    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    August 11, 2011
    Uh Oh. Bad News for Edward R Olbermann...

    Bathtub Boy

    We've commented repeatedly on how tight-lipped Olbermann's corporate masters have been with ratings information. Olby, who in his salad days at A-Mess-NBC regularly touted his strong (i.e. losing) ratings in the 'money demo', has now lapsed into the sound of silence when it comes to Nielsen numbers.

    The reason for that became clear today as the Hollywood Reporter revealed the latest ratings for the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann and his community access cable hour. Yes, you guessed it: Countdown has achieved record ratings. Record lows that is. Under Herr Olbermahn's stewardship the program has sunk to its lowest 25-54 viewership level evah:

    Keith Olbermann's Countdown on Current hit an all-time low last week in the 25-54 demographic. The show pulled in 85,000 viewers in the demo, that was down 2 percent compared to the previous week when the debt ceiling debate was still roiling Washington. Countdown averaged 208,000 total viewers, up 5 percent week-to-week.

    Of course Current suits are spinning the numbers as 'outstanding' (!), but they are whistling past the graveyard. Because things are only going to get worse for Olby:

    Olbermann has new competition at 8 p.m. as Anderson Cooper 360 moved into the hour and immediately posted double-digit demo gains compared to CNN's previous time-period average. On Tuesday, Cooper's second night anchoring at 8 p.m., the show averaged 228,000 viewers in the demo. Cooper has anchored the program this week from Africa. He was at the Kenya-Somalia border for Monday's show and Mogadishu on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Go Coop!

    How long will Al Gore keep paying Olbermann's salary, which was pegged at $10 million so that Keith could brag he's making as much as Bill O'Reilly? For a whopping 85,000 pairs of eyeballs, compared with the 600,000 to 900,000 demo viewers who turn in to Mr Bill nightly? Remember our cable news chart? Olby's 85,000 viewers lands him in 48th place, behind the already-cancelled Cenk Uygur, FNC's 3:00 am Red Eye, and HLN's struggling Showbiz Tonight. Well done, Al. Keep it up, Keith!

    And I'm sure ABC, CBS, and NBC draw higher ratings than MSNBC, CNN, and FNC.

    And Fox, too. But we're talking about cable ratings.
    We can always count on you to dodge, dance, move the goalposts, and change the subject in the first comment to any post.

    here comes the We Love Bathtub boy sweep sweep crew......surprised you didn't use the old "cartoon network ratings are better than Fox" liberal bullshit Carlos

    From Ketih on Twitter

    "Here's some fun reading: Countdown's Ratings Just Behind Anderson Cooper's Mega-Hyped Premiere Night"

    In the demo on Monday it was 128,000 Olbermann, 140,000 Cooper. On Tuesday it was 228,000 for Cooper and 103,000 for Olbermann. Not sure why Monday was so bad for Cooper but he really opened the lead against Olbermann on day two and of course no smart ass replies from Olbermann for that day.

    Meanwhile, from the halls of "say what!?!?" comes this quote from Joel Hyatt on Olbermann's numbers:

    "The only way you can characterize those number is outstanding"

    Last week they averaged 85,000 viewers in the demo and apparently that's "outstanding". I can't wait to see how low Olby has to drop before Hyatt admits there is a problem.

    "We can always count on you to dodge, dance, move the goalposts, and change the subject in the first comment to any post."

    Yessir Mike C. Carlos doesn't want to talk about the last time he was here, when he deliberately left a sentence out of a quote to make what Olbermann said not offensive.

    "And I'm sure ABC, CBS, and NBC draw higher ratings than MSNBC, CNN, and FNC."

    And naturally, you're too lazy to look up those numbers yourself, right?

    Once again MKDAWUSS refuses to admit the only reason ratings are an issue here is because of Olbermann's insults towards his competitor's ratings and touts of being the No. 1 show among demographics that don't exist.

    Make all the excuses and ridiculous comparisons you want. He's on a network no one watches and since he used to laugh at other's poor ratings now he gets to eat s***. Own it.

    Well, Current DID have shows that had higher ratings and gave Current TV its glory of finally being noticed , they were

    Has Robin been filing in for Fatman this week? Cause they haven't posted Worsts on the web site. So no abstracts.

    Hopefully I'll get back to it monday.

    On a separate note. Olby made note on a recent worsts about Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder's 'seeing' a bartender who is a penthouse pet. Well, there is a story on Big Government that debunks the whole thing.

    Enjoy and bask in the glory of Keith being WRONG AGAIN!

    See you guys later.

    sorry for the double post.

    Today Robin was going on about all these polls that claim Americans want to raise taxes. How about a poll that asks "Would you agree to a raise in your taxes to help reduce the defecit?" Let's see how many people agree to that one. The problem is all these people who want to raise taxes know that it will be someone else paying the bills and not them.

    Time to stop the tyrany of the masses.

    They should have a drinking game every time Robin utters the word "hyprocity" I think that's the only word he knows. I really don't know who is more annoying, him or Bathtub Boy.

    Upon his return, will the False Murrow proclaim that Jani Lane was a friend and fan of Countdown?

    With Olby and Al Gore (Keith's master)
    The ratings are sinking faster
    Than ever before
    Olby and Gore
    Combine for a Nielsen disaster

    Yeah he was back and he had the rest of the left wing "Axis" with him, Markos "I'm so gay" Moulitsas and of course Janeane "it's the stockholm syndrome" Garofalo on tonight.

    And of course "Bathtub Boy" went on his usual boring rants about how Ann Rand's Atlas Shrugged was a horrible book, etc.

    I personally think that Olbermann has thing with the movie, "A Face In The Crowd." I think he's obsessed with it. No matter what comes up now, he relates it to this crappy movie. What a nut.

    "He's BACK!!!!"

    And so are you.

    Care to respond to any of the more recent stuff you've either lied about or got completely wrong through ignorance or stupidity?

    Didn't think so. Just write "when did that ever happen?" and haunt some other house.
