  •  No Lights was a Keith Protest (1+ / 0-)

    Keith was use to professionally run studios and his new Current home was not up to his standards. There were problems with the feeds when he was interviewing guests remotely and some lightening issues that actually caused the lights to go out during one broadcast. He decided to take his protests public and shoot his show in the dark with a single spotlight because - well - because he is an ass. I loved his show and miss him, but whatever technical issues his studio had, he made them much worse with his childish behavior. He could have just joked about it and his audience would have understood. Instead he publicly humiliated his employer and forced their hand.

      He COVERED for them. He kept covering for them in a lot of ways.

      After he left Current, I asked him if he had kept the background set turned off because he was worried the lights would go out. He said "Yes".

      I went back and watched the episode from the Friday before the lights went out, and you could see brownouts during the show. Day before as well.

      They weren't as noticeable to the viewers - you had to be looking for them. Once I looked, I could see them easily.

      I recorded every episode of Countdown on Current, and I still have every one of them.

      So don't tell me it's about his "attitude". He covered for them in SO many ways.
