Keith Olbermann will be on NBC at 7 eastern just ahead of the Sunday night NFL game.

UPDATE Many stations around the country are going to run the show a little later this evening so you may still have a chance to catch it. Thanks to all who made our conversation a lively one!

This is a chance for those of us who don't have cable to watch countdown over the old airwaves. I have some tidbits from a blog over at the Orlando Sentinel

so follow me over the jump for some scoop

It looks like it will be a typical countdown with nothing out of the usual planed.

Keith Olbermann says he plans to do a typical edition of his "Countdown" in a special airing on NBC this Sunday. And he will know Sunday morning what he will put in that "Countdown," which will air at 7 p.m. on WESH-Channel 2.

"It depends entirely on the news," Olbermann says. "There's not any effort to either force stuff to happen ... or pull any punches."

It seems Keith has a very humble attitude toward the popularity of his now famous commentaries

And what about those "Countdown" commentaries?

"I am amazed at the state of American society that, whatever this role is exactly that I have now, that it somehow has fallen to me," he says.

The day he wrote his first commentary, he thought there had to be a hundred people better suited to the job."It is not a role that I sought. It is not a role I will tailor the news to continue." And he suggests he would give it up if better commentators came along. "I'm here now, and there are parts of that are very rewarding."

If you want to give Keith some love you can contact his bosses at:

or e-mail:

I hope you will have a chance to watch tonight. I just wanted to get yet another reminder out there that he will be on. Maybe we will get a special commentary. If you have some tidbits of info that I can add to the body of this let me know and I'll update it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
