Al Sharpton Wants to compete with "Meet The Press."

With his MSNBC weekday show cancelled, Sharpton will be moving to Sunday morning.

Sharpton told the Daily Beast:

  • “The reason 8 a.m. works for me is that it’s early enough for all the church crowd to watch before they go to church.” Sharpton said his goal is to compete with NBC’s Meet the Press, CNN’s State of the Union, Fox News Sunday and other such programs to make and break news—with guests as diverse as Obama administration Cabinet officials and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z—although that newsy ambition might be hampered by his plan to tape the show on Fridays rather than do it live on Sundays.
