    Olbermann's 'Countdown' returns on Current TV - CNN.com

    Does anyone know what current TV is? Is it even a real station?

    I generally consider Olberman to be a hack ever since he left ESPN but I found this line from the article pretty damn funny and had to post it.

    Really? I'm shocked that this show may lean to the left.

    Lean left? That's like saying Hannity leans right.

    If its on DirecTV, it ain't on my preferred list. Of course, MSNBC wasn't either.

    Love the new avatar, in a way it is still (at least one) a boob.

    Cable's Least Wanted: 10 channels that could be replaced by Al Jazeera and no one would care

    Current was watched in 18,000 households in prime time last fall. No channel measured by Nielsen draws a smaller audience

    KO drew 179000 for his premiere. I wonder what it will be in a month? He does have some fanatical followers though.
