MSNBC Extends Jen Psaki’s Weekend Show to Primetime

The former press secretary for President Joe Biden, Jen Psaki, continues to raise her profile at MSNBC. Psaki has hosted a weekend program since leaving The White House.

However, she’s about to head into a new day and time slot, as Psaki will soon be a fixture in MSNBC’s primetime line-up as her show expands to Monday nights. MSNBC announced that Inside with Jen Psaki will take over the Monday 8 p.m. time slot of Chris Hayes’ All In.

Hayes’ show has been “anchored by a rotating group of hosts” for the past year. The change will start on September 25th. Hayes will still anchor his show Tuesday through Friday, and Psaki will continue in her Sunday time slot at noon.

“[Psaki’s] expert on-air analysis and insights of the news driving each week propelled the show to finish Aug. as the most-watched cable news show in its time period,” the network said in a statement. 

“Since the show’s debut, she has interviewed numerous high-profile bipartisan lawmakers, including Gov. Chris Sununu, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Sen. Cory Booker, former Gov. Larry Hogan, New York Mayor Eric Adams, and more.”

The announcement follows the best ratings month for Psaki’s Sunday show since its launch in March. Inside with Jen Psaki prevailed in its time slot in August with an average of 931,000 viewers, topping FOX’s 922,000 and CNN’s 599,000 viewers at noon on Sundays.
