The host of a prime-time cable news show has been named one of the “least influential people alive” by GQ magazine, according to TVNewser.com.

MSNBC host Ed Schultz ranked third on the list, published in the magazine’s December issue, the story says.

"Then there [are] pundits like Ed Schultz. Do you watch ‘The Ed Show’ on MSNBC? Of course you don’t. No one does. The only reason people watch ‘The Ed Show’ is they’re working out in a hotel gym and they can’t find a staff member to change the channel to ESPN," the magazine wrote, according to the story.

Other media figures also made the list, including Tia and Tamera Mowry, who star in the Style Network’s "Tia & Tamera" reality show, at No. 4.

Former GOP presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty tops the list, according to the report, with President Barack Obama ranked No. 25.


  1. You buried the lede — in the very last sentence.

  2. VideoSavant – the lead was “Cable News Host” along with “one of the least.” So they called it out for you on MSNBC’s Ed Shultz.
    Pay attention. Get another cup of coffee. Or both.

  3. Christian, what Video Savant meant was that the lead should have been that President Obama has fallen from being hailed as the most influential person to the 25th least influential person alive. Few people care where dumb ol’ Ed is on the list except him and the execs at MSNBC.
