*It looks like that the fill-in work he’s been doing lately on MSNBC is going to pay off for Rev. Al Sharpton.

According to TVNewser, Cenk Uygur, who holds down the weekday anchor spot at 6pm may be replaced by Sharpton who’s hosted the hour for the last two weeks.

This past week, the 6pm hour was second, to Fox News, in  25-54 adult viewers Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

On the other hand, insiders say Uygur will stay MSNBC in some capacity. His site, The Young Turks, says Uygur has been on vacation and will return Monday.
