MSNBC said today that it is moving The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell back to its original 10 PM ET/PT slot Monday-Thursday. That’s where it debuted when the show premiered in September 2010 before it was switched to 8 PM in January, and the Ed Schultz-hosted The Ed Show was moved to 10 PM. Now Ed Show will move back to 8 PM. “This move will strengthen the flow of our programming throughout the evening,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in a release announcing the move. “As the name implies, The Last Word belongs at the conclusion of our programming day, thoughtfully wrapping-up the day’s political dialogue. Ed’s passionate voice is a perfect kickoff to primetime at 8 PM.” The Rachel Maddow Show remains in the 9 PM slot.
