The scrolling news ticker has returned to MSNBC primetime, deepening the networks move toward less opinion.

The ticker hasn’t appeared during the evening shows in many years, but the change follows the networks gradual shift towards more news.

Oddly, the ticker displays the date along with the time.

The scroll hasn’t gone unnoticed, as media critic Adalian says the ticker “won’t add a single viewer” in a tweet.
