse to watch or to give her a chance. But, in the grand scheme of things, I guess she serves a purpose.

Cenk said as much when he left. That's why they love Joe Scar. He can get Republicans on his show, and that's why they love Greta. If you notice, she gets high ranking Republicans like John McCain.
