A funny thing happened to Edward R Olbermann when he made his Big Return to Countdown last week. Well, maybe not funny to Olby, but we can't imagine that Larry O'Donnell wasn't smiling at least a little bit. O'Donnell hosted The Hour of Spin for four days the previous week, and we compared his ratings with the same four days of the following week hosted by the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. The numbers tell the story:
Ouch! Do you suppose MSNBC's bosses at Comcast are looking at numbers like these? Could they be wondering why they should pay an exorbitant salary to Krazy Keith, with all his high maintenance idiosyncracies, when they can attract more viewers for much less cost with their new best friend Larry?
Of course neither of them comes anywhere near the eeevil Mr Bill, but when it comes to bang for the buck, will MSNBC continue to pour money down the Olbermann rat-hole? Discuss, resolve, and recap! Comments are open!
