This may prove to be the most pivotal day of the 2012 campaign so far.

Newt Gingrich shows new Newtmentum in South Carolina even thought his ex-wife is taking shots at him.  And, front-runner Mitt Romney found out today he actually LOST the Iowa caucuses to Rick Santorum.  Wow! 

E.J. Dionne, a Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution and Washington Post columnist, and Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View Columnist, will have all the latest on the chaos in Carolina.

Rick Perry finally drops out of the race (and endorses Newt Gingrich).  Ed will give the Texas governor a fond and fitting farewell with help from Jim Moore, co-author (“Adios Mofo”), msnbc and Huffington Post contributor, and Kinky Friedman, former Texas gubernatorial candidate.

Mitt Romney wanted to let General Motors go bankrupt, but the car company is back to being number one on the planet, thanks to intervention by President Obama.  How much will good news on the economy help the president?  

Ed welcomes a mega-panel, including Krystal Ball, Democratic Strategist and former candidate for U.S. Congress, Joy-Ann Reid, Managing Editor of TheGrio.com and msnbc Contributor, and Richard Wolffe, msnbc Political Analyst.

Stephen Colbert is at it again!  Political comedian and radio personality John Fugelsang joins Ed to comment on the new Colbert Super PAC ad.

And Ed will call out New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in tonight’s Psycho Talk.

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