Arianna Huffington Will Guest Host the Rachel Maddow Show Tonight: Be Sure to Catch It

Looks like Rachel Maddow is taking a much deserved break this evening, and Arianna Huffington will be stepping in as her guest host. Arianna described tonight's lineup earlier today over at The Huffington Post:

Thank you for all of your great suggestions for tonight's Rachel Maddow show, which I'll be guest hosting. They've been incredible and, as you can see from the emerging lineup, we're listening: Google CEO Eric Schmidt will join me to discuss the ways Obama can harness the Internet to make his administration more effective. Bill Maher will discuss the day's top stories. Newark mayor Cory Booker will weigh in on the impact the economic crisis is having on America's inner cities. And's Nate Silver will crunch the latest numbers in the still-pending Senate races. Click here for some real time video of me behind-the-scenes at the show -- and be sure to tune in tonight at 9 pm on MSNBC.

Update: Huffington was on Maddow's show last Friday talking about the GOP and Sarah Palin, check it out:
