take Harry to lunch

Filed under: Doodling — TCA @ 8:01 pm

I’m still hoping that Harry Shearer will get the weekday morning time slot at MSNBC that previously belonged to the fired Don Imus.

“Harry does his homework and lets loose his opinion with no holds barred. His irreverence is akin to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who are actually latter-day versions of Harry, with significantly shorter resumes.” So says Linda Milazzo in a Huffington Post blog item.

Yes, indeed. The times they are a-changin’… But not at MSNBC. It’s likely that Joe Scarborough will replace Imus. Tedious. BORING!

However, there’s still a microscopic sliver of hope. NBC-TV is in the ratings basement. Their head programming honcho Kevin Reilly may be on the way out. Perhaps this purge will extend to MSNBC.

My advice to the next head programming honcho is: Take Harry Shearer to lunch. Ask Harry how to save NBC.

UPDATE: NBC Brings In Programming Help.
