MSNBC Shifts Daytime Lineup, Expanding Deadline: White House to Two Hours Among Other Moves

MSNBC's daytime lineup will see a shakeup starting August 19, the left-leaning cable news network announced today. The most prominent change among these is the expansion of Deadline: White House, hosted by former The View co-host Nicolle Wallace, to two hours. Deadline: WH will continue to start at 4 PM, but will now run until 6 PM. Wallace's show has been a strong ratings performer for MSNBC, frequently drawing ratings just south of 2 million viewers. Vacating the 5 PM slot is the Chuck Todd-hosted MTP Daily, which will now air at 1 PM. A new show hosted by Morning Joe First Look host Ayman Mohyeldin will also air in the 3 PM hour. These changes come amid an overhaul at MSNBC that included the exit of longtime anchor Chris Matthews and his later replacement by Joy Reid. The new afternoon lineup on MSNBC is as follows:

12 PM: Andrea Mitchell Reports
1 PM: MTP Daily
2 PM: MSNBC Live with Katy Tur
3 PM: Ayman Mohyeldin
4 PM: Deadline: White House
6 PM: The Beat with Ari Melber
7 PM: The ReidOut
