Jon Stewart’s Rally for Sanity appears to have had at least one positive effect. Keith Olbermann has suspended his “Worst Person in the World” segment, though he refused to give Stewart credit for the move. “It’s satire and whimsy have gradually gotten lost in some anger, so in the spirit of the thing, as of right now, I am unilaterally suspending that segment with an eye toward discontinuing it,” Olbermann announced the move on Monday night’s program.
A CBS executive warns that as many as 20% of viewers might have difficulty watching 3D on television.
