    This is ridiculous I'm blocking this channel in parental controls. No one will watch it anyway. Current will disappear within months. Just watch...

    The best thing to do is block Current from every DVR, cable box in your home and elsewhere. Use the parental controls. No one will see Current ever again. Bad move firing Olbermann Current.

    Could this be merely a ratings war to be resolved just in time for May sweeps???

    If not, I won't be watching CURRENT again -- I'm sure Al and Joel realize that Keith was their cash cow, and the rest of their lineup just as limp as day old pasta...

    I was especially disappointed in Jennifer Granholm, who I truly respect as a politician, but her show made the grave error of hosting claimed 'insiders' of the DNC who weren't really insiders at all or part of the DNC, including Chris Lehane and Susan Kennedy whose public service has been a disgrace to ethics and simple human decency...

    Susan Kennedy served Arnold Schwarznegger's administration and Lehane has run every conservaDem campaign since Clint Reilly retired from doing so, including the biggest single CORPORATE WELFARE project in Sacramento history for an arena nearly COMPLETELY funded with public money built to NBA specs in a city that needs CLEAN DRINKING WATER instead...

    With Democratic friends like these, who needs the GOP???

    No Keith Olbermann, no Current TV.
    I would not go to Charter Cable TV because they didn't carry Current TV but my DirecTV did and I watch Keith Olbermann.
    I will not be watching ANY Current TV programs now that Keith is gone

    Sorry it's not a question but a comment from a STRONG Democrat and consistently progressive supporter of Current and other progressive programming. Not a good move firing Olbermann. I used to LOVE MSNBC's one two punch of Olbermann and Maddow. Maddow is a must and Olbermann was for me as well. He is the king of news commentary and you are wrong NO ONE can take his place.

    I do love Eliot Spitzer whose fall from grace was to me a tragedy. The man had VP or presidential possibilities written all over him. His actions are hard to ignore but I do try. Personally, I loved him on CNN and was shocked at his leaving there. Now he will be on at 8:00p.m. Sorry but I gave up watching Ed Schultz for watching Olbermann. He was always first on my list. Now that he is not on I found myself deleting the tape of Spitzer and will return to a damn good, commentator Ed Schultz. He has great charisma similar to Keith.

    I think you have made an egregious error combined with the POOR technological programming of Current you are lowered to amateur status among the other highest professional commentary. Vice President Gore, I voted for you and cried when you lost. I am SHOCKED that both of you could not come to some resolution of differences in view of the audience to whom you owe everything.

    Sad, big money cannot appreciate what it has and just try to get along. Isn't that what liberals are SUPPOSED to do? You blew it and unless Olbermann returns, Current make its broadcast technologically sophisticated to compete with MSNBC and even Fox then I do not foresee a positive future for the network.

Seems like Mr. Gore has blown it again like he did in 2000. Beam me up Scotty. There is no intelligent life here.

    Agree totally .. what a lousy decision. Current's line up Cenk I happen to like a lot BUT the format is AWFUL and he sometimes is TOO bloviating his "of course" gets tiresome. It looks like he's broadcasting from a cellar but I guess it's better than the fog. Really bad..You guys need HDTV desperately. Format never improved. Most have HDTV why on earth would someone watch Current if not for Keith. Cenk's pals in the background look like they are surfing the net. there is not one except maybe Sheur and Anna who are decent but the others do NOTHING!

    The black background you gave Keith was a JOKE. Do you think we are IDIOTS???? I love Jennifer Granholm as a guest not as a commentator. The show is boring..sorry because I really like her.

    Mr. Gore,
    You and your company has made a BIG MISTAKE, in dumping Keith. I only watched Countdown on your networkand only when Keith was on. If you do not find a way to fix your relationship with Keith and bring him and Countdown back your network is doomed.

    Well at least on Tuesday nights I don't have to choose between recording or watching NCIS, Ed, or Keith.

    Current will fold like a cheap card table.

    Likewise. The only reason for checking out Current TV in the first place was because Keith was going to be on, and he's the only reason I've watched at all. If he's gone, so am I.

