Current TV's CEO, Mark Rosenthal, says he isn't too worried about the ratings drop-off in the second week of Keith Olbermann's new show. As Deadline reported, and Adweek has confirmed, Countdown saw an average viewership of 93,000 in the key 25-54 demo during the week of June 27th—a decline of 29 percent in that age group from the week before. Olbermann's show saw a total audience drop of 28.5 percent in that period. 

"Numbers are going to go up and they're going to go down," Rosenthal said of the decline.
