MSNBC has signed Chris Matthews to a new, long-term contract with the channel, TVNewser has learned.
As part of the new deal, however, he will be ending The Chris Matthews Show, a syndicated public affairs show produced out of the NBC News DC bureau. The final edition of the program will air July 21. The half-hour show typically aired on Sunday mornings, though not every local market carried it. The show has been produced by NBC since 2002.

Well, SOMEBODY has to clean the restrooms.
He was FIRED, make no mistake about that. The network, however, could not afford to admit it thus the “new deal inked”.....pisspants Chrissy is out.
Comcast to the rescue!!
He would have played his NBA card.
Chrissy Matthews is perfect at MSDNC..gets about 5 viewers per day, drones who salivate over his idiocy..preaches the Communist platform which is MSNBC..a perfect fit
Tingles’ new contract is incentive laden. He’ll get $100 everytime he accuses a white person of racism.
But why is “Hardbsll” still on the air? It’s ratings are horrible.

I think he is getting paid too much....
According to the article above Matthews doubled his audience. MSNBC had their best ever months recently. It hardly seems possible. But stranger things have happened...let’s see, in 1320 it rained herring in Balonia, Italy. So, I guess anything’s possible.
I hear that he got a million dollar contract. A dollar a year for a million years.
He’s as crazy as a bed-bug!
Just means NBC has a little more plunging to do in its' news commode.
We'll pay you to stop hosting that show?
I've thought about that, myself.
Paying him to stay off the air???
Why did they give him a raise?
You mean Chris Mathews was FIRED? I thought he was a lifer over at MSNBC.
>> Comcast to the rescue!!
No. He signed a long term contract. They canned his half hour Sunday morning show that absolutely nobody watched but Hardball will still be on. Bad joke that it is...
There are other incentives in his contract. Such as - $10.00 per viewer. At an average of 6.7 viewers per day he stands to make another $67.00 per day.
Did he get the coveted weekend gig like his friend Ed?
Why would anyone enter into a long term contract with a drunk?
That article was written during the election cycle. Their ratings are tanking now. CNN has gained on them
So he got 20 viewers instead of 10
Nobody was watching him-HA
Yeah! That “Martha Raye” mouth with all his drooling.
Here's one (complete with typos, but funny):
Who really c ares where NBC buries Chris Mathews ,,, he is nothing but a piece of dog poop ,,,,,,,,,,,
