NEW YORK (AP) -- Keith Olbermann was gone, a new host had replaced him and history seemed to have repeated itself with his dismissal from Current TV after less than a year.The left-leaning cable network announced just hours before airtime on Friday that "Countdown," the show Olbermann had anchored on Current since June, would be replaced with a new program hosted by former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, beginning that night. "Welcome to Current's new 8 p.m. (Eastern time) show, `Viewpoint,'" said Spitzer, who had a short-lived talk show in that same time slot on CNN, where he briefly went up against Olbermann. He didn't mention Olbermann on Friday's premiere of "Viewpoint."
