Episodes of With All Due Respect to Air on MSNBC Starting January

Screen Shot 2015-12-07 at 6.48.15 AMOn Monday morning’s episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann announced that their Bloomberg show With All Due Respect will be officially reairing weekdays at 6 p.m. on MSNBC beginning January. Several media outlets reported on the potential move weeks ago, and the coauthors of Game Change announced the decision this morning.

The show will continue to air in its 5 p.m. EST time slot weekdays on Bloomberg and then immediately afterwards on MSNBC. The 6 p.m. slot was vacated this year by PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton.

Morning Joe cohost Willie Geist said that With All Due Respect will begin airing on MSNBC “right as the campaign reaches its fever pitch.” He compared the show’s format to ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption.

“We call it homage,” said Halperin. “John and I talk about politics not unlike what happens on this program,” referring to Morning Joe.

“Will you have us on?” joked cohost Mika Brzezinski.

“We’ll have you on regularly. Because sometimes at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. eastern time you guys have stuff you want to say and you don’t want to wait twelve hours.”

NY Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman originally reported that the talks were a part of MSNBC’s desire to shed its liberal image.
