Tucker Carlson Gets the Boot

Tucker Carlson got a little something extra in his paycheck this week, a pink slip.

Insiders tell TVNewser Tucker Carlson's 6pmET show Tucker is getting the axe, but Carlson stays on as a political contributor to all MSNBC shows at least through the 2008 election. The official announcement, expected tomorrow, will include details about who will replace Tucker at 6pmET as well as other political programming additions. Sources say the network is going to beef up its schedule with more NBC News talent.

In recent days, Jossip, as well as other blogs, ratcheted up the talk that Tucker would be replaced "for a new project." In its 33-month run, Carlson's show has had two names, four time slots and multiple formats. At 6pmET, it builds on its Harbdall lead-in on some days, but loses audience on others.

Carlson is expected to host the show through next week, with his new role and title to take effect March 17. We're told he'll also be reporting from the campaign trail. TV Newser, via Think Progress.

There's a rumor that Rachel Maddow might take his spot.

Ah, poor Tucker being a neo-con asshat is no longer the wave of the future.

Perhaps he can use his skills as something appropriate for a new job - like professional cat litter scooper.

Little twerp. He's lucky we don't stuff him in the locker on the way out.

Jess Wundrun: No such luck. It's going to be David Gregory.

Übermilf: Yeah! Especially his bow tie!

MWB's World: That, sir, is and insult to cat litter everywhere.

Dean Wormer: Ha! I think that Olbermann gave him a wedgie as a going away present.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator: Perhaps! He does seem to be a little light in his loafers.

FranIAm: Yes, he did so well on "Dancing With the Stars"!

Distributorcap: Wow! He's even gayer than I thought!
