Olbermann Defends His Ratings; Says "Right Wing" Wants His Show Canceled - Video 2/4/2010

Here is video of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann last night, defending his ratings and saying "the Right Wing wishes this show was canceled." But Olbermann contended that his show's ratings actually grew from December - January in comparison to CNN.

Grew from what? As the old saying goes, "It's hard to fall off the floor." Yet here is the full picture on the ratings - not the "cherry-picked" ones that Olbermann gives to try and make his show look like it is doing well:

25-54 demographic: (L +SD)

Total day: FNC: 451 | CNN: 131 | MSNBC: 97 | HLN: 155

Prime: FNC: 758 | CNN: 147 | MSNBC: 219 | HLN: 218
  5p: 6p: 7p: 8p: 9p: 10p: 11p:
FNC Beck: Baier: Shep: O'Reilly: Hannity: Greta: O'Reilly:
  722 547 504 1041 663 568 575
CNN Blitzer: Blitzer: Blitzer: Brown: King: Cooper: Cooper:
  93 133 132 161 141 140 172
MSNBC Matthews: EdShow: Matthews: Olbermann: Maddow: Olbermann: Maddow:
  57 74 151 256 193 205 128
HLN Prime: Prime: Issues: Grace: Behar: Grace: Showbiz:
  75 123 188 323 143 203 165

As you can see, if you combine Olbermann's show at 8:00 PM ET with Campbell Brown on CNN and Nancy Grace on Headline News, you still only have 70% of O'Reilly's audience alone. Olbermann is only beating poor Campbell Brown. Even Nancy Grace is well ahead of him.

This act belongs on the comedy channel. Olbermann's a joke!

He is a joke, Moe. But no one is laughing. Or is that because no one is watching?

Sideshow Bob you have ratings and don't let anybody tell you different. Remember you are comic genius amongst the peons, a veritable literati of comic wit, set in the droll, cultural backwaters of red-state ratings -- yes, an unsympathetic wasteland to be sure, inhabited by rednecks with their Nascar and their tailgate parties and their Easy Rider rifle racks. Don't be disheartened (cue creepy music). REVENGE WILL BE YOURS!!!!
