Keith Olbermann's Current TV Show to Air Opposite MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell (Report)
The former "Countdown" host will keep his 8 p.m. slot, pitting him against the anchor who replaced him and longstanding rival Bill O'Reilly.
Keith Olbermann's new Current TV show will air at 8 p.m. ET, according to the New York Times' Brian Stelter, who tweeted the news Wednesday.
That means the former Countdown host will keep his same time slot -- and face off against Lawrence O'Donnell, who replaced him at MSNBC.
He also will continue to go up against his Fox News rival Bill O'Reilly.
Olbermann's Current show will likely premiere in late May, when the non-compete clause in his exit agreement with NBC Universal will have reached its conclusion.
