Can't say it's a huge surprise; the show was way too crowded but it looks like Keith Olbermann is out on NBC's Football Night in America.

I liked Olbermann in the olden days at ESPN... but really, the main problem is that they have way too many people in their cast on that show.

I miss Collinsworth actually, since he moved to the broadcast booth... but they really don't need a half dozen guys in there for the discussions.

The old "Prime Time" on ESPN did fine with Tom Jackson and Chris Berman. I'm even fine with the 5-man team (adding Coach Ditka, Chris Carter, & Keyshawn) they have now...

but Sunday Night in America had too many people for the way they were working that show.

I stopped watching the pre-game and half time shows because he was on. Now that he's gone, I'll start watching them again.

Thanks,
Rich

Olbermann lost me when he was the 10pm sports anchor for KTLA 5 in Los Angeles. I'm sorry but political commentary has no business in the middle of college football scores.

I think his politcal views made it harder to watch him doing football. He was great when he was on ESPN but then he started to take him self too seriously I felt. Plus, the whole set was just way too crowded, DP and Costas with one ex player would be fine with me. I am guessing Mike Florio may get a bigger role this upcoming year....I guess we'll see starting Sunday night.
