We haven't heard much from Keith Olbermann since he left his cushy position at MSNBC in January and signed up with Current TV shortly thereafter, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been planning. The outspoken anchor announced on Tuesday that his new show has as title and a premiere date, one of which will sound very familar.
The Current TV Olbermann show will be called—drum roll, please—Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Which, you'll recall, is the same name as Olbermann's former MSNBC telecast. The nightly show is scheduled to kick off at 8 p.m. on June 20.
Same name, same time, same host, different network. Will fans find Olbermann on the lowly rated cable channel? That's the million dollar question, one that Olbermann hopes to have a positive answer for.
