3. No and I used to watch him every night

He was my favorite too and I had to watch his show more than any other. But he bailed for no good reason, as he has at about every job he has had. We didn't need him to quit when he did; he needed to stay and fight. I'm not going to place trust in him again.

16. I was going to add Jon. Almost brings a tear to my eye.

My strongest memory of Jon is him telling Fox to "go fuck yourself". Here at 3 minutes 7 seconds. Worth a watch.

And my all time favorite 2 minutes of TV and comedy ever

His ups have been welcomed and his downs disappointing, but
I miss his wit and wisdom.

Guess he was cranky behind the scenes, but they should have overlooked it and kept him on.

22. For sure. But, he called it a year ago. On his last GQ spot,

He said basicly, that NOW we know that Trump will be impeached/removed/indicted, and while it might be fun to keep doing this between now and then, it's also useless...cause NOW we know what's gonna happen.

The man called it a year ago.

26. KO got Rachel Maddow on MSNBC

At first, she was doing stories for his show. She got moved to her own show (I think KO had something to do with that), and the rest is history.

29. I remember the first time she subbed for Keith

I was already familiar with her from her Air America radio show. She started off very nervous and those of us on DU were watching in real time and rooting her on. By the end of the show, she had found her voice and the rest really is history. She's the one making headlines now, but she started with the support of KO. He was always must-see-TV.

He is a sanctimonious loud mouth who can't work a job for more than a few weeks before he gets in trouble with everyone he had ever worked for. I love Rachel &; Lawrence the best.

33. Maybe ask Maddow to help ....

On TV, at least, Rachel Maddow seemed very compatible with Keith. As the prime attraction on MSNBC, she can persuade the network producers to bring him back to the stable.
Please, please, please.

35. Patiently taking his time to listen to his guests until they were done.

After all, he had a whole hour. As opposed to Matthews and, on occasions, others, who ask a question and immediately interrupt them.

demanding too much.

I would like those who enjoy him to have the opportunity to watch though.
