Keith Olbermann's Ratings Headed for the Dumpster

NYDN - Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown” has experienced quite a comedown since leaving MSNBC.

After debuting to promising ratings on the Current cable network in late June, Olbermann’s political commentary show posted its lowest numbers yet the week of Sept 5–11. Nielsen figures provided by industry sources also show that, based on weekly averages of the program's performance on Current, "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" has never done better than its debut week on Al Gore's hard-to-find cable network. (It did come close on Aug. 30, racking up 310,000 total viewers; 102,000 of them adults 25-54.)

Current says the low September "Countdown" numbers could be attributed to a number of factors: A repeat episode ran on Labor Day, and in late August, Olbermann - who's reportedly making $10 million a year at Current - was away for five days due to back problems. 

Personally, I think the fault of bad ratings could just
be the choice of Keith's on- air wardrobe .......  



  1. Queef's ratings heading for the dumpster?
    Good. He wont be lonely anymore when they arrive.

  2. Even Al Gore refuses to watch Queef.
