It’s the Friday before the New Year’s holiday weekend, but with only four days before America begins choosing her next president, Ed is busy putting together another packed show.

In Iowa, Newt Gingrich breaks down after falling into fifth in the polls, Willard Mitt Romney says he’ll think about releasing his tax returns (if he’s elected president) and Michele Bachmann said her favorite hunting weapon is an assault rifle.

Democratic strategist and NYU Professor Bob Shrum will help us make sense of it all. 

Chris Moody of Yahoo! News and John Nichols of The Nation report from the campaign trail. 

Also, Ed checks in with an all-star panel including Washington Post Columnist E.J. Dionne, Real Clear Politics’ Erin McPike and “Ring of Fire” radio host Mike Papantonio.

They’ll discuss the GOP presidential race, including these tidbits: Chris Christie threatens to go “Jersey Style” on a crowd in Iowa.  Do Iowans think his bullying is funny?  And Sarah Palin for Secretary of Energy?

We’ve tallied up the numbers on this year’s Psycho Talk segments.  Tonight, Ed will countdown the top Psycho Talkers of the year (click here to vote for your favorite!).

And with this, the final “Ed Show” of the year, Ed reflects on the incredible year of 2011.  You won’t want to miss that!

It’s going to be another packed @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbctv.

And join the conversation now or during the show by commenting on Facebook and/or tweeting (with the #edshow hashtag) so we can share your thoughts on the show!
