Could Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Take Over Today's Sunday Show?

MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski may be bringing their brand to NBC's Sunday edition of Weekend Today, according to the New York Post.

“They made a big play for ‘Sunday Today’ and ‘Meet The Press,’ but Turness is not inclined to dump [‘MTP’ host] David Gregory,” one source noted.

Giving them “Sunday Today” could be seen as a compromise — or an interim step, the source added.

Reportedly, the discussions are ongoing and nothing has been decided.

Morning Joe already has a connection to NBC's morning show. Co-host Willie Geist appears on Today and is reported to be a contender for Matt Lauer's spot when Lauer decides to move on.

The Today show must be DESPERATE to go anywhere near those 2 assholes, & that's putting it nicely.

Can only bear Joe/Mika for brief periods during the week, if I like a certain guest only. Really do not want to see them on weekends. Joe is so in love with himself and just talks too much.

Mika lost her journalistic creds long ago with some of her innane comments, adoring looks at Joe (looks like Nancy Regan staring at Ron), and posing in a dress leaning back with one leg high in the air while Joe looks "cool" next to her. UGH

I actually liked watching them when I had premier cable. I went back to basic so I don't get the all news stations. In some ways, it is a good thing. I have gotten away from people telling me what to think.
