Melissa Harris-Perry’s MSNBC Show Debuts Tomorrow

Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC Show Debuts Tomorrow

I’m sure many of you would like a reminder that Tulane professor, writer, social ciritc and media pundit Melissa Harris-Perry’s new weekend MSNBC show called Melissa Harris-Perry (granted not the most original title), will make its long awaited debut on the cable news network tomorrow, starting at 10AM (9AM Central).

The two-hour show, which will air on Saturdays and Sundays, according to the network “will focus on national politcs and will explore the intersections of culture, art and community issues that go beyond the beltway. A panel and guest driven conversation featuring penetrating political analysis and humor, the show will continuously challenge the definition of “politics'” and will push the boundaries of what we know, how we know it and where we get our information.”

In an article about the show earlier this week in the N.Y. Times, Ms. Harris-Perry revealed that the network orginally offered her a five day a week show, but she turned it down due to her teaching commitmemts at Tulane, and because she didn’t want to be separated from her husband and daughter who will travel with her to N.Y. every weekend when she does her show.

I’m sure many of you will be watching, although I have a feeling that Cornell West, who publicly slammed Harris-Perry recently, won’t be a regular veiwer iof the show. Hater!

Just in the name of fairness.. Melissa Harris-Perry slammed West FIRST back in May 2011 with a very mean spirited article for The Nation. I was surprised he waited that long to respond.


Great Show!!! I love your work.

Watching your first show! Excellent start. Gold stars awarded for being firm but polite as the republican, with their usual babble, tried to talk over you.

Interesting to hear the discussion on "Daddy Dearest" Looking forward to your continued success.
