Jimmy Kimmel's watching nobody listening.
Ex-Fox News guy, current National Journal Hill correspondent Major Garrett on the departure of Keith Olbermann from MSNBC, his arrival at Current TV, and chances of success there:
The problem for current TV is a lot like what UHF & FM stations went through technically: Not everybody will be able to get them on their sets without an expensive upgrade. Some cable systems don't carry the station at all, or it's in a expanded digital service tier which needs an external converter box... As an independent channel, they lack the bargaining power for placement within two digit analog basic cable.
