Olbermann's new show will be called 'Countdown with Keith Olbermann' and will run on Al Gore's Current TV in the exact same timeslot (sorry, Lawrence O'Donnell) as his old MSNBC Countdown show. The show will also repeat in the same timeslots. The first show will air on June 20, 2011 at 8 p.m. ET.
If Olbermann's one million viewers follow him to Current TV, this will be the beginning of America's 2nd viable liberal network:
As Olbermann notes in a video on his FOK News Channel website, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That, and apparently NBCUniversal did not trademark the “Countdown” name.
