He's Coming Back-Keith Olbermann

Yesterday, Keith Olbermann confirmed his pending return to television this spring as host of a new primetime news and commentary show on Current TV, a network co-founded by former Vice President Al Gore. The former MSNBC "Countdown" host has reportedly been given an equity stake in Current and will be listed as their "Chief News Officer."

Jean Bentley, TV Squad reporter, said in her article that "Olbermann's fans may have trouble finding his new show on the dial. Current TV is available in 60 million homes, versus MSNBC's 85 million. Plus, while MSNBC is a basic cable channel, Current TV is generally only available to digital cable subscribers. Still, if Current TV can attract some of Olbermann's former 'Countdown' viewers (about 1 million a night), it can only boost their own meager audience (about 23,000 a night)".
