NBC Admits Mistake, Gives Chuck Todd Weekend Political Show


Because (a) they should have made him the Meet the Press host in the first place, and (b) nothing can be worse than the fifteen hours of prison documentaries they currently air, NBC has decided to give political savant Chuck Todd his own weekend show on MSNBC. The details of the show are still being worked out, but it would be wise to use a format as close to Meet the Press as possible, so as to prepare for Todd’s inevitable transition to the temporarily David Gregory–helmed Sunday-morning staple. They can even call it something similar, like Get Acquainted With the Press. Also, time should be set aside each week for Todd to show off his long-forsaken French-horn skills. These are our demands.
