Television Worth Watching

Rachel Maddow will debut her new television program tonight on MSNBC at 9pm ET, 8pm CT. Over the course of the 2008 election cycle, Maddow has parlayed numerous guest appearances on MSNBC into a one hour, five-days-a-week, broadcast of her own. She will continue to host the Rachel Maddow Show on Air America Radio.

Her unabashedly progressive views, coupled with a fearless 'tell it like it is' attitude, have made Maddow one of the brightest new stars among left-leaning political analysts. Her program will immediately follow MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann every evening. Now that should be two hours of really great political TV.  

The Nation recently published an interesting and insightful biography of Maddow which is well worth reading. The article gives some excellent background on the 26 year-old Rhodes Scholar for those not yet familiar with her career. 

ElectBlue encourages our readers to support progressive TV political analysis by making Maddow's show part of your 'must see TV'.
