keith olbermann espn sports show returning

Remember when we declared that Keith Olbermann got a new job, and that it was waaaay more basebally than the last?

It looks like we were OFFICIALLY right — just, with ESPN instead of TBS! LOLz!

He'll be hosting an 11 pm show on ESPN 2, and it debuts on Aug. 26th — this was JUST announced! We still don't have a title, though, which is super bogus this late in the game! Here's what Keith said about it:

Keith Olbermann Gets A New Job, WAY More Basebally Than The Last!

Filed under: TV NewsZportzBaseball

Current TV is eating its decision to boot Keith Olbermann, because he's totally moving on to bigger and better things! That's right, TBS has hired him to… wait… really? To host the TBS’ Major League Baseball postseason studio show?

Nevermind, Current TV is probably still happy with their decision! LOLz!

Keith, in his first post-Current job, will be joining analyst and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley. You might not remember this, but Keith is a veteran sports reporter/anchor in addition to all those years doing just the news! He anchored ESPN’s SportsCenter from 1992 to 1997. He was even recently a guest host of MLB Network’s Hot Stove.

So yeah, he's qualified — it just seems like a step backwards from reporting on big world news!

A job's a job, though! Ha!

Keith Olbermann Is Filing His Lawsuit Against Current TV…TODAY!

Keith Olbermann filing lawsuit

Why would anyone buy a $10 million chandelier? Because it can talk, host a television show, then sue you after it's fired!

Keith "The $10 Million Lighting Fixture" Olbermann wasn't kidding about taking action against Al Gore's Current TV for his early dismissal. His attorney, Patricia Glaser, has revealed that the anchor is filing a lawsuit against his former employer…TODAY!

We're not sure about the inside details that will make or break this case for the disgruntled newsman, but he's got good representation. Glaser helped Conan O'Brien take home a $45 million settlement from NBC during his Tonight Show debacle.

When are both parties going to wake up and realize they are just being Punk'd by Ashton Kutcher Justin Bieber?

Keith Olbermann Admits He "Screwed Up"…Sort Of.

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersAl GoreDavid Letterman

Well, well, well Mr. Olbermann!! Taking responsibility for your actions???

Kind of…

Last night, the ex-Current TV anchor appeared on Letterman and addressed the whole Current TV firing/legal debacle, doing something that hardly anyone in the limelight does these days…he admitted fault!

In the most vague, circumventing way ever…but still! It's something.

He did create a metaphor in which he is a $10 million dollar chandelier and Current TV is a dilapidated housing unit, so um, he is still deceptively making a jab at the network.

We've been avidly following this back and forth between Al Gore's network and this bigger than life newsie personality, and everything indicated that Olbermann was an ego-maniac who would never admit defeat.

We were…wrong?

Ch-ch-check out the interview AFTER THE JUMP!!!