    Absolutely Agree with Trapper. Now its in the a.m. and another day. Instead of dealing with it and shrugging my shoulders I get ANGRIER! Why? Because these gd primadonnas who are Gd LUCKY to have such great careers and TONS of bucks ALL of them but especially the owners of Current. Current COULD have been great, it had ALL the potential so instead of TRYING to meet Keith's demands because there is NO ONE -- let me say that again -- NO ONE like him. I LOVED that guy warts and all. NO ONE on planet earth is perfect. And Al Gore and his other partner DISAPPOINTS me so. I LOVED him as a presidential candidate. SO he wanted to deal with the complex world situations and now he cannot even deal with the star of his programming??? PHOOEY on all of you. I'm MAD and jealous because I know the art of compromise and it to me is SO easy. You don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    And the hubris to say "everyone is replaceable" WELL NO everyone is NOT replaceable. JFK, RFK, MLK THEY were NOT replaceable and our country is F*&^%$ because their lives were cut short. I'm not comparing Keith to them before anyone gets their panties in a twist but I am saying, Al Gore and the other guy I can't remember his name -- YOU ARE WRONG--CONSUMMATELY WRONG and because you cannot work this out like ADULTS I will NEVER tune Current in again. I'm MAD, furious and yes, jealous because if I had your luck in life I would be humble and thank god for my good fortune and work disputes out. And all both of you can do is write a RIDICULOUS letter to us? NOT ONLY that there was NOT ONE WORD not ONE from Cenk, Eliot or anyone the obvious donkey in the room (won't say elephant!). GET ON to yourselves...your network is DONE with out Keith and without the technological professionalism that is MSNBC and even dare I say even Fox. MAD utterly loyal follower! I'm wounded and upset and that's my problem BUT the success of one other lonely progressive show hangs twisting in the wind ready to fall off at any moment!

    The only reason I started to watch Current TV was cause Keith O. was hired to have a show on the channel. Now that he is gone so am I. It's the principle of it in my opinion. While I'm a liberal progressive and enjoy the new format of shows for all there candor and faithfulness to the ideals i hold sacred the fact you released Keith O. I no longer will tune in to any show on your channel. All those years ago I started with Mr. Olbermann on MSNBC and his lively approach and wiliness to speak truth to power an tell it like it was made MSNBC a must watch for any lib/prog believer. He deserved far better then the way u have mistreated his legacy. Keith made it cool to be a liberal/progressive again as far as I was concerned cause he had the guts to call out all the faux news phonies and crap they put out there. My family will stop watching now Current TV sadly and all its programming even though we love all the new shows catering to a left wing idealism. MSNBC will get all our viewership now an we will wait again patiently for the man Keith to get his next show up and running. Shame on you VP Gore an current tv. What possessed you to pull a crummy act like this.

    everyone is NOT replaceable, and because of that I will no longer be watching Current. Because your station is now doing well, it seems you have forgotten who got it there. Do you really believe your ratings and money will still remain as high? wake up! I, for one, will never be watching your station again. Good job!

    jfar agree. I keep posting because I just am loathing what was done and cannot believe it. I re-read the To our Viewers post and think it ridiculous and anemic. Keith if you are reading any of these at all. I will follow you to the moon (not the same moon as Gingrich) if necessary.

    I know i"ve stated it but truly I think I am one of his most loyal and loving fans as I am with Rachel Maddow too. They give me hope, are wonderful each in their own way, most of all charismatic. They represent the ying and yang of good political delivery. Rachel is sweet, funny and utterly brilliant; Keith is utterly brilliant but serious. I LOVE both tactics. They are for our cause when too little of our cause is shown. We must search to find it through the mud of Fox Citizen's United media poison.

    Keith, please, find another format. You are my King of Commentary and I will always love you. I will go where you are!

    You have some good people with the documentaries you have on and I like Jennifer Granholm as well as Eliot Spitzer but watch them because of Keith Olberman. With him not there to attract the "clicker" I am sure that current won't be my go to channel till he returns. You let your star attraction get away so you should try real hard to get him back.

  • I was looking forward to the shows in the morning from Current. "Was." But with this truly awful management of your affairs, I think Current doesn't need my viewing time anymore.
    • I agree completely - I've been recording the 3 hours Cenk, Keith, and Jennifer were on so I could watch the next morning when not much else was on. As soon as I looked on Huffington Post and saw the header I immediately erased the recording and changed the channel (I usually leave it on current in my office but no more). Keith is the reason I started watching Current to begin with and was really looking forward to the added lineups of Bill Press and Stephanie Miller but will just leave the TV off now unless Current comes to their senses and gets Keith back (anytime he had a substitute I was extremely disappointed so now no reason to watch).

    Bad idea to let go of Keith. He was the best thing on Current TV. Some of the shows, although with good progressives like Cenk Uygur, are hard to watch.

    This sounds more like some producer, like and administrator, who wants to run things based on a method they learned in school or a formula they picked up at a broadcasting conference, but it's a bad idea. Maybe this Joel guy was acting like a princess and didn't appreciate the talent telling him how to things should be.

    I don't need to see witty repartee between host or see them in promos together - NOT NECESSARY!

    I especially do NOT want to watch the "panels of morons". They remind me of all those IGNORANT reality shows where anyone might be kicked off the next segment for not getting out their talking point. That's one of the reasons I stopped watching CNN.

