David Gregory Resigns From Meet The Press!

David Gregory got the ax. Chuck Todd got one year to turn Meet The Press around or he'll be joining Gregory.

NBC executives want to keep the nation's longest running Sunday news program in the top. So in order to do so, they gave the host the ax. David Gregory, the host since 2008 is stepping aside.

GOP Sundays won't be the same without him. Although I won't miss him too much, his future from the network will be better. He can emerge on another network. Say if it was Loserville or CNN.

Who knows?

Gregory who was then the Washington bureau chief got the gig after Tim Russert passed away in 2008.

Gregory got the most press coverage during the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy, when that lunatic Wayne LaPierre was bitching about how guns could have save those 26 innocent people when that extremist killed them with an assault rifle.

Gregory brought a firearm magazine. He did violate a minor law in which it restricted him from bringing in a loaded weapon into the city of Washington, DC.

Chuck Todd will likely take the spot. We'll see if he has the guts!

CBS has gained grown with Face The Nation. Bob Schieffer is getting some of his best ratings ever on GOP Sundays.

Under Gregory's tenure as moderator, Meet the Press has significantly decline in ratings since 2008. In the final three months of 2013, the program came in third place for total viewers behind CBS's Face The Nation and ABC's This Week for the first time since 1992 and experienced the lowest ratings in the show's entire history among the key 25 to 54 viewing demographic.
