Exclusive: Cenk Uygur Reacts to MSNBC Calling Off Their Search for a 10PM Show

f2img1.jpgMSNBC has decided not to find another show for the 10PM time slot. Our sister site, TVNewser talked to Keith Olbermann about the announcement:

The fact that the 10pm replay is more competitive now is obviously great news, but if a terrific opportunity for a new show presents itself tomorrow, management will move on it,” predicts Olbermann.

How does the host of the Young Turks, Cenk Uygur feel about this? You maybe wondering, what does it feel like being kicked out of line because the ride is closed down until further notice? (No we’re not talking about City Beat again.)

Uygur tells FBLA, “We’re just getting started. You can’t stop us, the best you can do is hope to contain us. So, Round Two of the MSNBC campaign is going to start soon. When the 10PM time slot does become available, it will be ours. We now take the role of heir apparent — the crown price of 10PM on MSNBC.

“The only thing that can prevent this is if we get an offer from another station in the meanwhile. CNN, Headline News, Comedy Central and HBO are obvious possibilities, but there are many others as well. Our audience is excited to bring this to the next level. So, this is not the end, it is the beginning. Ready or not, here we come!”

Where will the Young Turks’ show end up?
