Skip to comments.Keith Olbermann dropped by 'Sunday Night Football' (no, not b/c he's far left)

Bombastic Olbermann is being yanked off NBC's "SNF".......NBC complained it was distracting him from his cable news network show. Olbermann missed several editions of MSNBC's, "Countdown." NBC officials assured reporters that Olbermann's florid, left-of-center politics and tendency to rant against Republicans is not the reason he is being yanked. The Sunday night game is NBC's highest-rated program, and losing his weekly spot will mark the end of the promotion his cable show has been getting the past three years.

OK I may watch it now.
If Bathtub Boy is off, I’ll start watching again.
Me, too. Who wanted to watch anything with him on it?
NBC is worried about “Countdown”? ROTFL!!! I don’t think the clowns who watch that crap are capable of telling you if Olbermann is doing the show or not.
Maybe I will too.
“NBC officials assured reporters that Olbermann’s florid, left-of-center politics and tendency to rant against Republicans is not the reason he is being yanked”
Yea sure..I think they finally got tired of all the emails and negative comments from NFL fans.
Now I can turn up the sound.
Still, I've been in the habit of clicking my televsion off or to another channel whenever Olbermann intruded on a football game. Often, I didn't click back until long after the game had resumed. I suspect there are others like me and that this will be a good move for NBC.
UHH...That really helped your ratings huh Kief??
Without the ability to promote your show that nobody watches, I guessing your ratings will drop even more.
Whoops there goes sole possession of distant 2nd!!
Probably wind up competing against that dude from CNN, or that hag from that CNNish like channel that nobody watches either.
Why were you in sports anyway...I thought Commies were against competition?? Seeing your ratings...that's a plus for you.
What a load of crapola...I for one took time last year to formally complain about having to watch that flaccid schlong while trying to enjoy a football game. In fact I turned the channel when his face hit camera time...the same with millions of others I’m sure...hence no more K.O. on Sunday Night Football.
Countdown to zero ratings!!!
What a frigging joke.
Why the NFL is dealing with NBC in the first place is what i wanna know.
Olberman........Give me a frigging break.
awwwww golly, we will not miss you Keith.
I turned to some other channel when there was the possibility Olbermoron would on. Now is the question was he really distracted from his own show or was he driving away advertisers from SNF?
they dropped him because it was hurting the ratings, no matter what they say....he is a complete asshole and everyone knows it.
The NFL is keeping Keith from his regular duties?
Keith Olbermann....that reminds me. I need to put toilet paper on my shopping list.
"Keith, we hardly knew ye. Farewell."
Another major lie from NBC. Olbermann’s staff has been quitting over the last month including his producer and some of his supporters higher up in PMSLSD are on their way out now that Comcast is in charge. This guy will be ranting exclusively on twitter in his pajamas by next year.
no sh$t!!!! lets get back to Howie, Dandy and Keith Jackson on MONDAY Night Football!!!.....oops wait a minute...okay, you can come along the next year Frank!!...howie...maybe another lifetime.
We didn't fire him because he's a leftist loonie, we fired him because he SUCKS.
just in time for the regular season. Don’t let the door hit your *** on the way out Olberdork.
