MSNBC is canceling three shows, including "The Cycle," "Now with Alex Wagner" and "The Ed Show," marking the latest upheaval for the ratings-starved cable news network.

The three programs will air their final episodes this Friday, according to a memo written by MSNBC President Phil Griffin.

Alex Wagner and "The Cycle's" Ari Melber managed to stay on the struggling network's payroll, as they will continue to provide 2016 election coverage and legal analysis, respectively.

The others weren't so lucky: "The Cycle" hosts Krystal Ball, known best for a series of racy photos that tanked her congressional bid in Virginia's red-leaning 1st District, Touré, known best for penning short stories, including "A Hot Time at the Church of Kentucky Fried Souls and the Spectacular Final Sermon of the Right Revren Daddy Love," and Abby Huntsman, known best as the daughter of failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, will officially be ex-MSNBC employees come Friday evening.

Schultz is also finished with the cable news group.

"Beginning in a few weeks, Chuck Todd will bring his unmatched brand of political insight and analysis back to MSNBC with a daily one-hour program," the memo obtained by the Washington Examiner said.

Todd's reassignment to MSNBC comes just a few months after he was handed the coveted role as host of NBC News' storied "Meet the Press."

"I know you read press reports last week speculating about these changes. I hope you can understand that we were not able to confirm at that point because we had not yet finalized many of the decisions I'm sharing with you today, and we hadn't yet spoken directly with the people involved," the Griffin statement said.

"In the coming weeks, as we complete our plans to create a new look and flow for our dayside programming, our 3pm to 6pm hours will begin the pivot towards live, breaking news coverage — with interim hosts from among our very talented ranks," it added. "And then, in September, we'll unveil a 9am to 5pm schedule driven by dynamic coverage of breaking news events that are shaping the day."

Thursday's announcement is the latest in a series of programming changes brought on by the group's remarkably bad ratings. Mediaite was the first to report this month that "The Cycle," "Now" and the "Ed Show" would likely get the axe.

"Change can be hard. There's no doubt it's been a difficult time, but we have exciting opportunities ahead," the Griffin memo concluded.
