Show Some Damn Respect for David Shuster & Tamron Hall, MSNBC (UPDATED)

MSNBC,

Show some damn respect for your anchors David Shuster & Tamron Hall. The ratings for whatever hours they host on MSNBC are higher than most of your other daytime shows have ever been.

How hard can changing “MSNBC News Live” to “MSNBC News Live with David Shuster” & “MSNBC News Live with Tamron Hall” be?

This should be an easy decision.

And, for the hour they host together now, "MSNBC News Live with David Shuster & Tamron Hall.

Show some respect. Add their names. They deserve it.

It's a no-brainer.


UPDATED (with the actual email I sent the President of NBC News & Chairman of MSNBC):
Mr. Griffin & Mr. Capus:

Show some damn respect for your anchors David Shuster & Tamron Hall.

The ratings for whatever hours they host on MSNBC are higher than most of your other daytime shows have ever been. They turned the lowest rated hour, 4pm, into the highest, and they were rewarded by having you pull that hour out from under them for another circus act.

And while you were rearranging MSNBC’s schedule, you didn’t even bother to re-name the hours they do host (as opposed to Chuck Todd’s & Dylan’s new shows). That was the least you could have done since you weren’t planning on giving them their own, actual shows.

How hard can changing “MSNBC News Live” to “MSNBC News Live with David Shuster” and/or “MSNBC News Live with Tamron Hall” be?

The hour they host together? You guessed it. "MSNBC News Live with David Shuster & Tamron Hall.”

This should be an easy decision. They’re workhorses. It's a no-brainer.

Show some respect. Add their names.

They deserve it.
