MSNBC Host Hugh Hewitt’s Show Comes to an End After Ratings Struggle

Conservative talk-show host to remain with the network as commentator

Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt announced the end of his MSNBC show on Saturday after a year on the air.

“This has been the last ‘Hugh Hewitt Show’ on MSNBC Saturday mornings,” Hewitt said at the end of this week’s show. “I’m remaining on the network as a contributor, I’ll appear as a guest on MSNBC shows and I will continue as a guest on ‘Meet the Press.'”

A veteran political commentator for TV and radio, Hewitt first joined MSNBC in 2016 amid the presidential election before landing his own half-hour show last June.

Right out of the gate, the “Hugh Hewitt Show” struggled to find a foothold in the ratings, regularly losing in the 8 a.m. Saturday timeslot to “Fox & Friends.”

“It’s been great fun to host this show, and I’ll see you on MSNBC again soon,” Hewitt said.
