...which is not a bad thing. Well, maybe not exactly the same. Keith Olbermann professed a great deal more freedom to say what he wants without being censored by his supervisors. (It might be an amusing aspect for the show, if he put a sort of asterisk up in the corner of the screen during every story which he knows would've gotten killed on his old network. ) Anyway. Differences? Well, I noticed that he doesn't actually count down his stories anymore. "Our fifth story on the Countdown...." And his special comment was, thank goodness, only a few minutes long. (I always thought he got way too overwound and long-winded on those.) Other than that: familiar guests (Michael Moore, John Dean), familiar segments (Worst Person, a renamed "Oddball" clone), familiar music (Rossini's "Thieving Magpie"), familiar type of set, familiar interstitials, and of course the same show title, albeit with new opening credits. In point of fact, I like the open. You know that, if Keith had stayed at MSNBC, sooner or later he would've had a freshened-up open anyway. Well, this looked like that. Same structure, different look (in tune with Current's overall look), but overall very comfortable for faithful KO viewers. So overall, Keith and Current did a really nice job of moving the show to another network. Good work.
