Does anybody think the writers strike is gonna result in a big increase of hardcore Olbermann fans ?
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:29 PM by Bombtrack
I know that whenever I get my fill of other daily shows I'm a fan of (Daily Show, Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel) I sometimes don't always make time for Keith, although I've considered myself basically a fan for years, watching 2 or 3 times a week give or take.

But since that hour and a half of shows I love and thrive on has been stuck in repeats for so long I find myself eating up every minute of Countdown.

I wonder how many people who miss the shows I like as well as the likes of Letterman, Conan, and of course Real Time with Bill Maher, have been tuning over to Keith for their fill of topical irreverance and pop culture skewering.

1. Either that or a lot hardcore porn downloading. I am personally pulling for Keith.

4. My problem is I don't get to watch Countdown until 9PM.
And by then, I am either out catching some live music or I am sitting home, miserable and too whacked to pay attention.

3. One can only hope. *sniff*
The best show on a news channel, hands down. Thank god for Olbermann, Stewart and a dash of Colbert.

5. Glad to hear Olbermann is doing better all the time
with more and more fans. I watch when I can. I work nights 2-8pm so watch on nights I am home.
