MSNBC To Give 10PM Slot To Liberal Analyst Lawrence O'Donnell

Liberal activist and political commentator Lawrence O'Donnell reportedly will get his own show on MSNBC. O'Donnell will be another edition to the network's already staunch liberal primetime lineup which includes Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow.

"Lawrence O'Donnell is an incredible talent, who our audience has gotten to know throughout the years, most recently as Keith Olbermann's principal guest host on "Countdown." It's great to have another anchor of his caliber on the network," said MSNBC president Phil Griffin in a statement. "This makes us a bigger and better network."
