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.
