    So... where is Thomas Roberts? Has he officially been axed from NBC/MSNBC? If so, that is very disappointing news. I thought they had big plans for him at one point...

    Anyone think it’s somewhat cruel to have Ayman and Yasmin anchor so late in the day around the time they typically are getting ready for bed?

    Thomas anchored for 2 hours after Alex. I am wondering if Thomas might get the Saturday evening shift: I thought they were expanding both weekend nights until 9

    Ayman show is apparently called "The Breakdown" but not logo' d I wonder if it will be a slow roll out kinda like the The Point was. Yasmin's is being called the "Lets Go Beyond" not 100% sure on hers. But Ayman and others have all been calling his show The Breakdown.

    Only this week for the President's trip to Asia. They made the same call when he was in the middle east due to time changes and his schedule being off the standard-EDT time zone. Watch for it to return to 5AM next week.
