Olbermann having trouble finding anybody to play in his new sandbox

When last we heard from Keith Olbermann, he was saying even more creepy things about yet another woman who’s way out of his league. Now there’s word that Keith might be having trouble making the transition from his old MSNBC show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, to his upcoming Current TV show… um, Countdown with Keith Olbermann. (Hey, if it don’t work, why fix it?)

Now Keith just needs to hire new people to scream at and blame for his own failures. Get ready for his livid denial of the following from Page Six:

Gasbag Keith Olbermann can’t seem to wrangle staff for his Current TV show, “Countdown.” Still in need of an executive producer and other staff, famously difficult Olbermann has crawled back to his contacts at MSNBC, many of whom he offended while there, to beg for staff. “Everyone is laughing,” said a source. “They would never leave the network to work for him.”

That might seem like a no-brainer, but remember: They work at MSNBC.

Everyone here at KeithOlbermann.com wishes Keith the best of luck in this initial hiring phase. Is he bumping Watch Ed Begley Drink His Own Wee-Wee off the schedule? Or is that on one of those other channels nobody watches?
