Olbermann's Swipe At MSNBC's Ratings

Keith Olbermann took to Twitter on Tuesday to gleefully point out that MSNBC's ratings in his old timeslot are down.

The ratings for the second quarter of 2011 were released on Tuesday, and Olbermann did not let the fact that MSNBC's ratings had slipped a bit at 8 PM go unnoticed. Lawrence O'Donnell is now the host of the 8 PM show on Olbermann's former network.

"Presented without comment: http://j.mp/jNN45L A certain cable news operation down 12% at 8 pm from 2nd Quarter 2010," Olbermann wrote.

MSNBC's overall ratings were up from its 2010 ratings.
