Breaking: MSNBC Fingers Alison Stewart's 'Most' As Next to Go, With 'Tucker' Not Far Behind
— Thu, Nov 30, 2006 —

Exclusive

As Jeff Zucker weighs his options in restructuring NBC's Burbank operations, we hear MSNBC head Dan Abrams is readying the chopping block.

An insider tattles to us that there have been "lots of closed door meetings" regarding newlywed Alison Stewart's 3pm show The Most, which debuted in May. Obviously execs don't appreciate its worldly mix of news and entertainment: We're told to expect to see it cut next.

Meanwhile, a timeline is arising for the futures of Rita Cosby and Tucker Carlson. We already told you that Rita – who lost her own primetime show Live & Directwas getting the ax. Her exit from the building, we hear, is imminent. And as for Carlson, whose Tucker has been hanging in there with a downsized staff? A February cancelation announcement is scheduled, says our source. All of this on top of the impending series of layoffs expected at the news channel under NBC 2.0.

All of which, meanwhile, makes congratulatory staff memo sent out this week by Dan Abrams – where he lauds staffers for boosting ratings – an invitation to call him an ass. And make toupee jokes.

Looks like a few MSNBC anchors may be using Daryn Kagans ex-Fox PR guy to help them out.

I am so sorry to hear this! What are we going to get instead: "To Catch a Predator, Part 4,289, or "Lockup, Beverly Hills?" Yeesh!

Or how about a collection of KO's "Special Comments" assembled in an hour-long (or longer) special comment special?

So now TVNewser.com (official Motto: "We kiss NBC/MSNBC butt like no one else!) is claiming that you got played with this "false" tip, i.e, that you were set up. Now why would someone at MSNBC want to set you up? One too many snippy item about Olbermann? Too much ridicule of the MSNBC staff? Sour grapes on someone's part? And who is there to ridicule you even more by posting the tip? TVNewser, aka NBC/MSNBC butt-boy. Coincidence? Probably not.
