"ROOTS" RETURNS - TV One will exclusively debut the remastered, high definition version of the Emmy® Award winning film "Roots" beginning Sunday, October 18 at 8PM. The six-part, special enhanced version of Roots, the highest rated television series, will air in its entirety during the week each night at 8PM/ET (preempted on Friday, October 23) and finale on Saturday, October 24.
You'll recall that Keith did "Countdown" at MSNBC until 2011, when he left after a contentious relationship to start a show on Current TV. But that didn't work out, and Keith also left there in disgust, suing the channel. It wasn't long before ESPN came-a-callingm wanting Keith to come back and do a nightly sports commentary show, which he did for a year until a few months ago, when ESPN decided Keith was no longer welcomed. So the guy is very good, one of the best, but just hard to work with.
If Keith did return to MSNBC, it would certainly add some snap, crackle, pop to the mix over there as they continue to retool everything. Here's hoping the two sides can agree, and that Keith is back home, where he can deliver some more sizzling political commentary just in time for the 2016 presidential elections. And boy, could we use it!
