MSNBC star Rachel Maddow is reportedly set to take a hiatus from her prime-time show.

As The Daily Wire reports:


Starting this week, the liberal host will take a break from anchoring her nightly show in order to focus on other projects, according to multiple reports.

“The Rachel Maddow Show,” which airs at 9 p.m. ET Monday through Friday on Comcast-owned MSNBC, is the network’s top-rated show by far. The program is the most-watched cable news show outside of Fox News shows.

Maddow will announce her hiatus on Monday, and it will begin on Friday. A slate of several hosts are expected to take turns filling in for the host during her break.

The news of Maddow’s break from hosting comes after she signed a new contract with MSNBC in the summer, following reports and rumors that she had considered leaving the network, perhaps to start her own media company.

Maddow’s new contract includes paying the host $30 million dollars a year through 2024.

Maybe she has figured out she has been batting for the wrong team…

“The program is the most-watched cable news show outside of Fox News shows.”

Which isn’t saying much. In truth, her show is a long way behind a long list of Fox News shows.

For example……She could be rated number one, if she were rated with late-night comedy shows.

Aren’t the muppets filmed at OUR White House in the Oval Office?
