MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show starts weekly, starting in May

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show starts weekly, starting in May

The new schedule has a sense of the end of the MSNBC era, as much of the channel has been built around Maddow for more than a decade.

CNN mentioned Last August, when Madhu signed a new multi-year deal, she was planning to move from daily shows to weekly shows.

Sources said it will move to a more weekly format in 2022 – but MSNBC and Maddow did not confirm that at the time.

Then, in January, Maddow announced a “hiatus” from her prime-time show so she could work on other projects, such as podcasts and potential TV series.

This was followed up with filming her new decade in August: Arranging a production via NBC, such as releasing a news business of entertainment-show deals that sprouted all over Hollywood.

Maddow returned from her hiatus Monday night and told viewers about the new schedule, which she said would provide “more time to work on some of this other stuff I’m cooking for MSNBC and NBC.”

It said it will host Monday through Thursday nights for the remainder of April, then shift to once a week in May.

She also told viewers that she would be back for “big news events” such as the run-up to the election.

During the hiatus, MSNBC continued to call 9 p.m. “The Rachel Maddow Show” while hosting alternatives like Ali Velshi.

But an MSNBC spokesperson said that starting in May, the watch will be called “MSNBC Prime” on Maddow’s no-nights.

The network won’t name a four-night-a-week alternative for Maddow right away: The spokesperson said 9 p.m. will have rotations of hosts on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights.
