“MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY” TO DEBUT ON MSNBC SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 10AM-NOON ET

NEW YORK, NY—February 1, 2012—MSNBC Contributor, author and Tulane Professor Melissa Harris-Perry will debut her eponymous weekend program, “Melissa Harris-Perry,” on Saturday, February 18 at 10 AM ET. Melissa’s show will be live from 10a-noon ET both Saturday and Sunday.

“Melissa Harris-Perry” will focus on national politics and will explore the intersections of culture, art and community issues that go beyond the beltway. A panel and guest-driven conversation featuring penetrating political analysis and humor, the show will continuously challenge the definition of “politics” and will push the boundaries of what we know, how we know it, and where we get our information.

Find Melissa on Facebook at Facebook.com/MHPShow, and get the conversation going now on Twitter at @MHPShow. More original “Melissa Harris-Perry” content will also be available soon on MSNBC.com.

With the addition of Melissa to the MSNBC weekend roster, the Saturday and Sunday schedules will run as follows: “Up w/Chris Hayes” will air 8-10 a.m. ET, “Melissa Harris-Perry” will air from 10 a.m.-noon ET, and “Weekends with Alex Witt” will air noon-2 p.m. ET (as well as 7-8 a.m. ET on Saturdays).

  1. I thought “Later w/ Melissa Harris-Perry” was a good idea for the title. That way the weekend lineup would be “Now and Later.”

  2. So it’s going to be like the other msnbc shows UP and Now?

  3. Josh: “Now” is Alex Wagner’s show on weekdays. I think you mean “Up”… so that means MHP’s show would be “Down”? 🙂

  4. Yeah, that was a slip up. But seriously, I hate when networks just give the show the same name as the host. At least with Maddow it’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” and not just “Maddow” or “Rachel Maddow.” That kind of naming scheme works for daytime talk shows but not for cable news.

  5. ^^^ It sounds like MHP might have a more cultural emphasis than UPw/Chris. I’m looking forward to the show.

  6. Trump and Romney look suitably ridiculous standing together. Putting Ann there is just sad.

  7. Ah crap..wrong thread again.
