Hayes will continue to host his show, which marked its 10-year anniversary in April, in the primetime slot from Tuesdays to Fridays. The network has filled Mondays on his show with a rotating series of hosts over the past year as Hayes embarks on other projects, including a podcast and live events.
Psaki’s show debuted March 19 and won its time slot among cable news shows last month. Among its recurring features is a segment called “Weekend Routine,” in which she shadows lawmakers and other notable figures throughout their usual routines.
Inside with Jen Psaki also streams on Peacock the day after its linear debut.
Last year, Rachel Maddow reduced her regular MSNBC show schedule to just Monday nights, with Alex Wagner filling the Tuesday to Friday slot. Maddow’s show last month was the most-watched regularly scheduled cable news program.
Psaki joined MSNBC after serving as President Joe Biden’s first White House press secretary. She is among a number of former White House officials to transition to a TV gig following their tenures, with Nicolle Wallace, former communications director for President George W. Bush, hosting on MSNBC in the late afternoon and Symone Sanders, former chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, headlining a weekend show. Kayleigh McEnany, former press secretary for Donald Trump, co-hosts Outnumbered on Fox News, while Dana Perino, Bush’s former press secretary, is a Fox News co-anchor and co-host of The Five. Trump’s former director of strategic communications, Alyssa Farah Griffin, is co-host on The View.
