keith olbermann back at msnbc with high ratings

After being suspended for two days, Countdown with Keith Olbermann returned to MSNBC this week with a whopping 1.5 million viewers.

That is a 50 percent ratings boost!

Guess getting in trouble isn't the worst thing to have happen.

    Compared to rival O Reilly those numbers are laughable…but I guess that's good enough for MSNBC.



  2. 2

    That's not even half of what O'Reilly gets.

    Hottie! Will marry for food.

    Not suprising, just in the case of Conan's debut. Also like Conan, they will drop, in this case back to normal fast.

    I haven't been to Perez Hilton in quite awhile, it became way too left leaning. Not in the sense of gay rights, I'm all for that, but in the sense that his mind is fucked up.

    This article just proves again why I stopped coming here. Good luck Perez, you're going to need it. As if your viewer comments weren't a clue enough, this place has dried up like a parched buttplug.

    Love Keith, glad he is back!

    This guy is AWFUL.. he's a joke.

    Bahahaha! That is NOTHING! Why don't you throw in a more relevant statistic: compare that to how many people watch FOX News and O'Reilly.

    Keith Olbermann is worse than Chairman Mao. How dare he call himself an American. I hate him. He's no American. He's a traitor and a consummate asshole. His ratings suck ass compared to O'Reilly as many here have pointed out. Keith can't even come up with a good send-off. He stole his from Edward R. Murrow. Yeah, some journalist he is…or whatever he calls himself.

    Perez, please! Those people who watched after this LOSER came back simply wanted to witness first-hand if the jerk would quit, say something STUPID, etc., etc. It's not that he was "missed." Are you serious? Where did this idiot get his start? I think he's a failed standup comic! I'm googling it.

    I love him! God bless the democrats!!!

    I'm sorry, but people who go to FoxNews go to be entertained.. thats why i find cable news and broadcast news laughable, its meant to entertain not inform like a newspaper would. CNN and MSNBC have tried to stay the route of being professional and have diverse people with different views, but ratings shows that Americans lack interest in nformation and hard work..just like reality TV being the sought out interest for "good" TV.

    Jerry Springer got viewers because of the trailer trash drama back when it was big. Or Howard Stern got tons of listeners that absolutely hated him. That's the same reason people watch Fox, because it is a train wreck. I bet Fox wouldn't can someone for taking sides in politics. They'd probably fire someone if they DIDN'T contribute to Republican candidates. They're a joke of a news organization. Even their motto "fair and balanced" is a blatant lie.

    ass

    Got to agree with the rest here, that is no ratings bonanza. The man is a boorish blowhard. I couldn't even stand him when I was voting for Democrats. He's disgusting and his show and his manner has always sucked. Poor MSNBC, why do they even bother? No one watches that network. No one, apparently, except Mario.

    Que te pasa, Mario? Ese hombre es un come mielda.

    Welcome back Keith!

    No doubt a ratings ploy due to their new "Leaning Forward" or is it "Bending Over" tag line. Curious to see what he would say is the only point here, you above all should know that Mario. How about a follow up on the rest of the week and the ratings period polled for the rest of the year. He will be in the cellar as usual with nothing to say but the crap he spews nightly.

    I don't think he should have been suspended in the first place, so on that basis, I'm glad he's back but I still think he is a complete horse's derriere! Immature, more than a little demented and quite offensive on his best day! And a stone liar as well.