    I watch Keith to see and hear Keith's perspective and appreciate his analysis, not those of political talking-heads who just spew talking point after talking point regardless of the facts being presented, or shill their most recent book.

    More of the same bad decision making like when Al Gore didn't have Pres Clinton campaign with him - cutting off his nose to spite his face.

    The fact is that Keith's show is good and he knows how to make it work.

    He was one of, if not the first to stand up to the Bush crime family in their rush to war with Iraq - UNLIKE ALL THE GUTLESS DEMOCRATS who still can't manage to stand up to oil companies and stop the INSANE subsidies 'cause the big, bad oil companies will run ads against them saying they are taxing the oil companies and that tax will be passed on to consumers. What CRAP!

    To Al Gore and Joel Hyatt,

    You two idiots are nothing more than a couple of ingrates to treat Keith Olbermann this way. Nobody even heard of this channel before Keith Olbermann brought his show to it. The only reason why you have your Politically Direct lineup in primetime and the the two morning shows is because of Keith Olbermann. Now that you have all of these great progressive voices hosting other programs, you think you can just kick him to the curb after all he did for your network? You idiots should be ashamed of yourselves! You just used him to lift your network out of obscurity and refused to give him a descent studio to broadcast from. You never showed any appreciation for all that he did for your network, and you do not deserve to have him on your network. I hope he finds another network to help, the same way he helped MSNBC and crushes Current in the ratings. There's no way Elliot Spitzer will be able to draw as many viewers as Keith Olbermann. I and many other viewers will refuse to watch this show out of respect for Keith. I also hope Keith kicks your behinds in court and hope that your network descends back down to obscurity where it belongs.

    Whilst MSNBC is actually my nightly viewing staple; I have always tried to watch Current T/V’s Countdown with Mr. Keith Olbermann! I think his leaving will be quite a blow to many watchers, and result in a loss of viewers to Current overall!
    I disagree with those who will never watch Current T/V again, as I think that they still have quite a fine line up! However none of those, including Gov. Spitzer, have what Mr. Olbermann was able to bring to the National discourse!
    I wish Mr. Olbermann every success in his future endeavors, and look forward to seeing and hearing his new show, wherever he chooses to appear!
    I posted a comment on the “Problem” site regarding this!

    I don't know what the problem was but it was a fatal mistake by Al and the boys as far as this viewer is concerned!

    My sentiment exactly. Also a big Keith fan, big mistake on Current's part. I have Charter cable and couldn't get Current, but my neighbor and I would watch him on their Direct TV. Finally was going to make the move and switch my cable service, so I could see him every night, but now...moot point. I agree totally with your comment on virtues and Spitzer. Liberals aren't sheep like right wingers, we read, blog, pay attention to facts and remember history.

    When you got rid of Kieth Olberman you are taking a big chance that your little network will fail. I like your other hosts. But lets face it. They are no Kieth Olberman. I for one will no longer watch current tv. With out Kieth. No reason to. So ta ta current.

    Totally correct.

    I don't know if others are putting out stuff to diminish Keith and truthfully it does take two to proverbially tango. What I do NOT get is why on god's earth did Keith sign up for Current KNOWING it would be so technologically spartan. He must have known the format was awful. Gore et al have tons of bucks that we know but it does take bizillions to get a technologically well managed and appearing set I am sure.

    Still my point is ALL parties should have sat down and calmly as possible save what is a promising progressive station. How hard is that to do? Keith has had run ins with two other big deal networks ..who can know ALL the details. My first thought is to our progressive much maligned group and the humanitarian issues we represent...our nation SO needs our voice a strong voice and our planet needs to be saved from these immoral swine who care nothing about anyone but themselves and would rather sink a planet than save it. How much contempt I have for so called "conservatives" cannot be measured as there is nothing to describe the intensity of it.

    I am not thinking about Current's individuals I am, as the Elizabeth Cady Stanton documentary said, NOT FOR OURSELVES ALONE. Progressives and other liberals are at our core empathetic and humane human beings and Keith was a STRONG voice in the wilderness for that. We need him and I THOUGHT he and Current needed us as well!

    I want the dispute just to go away, make nice and simply get along the best you can. The stakes are SO high now and just when we need Keith the most this dispute occurs. Sad. Please isn't there SOMETHING anyone can do?

    I guess KO's voice was a little to loud for Gore and Hyatt who are just wolves parading around in sheep's clothing. You can't have a revolutionary TV station without outspoken anti-Establishment anchors. I guess he crossed the line too many times speaking out against some of Gore and Hyatt's cronies. Back to MSNBC for me.

  • Watching The Ed Show right now, he's pretty good. Ed is the man for me now until Keith finds another home. Everyone should try it.

