Could Keith Olbermann Be Heading to Showtime?

Before his shocking exit from Current TV on Friday, Keith Olbermann met with David Nevins, the president of entertainment for Showtime. In a cover story in The Hollywood Reporter Lacey Rose reveals:

Nevins even met recently with cable-news bad boy Keith Olbermann for a meal. Although he’s tight-lipped about the details, he says, “It didn’t really go anywhere.” Asked whether he had envisioned a sports or politics show for the disgruntled Current TV host, Nevins suggests he “didn’t get that far.”

After he left MSNBC, there was speculation that Olbermann could be heading to pay cable. Maybe HBO would add a sister show to “Real Time,” or perhaps Showtime wanted its own take on politics. The news of the meeting is sure to reignite that rumor.
