Trump nemesis Donny Deutsch just got some very bad news indeed. The failed TV host – he has had multiple shows canceled over the years just got more of the same.
MSNBC is canceling his new vehicle – a Saturday night talk show about politics. It was a dud to be sure and never found an audience.
But the vocal Trump critic bombed in record time lasting only thirteen seasons in his go-round. From Fox News:
After just 13 episodes, MSNBC has pulled the plug on “Saturday Night Politics,” a show hosted by Donny Deutsch, a staunch critic of President Trump.
The show never caught on with viewers, finishing far behind Fox News’ “Watters World” with Jesse Watters, according to The Hill.
It’s far from the first cancellation for Deutsch, whose CNBC show “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch,” was scrapped in 2008. His other shows were trashed in 2010, 2013 and 2015, according to TV Newser.
From The Wrap:
MSNBC has canceled “Saturday Night Politics With Donny Deutsch” after a 13-episode summer run.
The show first premiered in May and ran just shy of four months, with its final episode airing on Aug. 17. MSNBC will fill the hourlong Saturday slot with reruns of Chris Hayes’s weeknight show, “All In.”
Meanwhile, Deutsch will still make appearances on the network’s “Morning Joe” and “Deadline White House” shows, Deutsch tweeted on Thursday.
“Saturday Night Politics” marks Deutsch’s fifth canceled TV hosting gig. Prior to his MSNBC show, Deutsch played a comedic version of himself on USA’s “Donny!” until 2016, hosted CNN’s “(Get to) The Point” for a week in 2013, and led CNBC’s “The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch” from 2004-2008.
He also briefly hosted MSNBC’s “America the Angry” in 2010 but was pulled from the air following a segment criticizing the political and sports commentator Keith Olbermann.
