Keith Olbermann’s Ratings on Current Drop in Week 2, Still Way Bigger Than Current’s Tiny Pre-Olbermann Average
Ratings for Countdown with Keith Olbermann fell to an average of a 93,000 viewers in the advertising-targets adults 25-54 demo, and 253,000 total viewers in the show’s second week on Current.
That’s down 29% from the first week’s average. Current boasts that its still way (way, way) above the relative handful (15,000 viewers) who watched Current at 8pm ET in the four week’s before Olbermann debuted. Particularly considering the hype of the premiere week the declines don’t seem that dramatic.
