My boyfriend's back, and there's gonna be trouble....
Hey la, hey la, my Keith kicked ass

Olbermann's TV ratings:

We've received the Nielsen fast-national ratings (not the actual national ratings) and have a sense of how last night's Countdown with Keith Olbermann did in its premiere on NBC. The upshot: in total viewers it beat "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" on Fox. But finished behind "60 Minutes" and "America's Funniest Videos." 4,146,000 total viewers watched.

Countdown finished fourth in the 18-49 and 25-54 demos.

Did you hear that? My boyfriend finished 4th on his first night on a Big 3 Network. Over 4 million viewers! I can't wait to take him out for a celebration dinner. ... as soon as I meet him. Shut up.

Aaron Barnhart of that plain-worthy state, Missouri wrote about it in his blog

>More: An emailer writes, "4M one hell of a sampling...I wouldn't kiss that number off." For context: Olbermann averaged 721,000 viewers each night in July. Almost 6 times as many watched last night.

SIX times as many! Okay, we had to wait until 10 freakin' p.m. to see him. But it was worth it for those numbers.

HA! Take that, Billo!

So when are they giving him his own network spot?

Come on, NBC, you know you could. And Billo would have his head explode, so everyone's happy.
Especially me.
Hey, Laffy, time for margaritas in celebration, isn't it?
We can both swoon and giggle like the junior high girls we really are. As long as it doesn't end in a catfight...

It would never end in a catfight. Peace, love, and...margaritas!


God, we are so jr. high.

I'll kick both yr butts!!!

He's 2 years, 2 days older than me, which makes him a fellow Aquarius, he's got eye problems just like me and I'm tall enough that there wouldn't be any ahem, height issues at delicate times.

/this is Paddy

So, you want to join our junior high margarita and Keith fan club?
All are welcome.
At least, I think that.
Laffy? Is there enough KEITH to go around?

At 7:38 PM, Blogger Terrible said...

I'll take a pass on the girls fan club. But WOOHOO!! GO KEITH!!!!

Paddy's in. She's got Cheetos. And she's been in the margarita circle for some time.

And she can take on anyone. We want her on our side.

Terrible, that works for us. Any fan of Keith is a drinking pal of, a friend of ours.

I thought I had a chance GL!

I'm not a real lawyer, but I play one on the internet.

Olbermann had better watch his back!

BTW, is this crew like Cliff's Angels? That would be thuper!

At 8:06 PM, Blogger GottaLaff said...

Nah. Cliff's our angel. We're the boss.

He just doesn't know it.

Keith was great, but still got beat by America's Funniest. Memo to Keith... for your next special, take a golf club hit to the groin with funny sound effects. Just trying to help.

Your boyfriend?

If that's a pic of you in the uper right part of the screen you aren't helping your cause by calling him your boyfriend.

At 8:29 PM, Blogger GottaLaff said...

Now, now anon. I think I speak for all of us when I say, the images on the screen are not representative of the exquisitely good-looking female writers of this blog.

The rest is up to your imagination.

We are smoking hot, that's for sure.
Brains, beauty, and drunk. How can any man resist?
We have officially left junior high and hit the freshman year at college...

Did any of you see the comments by Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post on his Monday on-line chat? He basically said Keith is just a Bush Basher and that NBC ought to offer equal time to conservatives since they gave an hour to Keith. Oh my gawd, what universe is Mr Kurtz living in? 90% of all pundits and talkers on TV are conservatives. Keith gets ONE hour, which NBC didn't even promote, and Mr Kurtz is all upset and says NBC made a big mistake? I'm speechless.

At 9:28 AM, Blogger Kirsten said...

Kurtz is an idiot.

At 12:38 PM, Blogger GottaLaff said...

So typical. So obnoxiously typical. Thanks, Donna Halper.

Got it. You're sporting the pants, he's got the halo. Somebody's got to be the pure soul.
