They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

Keith Olbermann has a new show coming out, and it'll be the first time he's been on TV since his interesting departure from MSNBC.
In fact, he says he hasn't watched more than 5 minutes of the channel since he left, and that he's completely focused on his new content. He also says that reporters shouldn't believe the "bullshit" they hear about competitors' projections on how well his show is going to do, because he's in it for good, not for huge numbers right away. It's all about content for him:
"We're in this for the long haul," he said, adding that there are no set audience targets. If just 10 technicians for the show can see it on Monday, "that would be a satisfactory audience." Current reaches about 60 million cable and satellite homes, which puts it at a disadvantage to MSNBC, which goes to about 97 million and Fox News at about 102 million.
Also, interestingly enough, Olbermann says that Donald Sutherland is going to be a regular commentator on the show.
We're intrigued on how well this show is going to do, how unfiltered Keith gets, and if people are actually going to watch!
Are U going to be watching??
