    Why is a show that will average 250K viewers getting covered?

    • LOL

      GOP fears Olbermann.

      • 0bama

        Who is Keith Olbermann? People watch PMSNBC? Bizarroworld today

      • kate middleton

        You’re insane if you think anyone outside of the very far left take this guy seriously.

      • HYPOCRITES

        Yeah, just like you’re insane if you think anyone outside of the very far right take O’Riley seriously. Stewart all the way baby.

    • John @ Kal

      250. Forget the k.

  • John

    Michael Moore? Way to take a chance and shed that msnbc ultra left snake skin that makes you the Glenn Beck or Hannity of the left Keith. I can see you’ve learned nothing. This is like Beck inviting Ted Nugent as his first guest on where ever he’s going. How do people watch these guys?

      Fox: Where Truth Goes to Die ®

  • Toby

    I’m sure both people who will be watching this show are thrilled.

  • Annette

    If an egomaniacal talk show host falls in the woods, and no one is watching, does it even matter if he makes a sound.

    • Bill O’Reilly

      Sorry. That was me. Tripped over some roots while hunting for magic mushrooms. Gotta keep the crazy going, ya’know?

  • j c

    I’m guessing more people will read this article than see this show.

    • to @JC

      LOL

  • Karin

    What a loser!! No one watches him or MSNBC.

  • kate middleton

    WOW, I am shocked. Same old, same old.

  • Craig

    I love KO!! Can’t wait for the new show to begin!

    • topoopon

      Me too Craig. Let the haters go watch Beck or DWTS.

  • Annia

    I’m glad to see him back on TV. He is not afraid to speak the truth & actually makes sense. Welcome back, Mr. Olbermann!

  • Bob

    I’m glad he’s back, just bummed that I can’t watch Current on my existing Verizon FiOS package. However, I’ll be bumping that up next month at renewal time (not for Current, that’s a bonus). Can’t wait to watch him again. Yes, his truth is wrapped up in his personality, but at least you get the truth, unlike other “news” networks.

  • John @ Bob

    If you think Olberman speaks the truth, you truly are as nuts as he is.

    • Bill O’Reilly

      Must be a fellow KA-RAZY Fox fan. We fools gotta stick together ya’know? YAY JESUS!

      • Eurydice

        Oh, I don’t know – just because there are liars on FOX doesn’t mean Olbermann can’t be a liar, too.

  • CHARLIE(NOT SHEEN)

    AS AN EX FAN……..
    THE ONLY WAY I WOULD WATCH MOORE IS IF A SPEAR GUN WAS USED TO PUT HIM OUT OF HIS MISERY
    TO GO THRU LIFE …FOCUS ON HATING AS HE DOES.HAS GOT TO HAVE CONSEQUENCES

    • Eurydice

      Does it have to be a spear gun? How about if he falls into a large pool of quicksand? It would use up more air time.

  • Sharlin

    I missed Keith. Good thing I can now watch him, Rachel and Lawrence again.

    YAY

  • deuce

    Who in the world would watch Keith Oberman? You’ve got to be kidding

  • amy

    Welcome back, Keith. You’ve been missed. I’ll be watching.
