Keith Olbermann has become an enigma in a matter of a few days. On Friday, he abruptly announced that it would be his last show for MSNBC. Then, he started Tweeting various cryptic updates, keeping his fans and the press waiting on the edge of their keyboards. His directions, as they were, pointed to a possible surprise appearance on 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' (Weeknights, 12:37AM on CBS), but that didn't happen.
Craig Ferguson did talk about Olbermann's departure in his monologue, but he didn't have any insider insight. "First there was Larry King, and then Regis has announced he's going, and now Olbermann," Ferguson said. "Horrible things always happen in threes. It's like the Jonas Brothers."
