Skip to comments.Olbermann: Conservatives ‘crazy’ to think my ratings are down [video]
Posted on 02/06/2010 5:32:42 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Speaking last night on his show Countdown, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann blasted what he perceives as a conservative-led conspiracy to convince Americans that his shows popularity has faded precipitously since the election of President Obama last year. Among the collaborators in this bizarre right-wing scheme, he alleges, are the Los Angeles Times, Daily Finance, and Page Six.
Writes the Top of The Ticket blog at the Los Angeles Times in the post that infuriated the MSNBC host (not exactly a biased right-wing outlet, despite Olbermanns comments):
Olbermanns network president, Phil Griffin, is publicly praising him, always an ominous sign in television. While referring to his host almost in the past tense. Keith has been our tentpole, Griffin says, adding later, Im pleased with where we are.Where they are, as Jeff Bercovici points out over at Daily Finance, is way behind the big boys over at Fox News, Bill OReilly and gang. In fact, Keith is so far behind Bill, he cant even make out the state of the license plate, let alone the numbers. Bercovici thinks Americans may be outgrowing Olbermanns schtick.
In the most desirable TV demographic of 25-54, which Keith will soon outgrow himself, Countdown lost 44% of its audience from the beginning of President Obamas term until this year.

Olberdork is so crazy, he thinks the LA Times media critic of his tiresome ravings is a right wing conservative.
>>Countdown lost 44% of its audience from the beginning of President Obamas term until this year<<
From 10 to 6.6 people (the .6 is one kid who doesn’t pay attention while it is on much).
Flatliners get unplugged.... ‘cos there’s no more down to go.
MSNBC is delusional. No one watches Maddow, Oberman, or even Mathews, ok maybe a couple hundred thousand delusional liberals.
ONLY Sick Puppies would watch that creep.
I think you are crazy to think you even have ratings.
Then again, your taste is all in your mouth.
I hate it when I wake up in the morning and Barack Obama is President.
Does anyone know if Overbite was abused or neglected as a child? I would bet $100 bucks he was. Any takers?
I use to watch him with a buddy for the sole reason, he would lose it like Peter Finch in Network or have a heart attack..
It seems he is closer to that moment..
Olberman should be grateful for the criticism and the controversy. It's all he has left.
Typical liberal projection.
Highest rated show on TV if you don’t count everybody else.
Aw hell, “Peewee’s Playhouse” reruns do better than this wus.
Olbermann is a tent-pole, all right...!
Only one year, and he’s become as delusional as Ceaucescu.
I dispute your calculations. Since all of his viewers are drugged and only about ten percent of their brains function that means he actually has 100 "viewers" but the functional number is reduced to ten.
>>Olberdork is so crazy, he thinks the LA Times media critic of his tiresome ravings is a right wing conservative.
Truly he’s an idiot. I live in Hollywood and every lib I know of reads the LAT. Any editor of the LAT would rather slit their own throats than be associated with anything conservative.
Does anyone know if Overbite was abused or neglected as a child?
I’m sure he had to cough up his lunch money on more than a few occasions.
If you are a tv host and you have to spend time trying to defend your ratings on the air, you are telling the world what your ratings say.....no one cares about you.
What is his major malfunction?
Would this not be easy to determine by looking at the ratings? I do not have access to such information, but every report that I have seen shows FOX News destroying their rivals.
Man he must be mad as hel at those 44%, all both of them.
>>I dispute your calculations. Since all of his viewers are drugged and only about ten percent of their brains function that means he actually has 100 “viewers” but the functional number is reduced to ten.<<
I bow to your more accurate measurements...
Olbemann thinks the St. Louis Browns will win the World Series this year.
OVERBITE’s ratings are not falling...
His total ratings are ..
2 idiots in San Fransicko, and the
7 people who work in the MSNBC Building (it’s piped in they have no CHOICE)
I’d bet he had to squeal like a pig at least once...
MSNBC has to realize that their ratings would quadruple if they put a conservative in his place.
Sooner or later, I have to think dollar signs will trump their ideology and Olberman and Maddow will be put out to pasture.
Who knows? But it would be interesting, and probably disturbing, to know what combination of nature and nurture lead to such a horribly undesirable outcome.
Frantic is not pretty. Kinda like BHO?
Olberwoman ... many I’d love the opportunity to smack that self absorbed, self hating, nerd right in the mouth.
As hard as it may be to fathom, Ulberdork makes Alan Colmes appear Fantastically Intelligent!!And that is saying something One believe is Infinitely Unattainable!
“Frantic” = Desperate. LOL
The moon landing was faked!
There are Republicans under my bed!
What’s the frequency, Kenneth?
Someone please tell these voices in my head to stop!!
You would think that PMSNBC’s President would get the message and at least try a Good Conservative!! Heavens! It shouldn’t be hard to beat a Numbnuts like O’Reilly!!..:-)
Well, where I come from and where a lot of Red state people come from Keith Olberman would be considered nothing more than panty waste...sad it’s truly sad.., Sad that our media outlets are nothing more than a waste of a good pair of panties.
Keith has lost all touch.
Wow. If you think he is bitter and crazy now, just wait until he loses his show over “the evil Right Wing Conspiracy”.
All You have to do to this Queer Fairy, is look Crosseyed at Him and he would break down bawling like a Baby. I LOVED John Gibson’s descriptions of having to go up to Nitwit’s apartment during the Clinton Impeachment Trials, and finding Him curled up naked in his bathtub bawling and crying and freakin out!! A Total Insane Bizaree Leftwing Nutjob!
This is not a lie you can repeat often enough for it to become truth.
If Olbermann’s mom stopped watching him, his audience would be reduced by 33%
I’m sorry! my deepest apologies to You! You are entirely correct....Let PMSNBC keep doing what they are doing! Let them NOT Discover those Famous Words of Einstein! I wont repeat them knowing that all those Yokels at PMSNBC will be too stupid to Google those famous words of Einstein!! But any of You who own G.E. Stock should be screaming for the G.E. Board to “”FIRE IMMELT!!””

Maybe Keith should take a look?
He would kick O'Reilly's butt back to the stone age.
Keith Olbermann is Bad in Bed
Keith has been our tentpole, Griffin says,”
Because the guy is dumber than a post. So why not use him as a tent pole.
