NBC News announced Thursday that Olbermann had agreed to four more years at the MSNBC prime-time show “Countdown.” His contract was due to expire in March. Besides feuding with Fox News Channel’s O’Reilly, Olbermann has become a liberal hero. He has seen his ratings increase since launching a series of anti-President George W. Bush commentaries late last summer. Olbermann’s viewership in January was up 85 percent over January 2006, according to Nielsen Media Research. He’s still in O’Reilly’s shadow: The Fox show has averaged 2.4 million viewers so far this year while Olbermann, in the same time slot, has averaged 672,000. last_img read more
