Chuck Todd is being demoted.
His daily Meet the Press show is being taken off TV and moved to the network’s streaming service exclusively.
Todd can’t be happy about this.
Chuck Todd’s ‘Meet The Press Daily’ To Move From MSNBC To Streaming Platform NBC News Now
Meet the Press Daily with Chuck Todd will move from MSNBC to the network streaming service NBC News Now.
Starting on June 6, his daily show will stream as Meet the Press Now, marking the latest effort to expand the offerings on the free platform.
Todd’s Meet the Press Daily, also known as MTP Daily, had aired at 1 PM ET each day, and will move to 4 PM ET on NBC News Now. Chris Jansing will take over the 1 PM hour starting on May 26 with MSNBC Reports.
The network also announced that senior investigative and consumer correspondent Vicky Nguyen would join Morgan Radford, NBC News correspondent, as co-host of NBC News Now Live from 11 AM to 1 PM. Correspondent Aaron Gilchrist will anchor NBC News Now Live from 2 PM to 4 PM…
The one-hour MTP Daily has been trailing its cable news rivals in total viewers and the 25-54 demo. It averaged 681,000 total viewers in April, according to Nielsen. Fox News’ America Reports has won the slot, drawing an average of 1.6 million over its two-hour time frame, while CNN posted 776,000 for CNN Newsroom with Ana Cabrera.
No one seems very upset about this decision.
Oof. Can’t believe they moved Chuck Todd to NBC Plus.

Finally, some good news: Chuck Todd no longer has an MSNBC show. His weekday show has been relegated to NBC’s streaming service, where no one will ever have to watch it. Now let’s get his “both sides” ass removed from Sunday morning’s Meet The Press!

Todd better hope NBC’s streaming service does better than CNN’s.
