PBS unplugs ‘Unfiltered’

Carlson skein to end run

NEW YORK — “Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered” will end its short run on PBS due to time constraints imposed by Carlson’s new hourlong program on MSNBC.

“Unfiltered,” which debuted in June, will not return for a second season, the pubcaster said. Carlson’s move from the Washington, D.C., area to New York to host the MSNBC show made a second season “operationally impossible.”

“Unfiltered” was taped at D.C.’s WETA-TV; MSNBC studios are in New Jersey.

The weekly half-hour show is carried by 93% of PBS stations.
