Keith Olbermann's Ratings Drop In New Show's Second Week

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteBusiness Blitz

ratings for keith olbermanns countdown are down in second week

Don't panic, Keith! It WAS a holiday week after all!

During Keith Olbermann's second week of Countdown on Current TV, his ratings were down, with 93,000 viewers in the ages 25-54 demo, and 253,000 viewers in total.

Despite a drop in viewership, he's still doing FAR better than Current's timeslot was faring before his show began, which had previously averaged 15,000 viewers.

Guess we'll see if Keith is able to bring up those ratings this week, now that the 4th has come and past!

Have U been tuning in to Keith Olbermann's Countdown on Current TV?

Keith Olbermann Says Goodbye To Glenn Beck! He's Going To Miss Hating On Him Dearly!

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePolitik

We know this was tough for you because you loathe love Glenn Beck so much, Keith, but we still think you did a wonderful job!

Check out the video (above) of Keith Olbermann's farewell message to Glenn Beck on Current TV.

What a fond farewell! Ya know, maybe we've been misinterpreting the signals that Keith's been giving Glenn over the years! Maybe he actually sees Glenn as something more! Maybe one day we'll see these two co-hosting a TV show together!!!!

Obvi we're JK. It's quite clear that Keith is VERY happy that Glenn's show on Fox is ending, and we're sure lots of people feel the same way…although lots of of people will also be bummed that he's leaving.

What do U think about the end of Glenn Beck's show? Happy? Sad? A little bit of both?

Keith Olbermann Opens Up About Leaving MSNBC And Joining Current TV

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteBusiness Blitz

keith olbermann on leaving msnbc and joining current tv

Now that Keith Olbermann has his new show Countdown and is bringing together his contributors, he seems to be in a pret-ty secure position, and has finally decided to open up about leaving MSNBC and joining Current TV

Here are a couple of the reasons that Olbermann gives for joining Current TV:

- He got a pay raise from $7 million to $10 million/year
- He has has been named chief news officer for Current TV, and has been given an equity stake in the network

And here's more from Olbermann on his move from MSNBC to Current TV:

"It's been fascinating, to see the assumption that this is some sort of bizarre move for me. I have achieved what I wanted to achieve. I'm better off at some sort of independent place where they not only like what I produce but also trust me to be the one to produce it."

And here's Olbermann on how he got into MAJOR TROUBLE at NBC by gossiping about Jeff Zucker during the Comcast merger:

"There was a lot of speculation about what would happen. One surprisingly accurate bit of speculation on every floor of the building was, 'I betcha they don't keep Jeff.' And apparently he heard that I had said this. I was there and I was a convenient punching bag and everybody would believe everything they said about me. And so off I went."

Sorry to hear about the drama, but def sounds like Keith's move from MSNBC to Current TV was a positive one in quite a few ways. More money, more power, AND more creative freedom? Sounds good to us!

What do U think about Keith's reasons for moving to Current TV after MSNBC? Would U do the same thing?
