A Reason To Turn On The Telly…

keith.jpgJust a reminder for everyone, Keith Olbermann will be doing a special broadcast of Countdown on primetime NBC this evening:

7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT on NBC, leading into the network’s “Sunday Night Football” pre-season NFL matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers, live at 8 p.m. ET. Olbermann is joining the network’s “Football Night in America” studio team this season. The special edition of “Countdown” will be broadcast live from MSNBC’s studios.

Although, according to twolf1, NBC appears to have pulled their press release on this from their website.  What gives, oh network suits?

In any case, in a medium where ratings are the currency of choice, how about we help out the show by turning on the telly to watch a heaping helping of Countdown snark?  If nothing else, O’Reilly will love you for it

Olbermann will also be doing some pre-game coverage of the NFL game this evening.  The fact that I get a Steelers game in the bargain?  Just an added bonus…

PS — A bit of good news for Sen. Tim Johnson, his family and friends.  So glad to hear it.  And TexBetsy sent along a link that says most schools are going the way of green.  Good on them!  (See, I promised something cheerier…)  And for some additional giggles, do peruse this classic orange cheesecake recipe from montag.  Mwahahahahaha…  (H/T to dmac for re-posting it.  Priceless!)
