The Dylan Ratigan Show was an American television program on MSNBC hosted by Dylan Ratigan, formerly of sister CNBC's Fast Money. It aired weekdays from 4pm to 5pm Eastern Time. The show was previously known as Morning Meeting with Dylan Ratigan and aired from 9am to 11am weekday mornings.[1] It initially launched on June 29, 2009 as part of sweeping changes to MSNBC's daytime weekday programs along with a revamp of the channel's graphics and its launch in high definition.[2]

In December 2009, the show was cut by one hour and later relaunched under the current branding on January 11, 2010 with a new graphics package and set design. The change was made in order to make room for The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie at 9am, as part of MSNBC's commitment to straight news programming during the day.[1] The show focuses on debate and discussion relating to politics and the economy. He also focuses on financial/business issues. Ratigan often offers commentary on the subject matter and rebuttal to many of the guests who appear on the show.

On December 6, 2010, The Dylan Ratigan Show announced a partnership with Nucor Steel "to create an innovative road show titled "Steel on Wheels," aiming to bring forth solutions to the most pressing problems facing the American people. The "Steel on Wheels" tour will focus on four major themes: The Spirit Of America, Innovation, The Building Of Our Nation, and The Future Of America’s New Generations."[3]

Matt Miller was the primary fill-in host for Ratigan on the program.

The final episode aired June 22, 2012. Martin Bashir moved his program into the 4 p.m. hour on June 25.[4]
