In leaving his 8 p.m. prime-time show, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz last night scoffed at the notion, advanced by Politico, that his new slot — weekend dinnertime, essentially — is a “relative no-man’s land” on cable.

Then Schultz appeared to concede as much, saying that’s why he’s going to “build those hours to the best hours in cable.” Should he accomplish such a thing, he’ll make the Politically Oriented Cable News Hall of Fame on the first ballot.
