DOWN BY HALF: Keith Olbermann Posts Worst Ratings Yet
Business Insider ^ | 9/20/11 | Glynnis MacNicol

Posted on 09/20/2011 5:23:51 PM PDT by jimbo123

Turns out Keith Olbermann's fans may not be willing to follow him to the ends of the earth. Or in this case Current TV.

The Daily News reports that Olbermann's show has lost nearly half its viewers since its June Debut.

Current doesn't make Olbermann's ratings public (unless the show has a particularly good week as it did in the last week of August), but the NYDN got its hands on some numbers and they're not great.

(no I did not read this post)
Just going by the headline, I am thinking how worse could it be? Is he running negative ratings?
I mean half, how do you half one viewer.

When he gets less viewers than my average FR post has readers, then maybe they will cancel.

This guy will soon be the local weatherman in an ultra small TV market in some small town somewhere in the hinterland of the US.

I’m sure your post has far more readers. I’m dead serious.

It’s hilarious. The MSM pays these idiots loads and touts them as influential when many FR posters have far greater and INTERNATIONAL audiences by virtue of simply opining.

Keif appears to be a typical, metrosexual twerp.

Maybe he’s going to have to find real work.

He might do ok as an insurance salesman, or maybe selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door.

An hour of this would pull bigger ratings than Keef:

The hateful and one-dimensional Olbermann has nothing else to offer his hateful and one-dimensional viewers.

His new theme song should be `Nothin from Nothin` by Billy Preston.

He is a graduate of the Cornell Ag school. Perhaps he could remember his education, and find more useful and beneficial ways to shovel fertilizer?

I doubt he could handle either of those jobs, they both demand some ability to sound convincing.

How soon before Sunday Night Football takes him back? He’s the Sarah Jessica Parker of broadcasting.

We don’t want him here in the hinterland. He’ll be ultra small somewhere on a liberal coast, where he belongs.

This report has to be wrong. Half of Zero is still Zero, so his ratings have not fallen at all.

Both Olbie and MSNBC are going down the low-flow toilet. What a frickin’ shame. I read Algore is paying Olbie $9 million per. Brilliant, Al.

And if his ratings dropped to zero, who would notice?
