Keith Olbermann announced Wednesday that the "Worst Person In The World" segment will be returning to "Countdown" after he suspended it from the program three weeks ago.

Olbermann made the announcement on Twitter, in reply to a viewer who asked where the segment had gone:

Olbermann had suspended the segment on his Nov. 1 broadcast. Then, he said that Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity had caused him to rethink the "Worst Persons" segment. However, he did say that he was suspending the segment "with an eye towards discontinuing it." Clearly, he changed his mind about the possible permanence of the suspension.
