Liberals, get ready: Ed Schultz is back to fight the good fight with you.
The scrappy host -- who once called Laura Ingraham "a right-wing slut" (he later apologized) -- will return to the MSNBC lineup with a weekend show starting May 11.
Fans were dismayed in March when it was announced that Schultz was going to lose his weekly prime-time show on the cable news network. Executives promised then that Schultz would return, although it's taken a bit longer than expected (they initially said April 1).
In a statement, MSNBC President Phil Griffin wrote: "I’m thrilled for Ed and happy to be expanding our weekend programming. It’s an exciting time for MSNBC and I’m looking forward to having Ed’s powerful voice on our network for a long time."
