Countdown with Keith Olbermann saw its lowest viewing average in over two years, since April 2008.   And while Keith was out for a few days during the month, that's pretty customary in the summer, just like it was last summer.  Only the numbers were higher then.

Below is a list of low weeks going back to the beginning of 2008 sorted from lowest to highest.  Last week's is marked in red, but for anyone who has trouble picking that up, it's the third row from the top.
