Olbermann gets tryout on primetime NBC slot.

TV Newser reports, “Countdown with Keith Olbermann is getting a tryout on NBC.” Countdown will air before NBC’s broadcast of this Sunday’s pre-season game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. NBC senior vice president Phil Griffin said, “The world has changed, and I think people have come in line with the smart, focused approach [Keith] has on the show.” In April, NBC announced Olbermann would be joining the roster of NBC’s “Football Night in America” pregame show. And Griffin adds, “It may be the first of several times you see Olbermann on the network.”
