Someone needs to reprogram the spambots raving about MSNBC’s “Ed Show” to limit their tweets to weekends. Special White House guest Ed Schultz announced tonight that he’s moving from his prime 8 p.m. slot for weekend afternoons. That’s a good thing, though; Schultz says he lobbied for the gig, as it will give him more time to spend among The People™ where he belongs.

Ed Schultz moving to weekends on MSNBC. He was upbeat, but that’s not exactly a promotion. Awaiting the backstory.

Yeah, “upbeat” is the first word we’d use to describe Ed Schultz.

Remember when Ed Schultz called a report he was losing his time slot “just media garbage.”…

What I told @cjr recently about Ed Schultz: when MSNBC rattles off its big brand names, they don’t mention him much.

From last year: MT @jpodhoretz: O’Reilly RERUN of show 3 hrs earlier beats Ed Schultz by a margin of 3-to-1…