    How could you possibly fire Keith? So he didn't want to cover the primaries and be the voice of the left, big deal. People like myself that watched Keith faithfully for years didn't want to see that crap anyway. If we wanted to watch a 60 minute news program that talked nothing but mainstream politics, we'd watch MSNBC. Fans of Keith love him because he didn't want to cover that side (freak) show - it's all lies anyway. Do you think those of us that watched Keith are going to watch Spitzer or that twit Granholm? THEY SUCK. I hope Al Gore's attempt of making his own left wing news station (aka MSNBC 2.0) fails miserably. We don't need another crappy cable news network that covers the same BS that the rest are talking about. I hope Al Gore is forced to pay Keith every penny of his contract.

    GIVE US A TRUE PROGRESSIVE NOT THE DEMOCRATS MASKED AS PROGRESSIVES THAT YOU HAVE ON NOW.

    I can't believe you fired Keith Olbermann. He's the reason I came to Current TV and he is the reason I will leave it. If I weren't subscribed to other channels in the same package, I would drop your programming altogether. Be assured, I will not watch Elliot Spitzer!! Nobody can replace Keith.

  • Well, back to MSNBC for me, at least there's Hardball and Maddow to watch there.
    • maddow and schultz I like, but I call Chris Matthews' show "softball". Check out the RT News channel... specifically, the Alyona Show. "what the main stream media missed" is a great opening on her show. Production is not "slick", but they cover real news that everyone else is avoiding while they talk instead about whether romney farted today.

    I subcribed to a premium cable package expressly to watch Keith on Current TV -
    will be cancelling now. I like Stephanie and Bill Press, but can listen for no charge to them on the radio. I like Spitzer, but he belongs in the administration - not so compelling on TV. Besides, I can see him on the political talk shows ..... No one
    provides the cutting edge that Keith does. He didn't offend me - and so what if he
    did. It would probably have been with the truth. This is so disappointing!

    I do not know why some of my comments appear in triplicate another Current technological screw up. I just wrote a long one because i am so frustrated with this and naturally it did not let it post so I kept trying. It may appear multiple times proof positive that Current is technologically bad! Apologies if you read some more than once.

    As to what I said before which Current did not print. I'm angry because the opposition party if you want to call it a party is anti academic, anti science and that alone makes me furiously angry. How in hell is a culture going to advance if it denies science and academia? Case in point: Santorum the jerk says yesterday that the entire college system in California omits American history from its courses. WHAT???? Is this guy an idiot? NO, he appeals to his know nothing party to get elected. THAT"S the problem the composition of this vile party.

    We NEED the Olbermann's MORE THAN EVER for so many reasons and policies that will DOOM our nation if these vipers in the Republicrat Party gain power. Keith was the king of commentary and they take the strongest voice we have and ditch him? This was supposed to save him and they do the opposite. I cannot believe it.

    There is method to my anger: I had polio a HUGE catastrophe in my life. Why did I get it? Because I was born six months too early for the vaccine. How are vaccines created? Through SCIENCE. These rightwing DUMB asses eschew science that their own lives benefit from. It makes me SICK to deny the human proclivity to improve his culture through a logical thinking brain. If the right wingnut kids are not paralyzed from polio THANK the scientists built on the shoulders of other scientists -- thank Salk/Sabin but before him Jenner and Lister. My point: WE NEED SCIENCE and intellect to advance. If you know anything about the biological sciences you know that EVOLUTION -- A FACT these Republican jerkos deny, is very much a part of it. Keeping our nation disease free depends on our knowing the truths of science and evolution because even a virus is smarter than a wingnut Tea Bagger. It knows how to morph and evade attempts to keep the body healthy even THEIR bodies.

    I cannot STAND anti intellectual, anti academics, anti science. I cannot stand it when religion puts barbed wire around the human brain and THAT is what the Republican Party is about now that they have become an extremist party. They are danger personified. And THAT is why we need Olbermann. He is our voice against it, he is our voice for humanitarian policies, he is our voice against corporate greed and against forces that will keep the few rich while the rest perish. He is a voice against the cruelties of a conservative court who care ONLY for the wealthy and are poised to ditch health care created with such difficulty. Is it perfect? Hell no but neither was Social Sec. when started and this rancid Republican Party even wants to ditch that.

    WE NEED OLBERMANN and I am sad that his voice for us the 99% is silenced. I want it back, I want it loud and I want it crystal clear that these swine Republicans cannot get away with destroying the nation!

    Bring back Keith Olbermann. I don't care how you do it. You created the problem. You knew how Keith is to work with, and you knew how we, the audience, love him.

    His show was true class. Without Keith, I'm not going to watch Current TV.

    I'm going back to MSNBC and will watch Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow.

    I really can't believe your stupidity, ego, and lack of respect for Keith Olbermann, who brought his viewers to your struggling channel.

    Wake up. Realize the wrong you've done. Bring back Keith!
