MSNBC Cancels ‘Dr. Nancy’

Breaking: TVNewser has learned MSNBC has canceled “Dr. Nancy” the NoonET health/medical show hosted by Dr. Nancy Snynderman.

The cancellation of “Dr. Nancy” is yet another daytime programming move by MSNBC, which has fallen to 4th and, on some days, 5th place in the daytime ratings. Last week, the network announced it was moving Dylan Ratigan from two hours in the morning (9-11amET) to one hour in the afternoon (4pmET), beginning next month.

The Ratigan and Snynderman shows premiered the same day, June 29.

NBC’s White House correspondents Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie will begin anchoring a 9amET hour next month.

Dr. Nancy’s final show was actually last Thursday. Since then, the NoonET hour has, and will continue to be, a traditional news hour, with a rotation of anchors. Dr. Snyderman continues as NBC’s chief medical editor.
