*If it’s Friday, it must be skit-day on MSNBC‘s “The Cycle.”
Ok, so what to do? What to do? Well, it looks like they decided to recycle a skit from a decade-old “Dave Chappelle Show.”
Yep, we’re talking about the classic “racial draft” that Chappelle and company came up with back in the day. On Friday, it came back to life with Toure’ as the host along with MSNBC personalities Krystal Ball and Joy Reid who drafted various celebrities into their respective races.
*It’s only been one week since Joy Reid and Ronan Farrow debuted their new shows on MSNBC…but it wasn’t a good one in terms of ratings.
According to TV Newser, their respective shows at 2 p.m. ET and 1 p.m.ET lost ground as compared to last year.
“The Reid Report” averaged 286,800 total viewers and 63,200 viewers in the coveted A25-54 demo, per Nielsen. Compared to the same week last year with “News Nation with Tamron Hall” at 2 p.m. ET, “The Reid Report” was down -8% in total viewers and -38% in the demo.

Reid began with domestic politics and the annual National Governors Association conference in D.C., with Crist, a Democrat and Hutchinson, a Republican, on to discuss President Obama and Vice President Biden’s remarks at the conference and the reaction from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Robinson visited the show to promote Monday’s broadcast of BET Honors.
*As a writer and journalist for most of my adult life I have made it a habit to watch black journalists practice their craft at the highest levels of the game, no matter their point of view and no matter their politics.
It just does my heart good to see the very best be the very best. So, when it came to MSNBC’s Joy Reid I was in virtual hysterics. This sister has been working it out for some time now and his finally getting her just due with her new show, “The Reid Report”, scheduled to debut Monday, February 24 at 2pm.
She spoke with urban media pioneer Lee Bailey to discuss her new show, and her take on race in America. What? You thought we’d get the chance to interview Joy Reid and not talk about race? You thought wrong.
