MSNBC Cancels Ronan Farrow’s Awful Show

February 19, 2015

I called this almost a year ago and frankly, I can’t believe he held on for this long.

Dylan Byers of Politico…

MSNBC pulls ‘Ronan Farrow’, ‘Reid Report’

In a bid to stem cataclysmic ratings declines and waning relevance, MSNBC has cancelled the daytime shows “Ronan Farrow Daily” and “The Reid Report.”

In their place, MSNBC will bring in Thomas Roberts to anchor a new daily two-hour block of news programming from 1-3 pm, a network spokesperson told the On Media blog. Roberts will stop anchoring Way Too Early, the 5:30-a.m. show that precedes Morning Joe.

Ronan Farrow will launch a new series of primetime specials, featuring in-depth interviews, and will continue to be a special correspondent across programming. He will also continue his partnership with the NBC News Investigative Unit…

Earlier this month, MSNBC registered its lowest full-day rating in nearly a decade, drawing an average of 55,000 viewers in the all-important 25- to 54-year-old demo. In January, MSNBC’s daytime ratings for January were down 20 percent in total and 37 percent in the demo when compared to the previous year. In prime time, total viewership was down 23 percent, while the demo dropped by 39 percent.

MSNBC fans should be happy about this news.

After all, Farrow is a privileged, straight, white male.
