An easy, understandable mistake. :lol:

TV listings: The Prime-Time TV grid in Thursday's Calendar section mistakenly listed MTV's "Jackass" show on the MSNBC cable schedule at 7 and 10 p.m. where instead MSNBC's "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" should have been listed..

He probably got a much bigger audience. ;)

The fact that they printed a correction makes it even more hilarious.

Well, Olberman has always been kind of a jackass even when he was at ESPN before he got unto politics.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Wife said maybe next time the LA Times could 'accidentally' change the 'David Letterman Show' to the same as it would be equally as fitting.
