MSNBC rips off Fox News with it's brand new show called "The Cycle".

MSNBC has found its replacement for Dylan Ratigan's show: "The Cycle." The new program, which the network was set to announce on Thursday, will feature a permanent cast of four: conservative commentator S.E. Cupp, author and pundit Touré, Salon writer Steve Kornacki and former Congressional candidate Krystal Ball. All were previously contributors to the network. The show launches on Monday at 3 PM. The outlines for the show were previously reported in the media. The four hosts and Steve Friedman, executive producer of "The Cycle," spoke to The Huffington Post about the show on Thursday afternoon. Friedman said that plans for the new show began two or three months ago, when Ratigan told MSNBC executives he was thinking of leaving. "The Cycle" will be an ensemble show; all four hosts will appear every day, with each one taking turns facilitating the discussion. If that sounds like a certain 5 PM Fox News show, the team behind "The Cycle" is well aware of it. In the Thursday interview, Cupp, Kornacki, Touré and Ball all jokingly pretended not to know what "The Five" is, and Friedman flatly rejected the notion that his new show was derivative. "When 'The Five' started, did you go and ask them if they were doing 'The View'?" he asked. "When 'The View' started, did you ask them if they were doing the 'Today' show?"
