Patrick Still Knows How To Get On Olbermann's Nerves

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Fang's Bites pointed out an interesting exchange between Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick about 20 minutes ago, and I thought I'd share the video. Patrick was trying to make a political parallel for Olbermann to jump on, but the MSNBCer didn't bite. Patrick then decided to break out the big guns....Bill O'Reilly....



Now that's funny. You could see Olbermann start to get pissed off, but then immediately relax. I'm pretty sure no one else could get away with that.

Olberman is just pissed because O'Reilly gets better ratings than him.

How can keith "not talk about politics during the pre game" if Dan is going to do that?

"The Hoodie" isn't all that bad with anaylsis.

Bill O'Reilly is smiling because he gets 3 times the viewers that Olberdouche gets.


NBC: Fire that douchebag.

This pre-game show is actually slowly starting to get better.

That O'Reilly joke by Patrick was hilarious. And was that a "Here we go Bill-O" chant by the crowd at the end?

why anyone would like Bill O'Reilly I'd never know. I think this pregame show hasn't been that bad actually. The Super Suite thing is cheesy, but everything else isn't so bad for me

@ Cruesome, what ratings are you seeing?

Cruesome is right in that O'Reilly gets 3x more viewers than Olbermann but most of O'Reilly's viewers are outside of the key advertising demo (25-54). In that key demo, O'Reilly and Olbermann are neck-and-neck with O'Reilly edging out Olbermann on most nights.

Orally though has the key demo in one fact: his average viewer age is deceased!

One of the reasons O'Reilly gets more viewers is because Fox's cable station is on basic cable whereas MSNBC is on a paid tier.

One of the reasons O'Reilly gets more viewers is because viewers have trouble sitting through 20 minute frothing, lunatic rantings with stilted language, weird sentence structure, elitism, weird hair, women's glasses on a guy, and extreme idiotic leftism...

That's what you get with the Olby. What will he do with a leftist government in place...what will he do.

My contribution to the ratings: 0

That's the only number I care about.

They can both DIAF.
