I can’t tell which one is Keith Olberman’s show—is it “Countdown with Keith Olberman” or “LSD”. :)

I would not consider that “in the tank” as he is up compared to his previous ratings...was is telling is that O’Rielly is up 600K-800K viewers....almost a 40% increase...I get into arguements with the looney left about this all the time....lib media does backflips because losermann has tripled his ratings from 250K viewers...I tell them when your in the cellar there’s no place to go but up...O’Reilly was at 2-to-2.2 million per night....for him to go to 2.8 is incredible...

It's just as hard to find out what LSD stands for as it is to find out what hildabeast stands for. No one knows, and if they do, they ain't telling.

It all adds up to about 2 million viewers: not much.

Am I reading that right? BOR gets more viewers on his 11 pm re-run that Olberstupid gets on his first run?

I can’t listen to this guy talk for more than two minutes. I have NEVER seen a person talk so non-stop off the top of his head about nothing for so long as this vacuous putz. No, vacuous is the wrong word. He is filled to the bursting point with nothingness. His diatribes are a long slow marathon-like release of methane from the overinflated bowels of a 600 pound food addict who can no longer rise from his filthy, vomit laden bed, reveling in the smell of his own emissions.

Thats because alot of people, like me, were watching some of the other 8000 channels. I was watching “HotRod” shows on TLC last night. I prefer to have the TV off altogether, but sometimes leave it on as background noise.

I refuse to sit on my hiney and watch it, hypnotized for hour and hours. There are so many other things to do....But I don’t mind catching a few anticipated shows or a couple favorites.

Yes. Oreilly’s 11:00 PM repeat more often than not beats Countdown’s prime time numbers. Every once in a while Olbermann will go on a rant about how he “beat” Oreilly’s numbers in the “demo” (demographics 25-54); it invariably turns out that Oreilly was either 1) not hosting the show that night or 2) the show was a repeat. This happened about three weeks ago on a Friday night. Bill had a repeat on and Olbermann on Monday was just going crazy that he beat him.......LOL - at a repeat show!

Glenn Beck’s shows are getting better all the time. I’d much rather watch Glenn than “love my eyes” Shep Smith.

Lysergic acid diethylamide, LSD, LSD-25, or acid, is a semisynthetic psychedelic drug of the tryptamine family. Probably the best known psychedelic, it has been used mainly as; a recreational drug, an entheogen, and a tool to aid various methods of transcendence, including meditation, psychonautics, and illicit (though at one time legal) psychedelic psychotherapy, whether self administered or not. It is synthesized from lysergic acid derived from ergot, a grain fungus that typically grows on rye and was first synthesized by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann. The short form LSD comes from its early codename LSD-25, which is an abbreviation for the German “Lysergsäure-diethylamid” followed by a sequential number.[1][2]

LOL - I know what it is. I’m just not sure which ratings belong to it. That’s all I’m asking. Which show (above) does it have or what are it’s ratings?

From looking at the site, the “LSD” number goes with the preceeding program, so my guess is Largest Single Day, meaning that this is their high water mark in viewers.

I’ve heard Rush put this in perspective. He has basically indicated that those who are mean spirited and small minded tend to fail.

Especially after he exposed himself knowing nothing and attacking FreeRepublic, I agree with your astute description completely.

He gives new meaning to “blowhard”.

I hear ya’ — and to help you out, stay away from the NFL pre-game show on NBC Sunday nights. I think Costas is the other host, but NBC must have better talent than that for the pre-game. It tells us something about what they want to push. His latest “Malagang/gong” incident just another in the pantheon of Olberman’s inability to even grasp basic facts and the contradictions he opens himself up to.

Sometimes when I can’t take Hannity, I’ll turn to Glenn. I like him more and more. I didn’t know he was opposite Shep also, I’ll remember that.

I caught that NFL show on its first broadcast. Unwatchable. I will NOT tune in as long as he is on. There has GOT to be millions more like us, so I hope they cut him lose before the season is over.

That would be so right.

They should rename his show “Lost”...can’t find any viewers. My cable went out the other day and all I had was a blue screen...I thought I was watching the “Best of Olbermann” show.

“Glenn Beck’s shows are getting better all the time. I’d much rather watch Glenn than “love my eyes” Shep Smith.”

I adore Glenn Beck and his show is great. BTW, I just heard Edie on Fox announce she will begin a new show starting Monday in Shep’s 3:00 EST slot.
