The Hollywood Reporter has some less-than surprising news: Eliot Spitzer can’t even hold on to Keith Olbermann’s puny audience at Current TV. The paper’s headline said “predictably plummet.” Compared to Olbermann’s average in March, over the same time period, Nielsen has Spitzer’s four-week average down 62 percent with adults 25-54 (14,000, down from 38,000) and 68 percent with total viewers (46,000, down from 145,000). The demo average managed to reach 19,000 in its second week, but dropped to 12,000 in the third and just 9,000 in the fourth.
I’m sure he could find some Republican-in-name-only sparring partner to spruce it up. The paper tried to soften up the bad news by explaining other shows have dramatically improved in the ratings — from when the channel was running unnoticed documentaries. Call it Cenk TV
