Donny Deutsch is hanging it up. Deadline reports the MSNBC TV show Saturday Night Politics is ending after four months.
Launched earlier this year, the new talk show featured discussions about current events. Deutsch will continue to appear on Morning Joe and other MSNBC TV shows.
It’s not that surprising Saturday Night Politics is ending. The short-lived MSNBC series earned fairly low ratings, averaging only 101,000 viewers during its run, according to Deadline.
See Deutsch’s announcement below:
With summer coming to a close, so does my season run on MSNBC w/ @SNPonMSNBC. I’m beyond grateful for all of your help in making it @MSNBC ’s highest rated Saturday night program EVER! So surreal! I’ll see you all on @Morning_Joe @DeadlineWH, and across MSNBC very soon.

What do you think? Did you ever watch Saturday Night Politics? Would you have watched more?
I watched it but thought he had no political savvy. When I heard him say on Morning Joe he would vote for Trump if Warren or Sanders won I knew his political leaning. He was successful in branding but unfortunately his show was not informative. It was obvious to me their is only one thing Donny loves and it is himself.
My pet peeve is when the host losses control of the guests. I think Donny is very intelligent but, as a senior citizen I have no patience when the host and the guests speak over each other. I tried to watch but, found it irritating. I believe his time slot was not the best. Unfortuntely, MSNBC has a few hosts that talk too much interrupting the guests. RUDE. I would not say Donny was Rude, just tried too hard. I pay SLING extra money for MSNBC CHANNEL but I cannot watch certain hosts. I watch another channel and catch up… Read more »
Once again, a very good program and host kicked to the curb before it even got a chance.
Loved the show, watched it every week. The guests were unguarded and the discussions were rich.
I watched the show each night that it was on the air and enjoyed it. I’m sorry to see it go. One less voice to fight the corruption in the White House.
I’m saddened Donnie’s show was canceled. We really looked forward to watching it. He was the only thing worth watching on Saturday night. Cone on MSNBC, give him another shot in a better time slot.
Loved the show and always enjoy Donny on manny joe. Very disappointed.
I loved the show as Donny had a vey honest take on Criminal Trump and is horrible admin and policies.I hope they will reformat another program for him he has very honest assessments about the current person sitting in the White House we need to hear.
I looked forward to the show since the other msnbc show were repeats og friday shows. Donny had a fresh take on the political stories of the week.
My husband and I both really enjoyed Donny Deutsch and Saturday Night Politics. While we did not think that some of his guests were that good we really felt that his points were “ right on”. With his branding sense his Wall was especially potent
Yeah I’m phased. That was one of my favorite route shows I watched every Saturday Night. With Donnies unique branding experience I think he brought about a lot of great information for Democrates to use in 2020 election. I hate the way now a days they only give you so many episodes and then kick you off. If that was the case it took Friends 4 Seasons to do ally get noticed. Look what happen with that. Don’t think there willing to take nearly any risk now a days with the unique talent and incite that Donnie brought. Sucks!!!
I LOVED it!!
I LOVED it!! He is awesome.
