* FirstNameBasis: She usually addresses her guests as "[Title] [Surname]" (or, in the case of politicians, sometimes just "[Title]"), but usually calls network correspondents and contributors by their first names. For example, former U.S. Attorney Barbara [=McQuade=] went from "Ms. [=McQuade=]" to "Barb" after becoming a regular contributor. Similarly, Chuck Rosenberg is now "Chuck" instead of "Mr. Rosenberg", except occasionally at the beginning or ending of an interview.

** She also can't believe that she gets to interview Chuck Rosenberg[[note]]a former U.S. Attorney who has worked for both FBI director James Comey and special counsel Robert Mueller[[/note]] on a regular basis now that MSNBC has snapped him up as a legal analyst.
--->'''Rachel''': Chuck Rosenberg, former U.S. Attorney, former chief of staff to the FBI director James Comey, former acting head of the D.E.A. -- a guy I can't really believe we can get to come on the show, but don't tell him.

Unlike her former peer, KeithOlbermann -- whose middle name might as well be LargeHam -- and many other pundits out there, she is known for her calm demeanor and even-keeled manner, which alongside her [[ShownTheirWork dedication to research]] has earned her a sizable {{Fandom}} on both sides of the aisle.

* BreakoutCharacter: Her guest-hosting for KeithOlbermann was so popular it netted Rachel her own show.

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to her counterparts across the political spectrum, Rachel is (usually) very calm and collected, and more than willing to be facetious, particularly compared to Creator/CenkUygur (he was ''far'' more vocal in his criticism than she can be). To anyone used to, say, Radio/GlennBeck or KeithOlbermann, her tone will either be refreshing or downright disarming.

* RedOniBlueOni: Maddow has been the Blue Oni to the hot-blooded personalities who've aired before her, first KeithOlbermann, later Ed Schultz. Lawrence O'Donnell, meanwhile, has become something of a "Purple Oni" between the two of them, having both Schultz's penchant for melodrama and Maddow's keen and calm attention to detail.

* WittyBanter: She is a past master at this: her "tosses" to Keith Olbermann, Chris Hayes, and Lawrence O'Donnell are fan favorites, to the point where MSNBC compiled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wkL-JbY8BY a highlight reel]] of the exchanges between her and Lawrence at the end of 2017 because their interactions are so beloved.

Added DiffLines:

* ClipShow: Occasionally, usually in very close proximity to major holidays (e.g. on Black Friday), she will do a show that consists mostly of earlier footage of interviews or other coverage that is somewhat related to current events, meaning she only has to give brief introductions to the clips. These have the benefit of still being somewhat topical, while also giving Rachel some actual time off, or at least a less stressful day.

** Richard Engel launched a series of hour-long specials under the title ''On Assignment with Richard Engel'' in 2017. These don't air every week, but when they do, they usually do so in Rachel's own 9pm timeslot on Friday nights.[[note]]Engel's situation is somewhat different in that he's been a well-known figure on both NBC News and MSNBC for years as a foreign correspondent, but never as the host of his own program. However, ''On Assignment'' does share production staff with Rachel's show, and Rachel frequently introduces the episodes when they airs.[[/note]]
