“This show works— my husband and I are faithful viewers— and we want Keith around for good. I pray that this is one TV gig that Keith WON’T be fired from. He’s good here at this. -Lynne Nevill, Dallas, TX area,

“When I first saw you, I thought, ‘you’ve got to be kidding!’ But as I’ve watched you, Iam now an advocate of your show. It’s funny. Insightful. Wise and irreverent. Just what we need when stress levels are at 7Gs. You go guy!” Rochelle Sollish, Los Angeles, but really a New Yorker

“Boy, when you came back I was so happy, but the show is even better than I had hoped. Thanks to you and your staff for the hard work and fun you bring and share with us every night. And thanks for no shouting guests, but informative talking instead. The shouting and bickering is so annoying.” -Mary Hatleberg, Cornell, WI

“Dear Mr. Olbermann, I am writing to say that you are a breath of fresh air in the world of the typical, boring, unimaginative world of news and I look forward to Countdown every night, and really miss it on the weekends (I know you need some time off). ;-) Not only is it the manner in which you deliver the news, mixed with the right amount of truth, cynicism and humor, but also the professionalism of your demeanor, dress and manner that attracts myself and numerous other viewers to the show. I’m not an avid news watcher, I grab the headlines, but because of your show, I now know more about what is going on in the world than ever before, and I simply enjoy the hour that Countdown is on. When you were ill and not able to host it the other day, while I know your colleague tried to do a good job, it wasn’t you and it wasn’t the same. I hope MSNBC knows what a gem they have in you!” -Amber Hazard, RN, North Carolina Viewer

“Thank you, thank you, thank you for ‘Countdown.’ This is a marvelous show. It is a great vehicle for Keith’s sardonic wit and humor. I especially like it when the studio crew laughs at his jokes on air. Unlike his previous news show, Keith seems much more comfortable with this format. By the way, whoever designed the graphics is a genius. This is a perfect way to end a busy day. I rest easier knowing Keith is manning the ramparts.” -Simeon Grater, Carbondale, IL

“I just want to thank Keith and all the writers, producers, editors and technicians involved in Countdown, for bringing real excellence to the airwaves. The continual daily content and fine delivery are second-to-none. Goodbye fury Animal network.” -John Mates, Seattle, WA

“Mr. Olbermann, I have been lucky enough to be one of your viewers since day one at MSNBC. I love it. You’ve found your niche. I have been a fan for years, but the NEWS suits you. Keep up the good work, I’ll be watching.” -David Porter, Phoenix, Az.

“Just a line to tell you I think you are the best person to come on T.V. in years. Never miss a show. I love your very dry funny humor. Keep up the news and fun we need all we can get. Thanks again for being a breath of fresh air.” -Patsy

“Dear Keith, I have been watching your Countdown since it started and I love it. You make me laugh and always have some great twist on the ordinary news. I like your wit and sarcasm, it’s about time the news got a does of reality. Thanks for what you do. Keep up the good work.” -MaryKate Sullivan
