Current TV ousts talk show host Keith Olbermann

NEW YORK (AP) – Current TV has dismissed Keith Olbermann from its talk-show lineup after less than a year.

The left-leaning cable network announced late Friday afternoon that “Countdown,” the show Olbermann has hosted on Current since last June, would be replaced with a show hosted by former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, beginning Friday night.

“Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer” will air weeknights at 8 p.m. Eastern time. Spitzer had a short-lived talk show on CNN in that same time slot, and briefly competed with Olbermann.

The sometimes volatile Olbermann came to Current last year as the centerpiece of its new prime-time initiative after a stormy eight-year stint at MSNBC – his second – followed by his abrupt departure in January 2011.

Shortly after, Current announced his hiring, as the start of an effort to transform the network’s prime-time slate into progressive talk. His official title was that of chief news officer, charged with providing editorial guidance for all of the network’s political news, commentary and current events programming.

When you’re too big a douche to work for Al Gore, YOU ARE A BIG DOUCHE… :P

Or, as Joe Biden might say, “This is a big f’ing douche.” :?

And adding insult to injury, how big a blow can this be to the ego when you can be replaced by Eliot Spitzer and your former boss thinks that’s a GOOD thing?

You’ve been fired from MSNBC and NBC Sports because you’re a total loser, then you’re fired from Current TV, what’s next? Air America is out of business, maybe he can get a job as a *copy boy* for Media Matters. LMAO :P

    Knew Olbermann was a loser but didn’t know how bad until Al Gore fired him.

  2. This almost isn’t worthy of covering.

    Keith OlberMANN is nothing more than a

    LOOO-

    ZERRRR. . .

    He’s simply inconsequential any more.

    OLBERMANN = zero.

    I suspect he could make some nice sandwiches at Togos, however.

    Or press some combo icons at McDonalds. . .

  3. K.O. has been, as you said nothing more than a
    Zero, he deserves what he sewed.

  4. Charley says:

    One of the reasons Olbroad and I moved to TN was that Algore lost in his own state when he ran for POTUS. There is a wonderful irony when a loser fires a loser. As far as Olberman goes – couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. :)

  5. Bunkerville says:

    Nice to hear a bit of good news. Next on the list, the MSNBC crowd.

  6. mrchuck says:

    He can go work for the “Remember TRAVON Group”.

  7. One final note:

    I don’t think Olbermann has been fired, yet, from my local high school closed circuit news show yet.

    So there’s always hope.

  8. Mayhaps he could get a job as a traffic reporter in Dallas..? Another no win position that someone such as himself could only make worse…

  9. Pretty bad when a left wing hater is so hateful that he ends up getting fired by Al Bore! I don’t thing there is a job which this Loser would be well suited for unless it was stealing candy from little kids.
