Olbermann Goes Broadcast–Don’t Watch Football on NBC this Sunday Night

Brent Baker passes on a NBC press release.

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann will bring his unique take on the day’s events, from politics to pop culture, to a primetime network audience this Sunday night. A special edition of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” will air on Sunday, August 26th at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT on NBC, leading into the network’s “Sunday Night Football” pre-season NFL matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers, live at 8 p.m. ET. Olbermann is joining the network’s “Football Night in America” studio team this season. The special edition of “Countdown” will be broadcast live from MSNBC’s studios.

As Baker notes:

It sounds like a test to see how many viewers Olbermann’s brand of left-wing harangues can capture in prime time on a real network, though maybe in his Sunday night broadcast debut he’ll limit the politics and stick to his “Oddball” and celebrity segments. Given that the Football Night in America highlights show will air in the same time slot once the NFL season begins, we should at least be spared any further Sunday night airings of Countdown until after the NFL season ends.

Olbermann is a cartoon character of Democrat demagoguery, every night proclaiming yet another Republican to be the “Worst Person in the World.” This Sunday night, NBC will put this cartoon character, who puts the lunatic in lunatic left, the moon in moonbat, the freak in freakshow, on broadcast television leading up to the football game. NBC is stealth-substituting Olbermann for Dateline, so beware.

We know the worst cartoon person in the world: Olbermann. And we know the worst cable news network: MSNBC. NBC makes the trifecta.

Don’t watch football on NBC this Sunday.

  1. I really resent NBC pairing my beloved football with Olbermann. He is a buffoon. Next year they will probably choose Michael Vick to join the broadcast team. I protest…

  3. Nice for a show with “No Ratings,” no?

    I may actually start watching football.

    Also, O’Reilly says he’s not partisan. He’s gathered the most Worst Person awards. Are you calling Papa Bear a Republican? We may have to sic the Nation after you. 😉

    Get over it, really. I really don’t understand why you get so worked up over Keith. He has “no ratings” as you all love to say. Don’t tune in until the game starts, or just stop talking about him. Life’s too short 😉

  4. These Rethuglicans (26% dubya supporters) are always so predictable. Olbermann is a true American hero like his own hero, Ed Murrow. As long as the Rethuglican’s dirty tricks clown posse pundits keep trying to destroy their enemies by attacking their patriotism or political bona fides with outright lies, Keith will keep on kicking ass. We will not walk in fear of Rethuglicans.

  5. Chazoo, don’t drive home drunk now. Stay safe.

  6. We will not walk in fear of Rethuglicans.

    That’s what they always say before the conditioning takes.

  7. I want to let nbc and the nfl that putting this goofball Bush hater on football is dumb.

    Does anyone have an email or snail mail address?
