Olbermann’s Ratings Fall to Just 46,000

He’s making MSNBC’s ratings look good by comparison. And yet he gets paid $10 million per year. Oh, by the way, that’s down from the early days of his program. Which means even his fellow lefties are tuning him out.

Keith Olbermann is not in the witness protection program, but he might as well be. His show on Al Gore’s Current TV (America’s least watched network) has lost nearly a third of its viewers in four months.

Pretty impressive result for $10 million a year. That’s just his salary.

Countdown with Keith Olbermann was a major draw when it was on MSNBC. On January 21, the network took a big hit when Olbermann announced on air that that would be his last show for them. Then in June, Current launched Olbermann and Countdown.

It was no surprise that Olbermann drew a big audience for its early shows – averaging 106,000 viewers a night. Unfortunately, by August it was down to 79,000. Last month’s numbers were even worse. Olbermann’s average was down to 46,000 viewers and was in no danger of coming close to breaking into the top 30 cable TV news shows.

So he gets paid about $217 per average viewer. And all he has to do is rant about evil corporations and Republicans.

Nice work if you can find a sucker to hire you.
