MSNBC Has Canceled ‘Ronan Farrow Daily’ And ‘The Reid Report’

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC program Ronan Farrow Daily and Joy Reid’s The Reid Report have been cancelled due to disappointing ratings.

Ronan Farrow Daily occupied the 1 PM time slot with The Reid Report as its closing act. Both programs premiered in February 2014 and lasted a little less than a year on the cable news network before their cancellation:

The network will move “Way Too Early” host Thomas Roberts to the 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. timeslot, where he’ll host a news show. The cancellation of both Farrow and Reid ends MSNBC’s year-long effort to make a hybrid of news and opinion work in the afternoon.

Audiences didn’t respond: Ratings for both hosts languished from their respective launches a year ago, with Farrow’s performance being worse than Reid.

Neither Farrow nor Reid will be leaving MSNBC altogether. Farrow will stay on at the network to host a series of primetime specials, and Reid will stay on as a contributor.

Here is a look back at Ronan Farrow’s premiere episode. He is Ronan Farrow. He was here daily, but not anymore.
