I just felt the need to start doing these, since nobody else is, at least each Sunday (the show is also on Saturday as well) when his new MSNBC show is on from 7-9 AM CST.

If you have not watched it, or think there isn't any good news programs on (and you wouldn't be wrong in thinking that) you are missing out. Basically the show is as simple as you get. Chris has on four guests for two hours, a couple shorter interviews throughout, and they just talk about a handful of topics. They actually give a topics an extended period of time and not just a couple minutes.

The best example of this format was the weekend Muammar Gaddafi was killed. They went to a live feed from Libya that wasn't translated yet. Breaking news. One of the panel members starts to translate in real time and then 3 of the four people break into a conversation in Arabic.

See his guests on to talk about Libya could speak the language and were actually from the region, not just a bunch of "white" folks like myself that don't really know what we are talking about.

Heck I went to a blog of a conservative he had on the show a few weeks back and the guy said something like, "I wasn't sure what to expect, since Chris is a liberal. But we actually had an adult conversation. It was refreshing."

So below the fold enjoy Up with me, so I don't have to watch it by myself :).

His guest this week include:

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN); Bob Herbert (Formerly of the New York Times); Melissa Harris-Perry (MSNBC); Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
