The Opinionators: Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann

Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann are engaged in one of the most visible rivalries of the decade — a conflict that may be rooted more in their similarities than differences. Both talk show hosts are former straight news reporters who share not only a formula for talk-show success, but a mutual respect for Tom Snyder, whose 1970s talk show Tomorrow set the bar for thoughtful, entertaining talk. Olbermann and O'Reilly make our Players list for best epitomizing the transformation of news in the 2000s. While CNN ruled the '90s with an emphasis on breaking, opinion-free reports, The O'Reilly Factor helped Fox News become the cable news leader with a show that mixes reporting, reflection, and rampant editorializing. It's the same formula adopted by Olbermann's Countdown, which has led MSNBC's increased emphasis on opinion. Critics paint O'Reilly and Olbermann as blustery, cartoonish bloviators of the right and left, respectively, and take them to task for not playing it straight. But both men — among the influential television industry players interviewed for TVGuide.com's Best of the Decade section — would just say they speak the truth.

Jon & Kate Plus 8 Limps to Its End

Jon Gosselin, Kate Gosselin

Jon & Kate Plus 8's series finale limped to its conclusion, a shell of its former self, ending with a whimper of a family's life that used to be.

The first eight minutes of the show entailed the talking heads of the unhappy, soon to be divorced, couple. "These are the last moments of the Gosselins," a stark white-on-black old-movie placard said as the show got under way.

"It's sad, it's needless, it's useless, it was totally avoidable," Kate said when asked about how she felt about the series coming to an end... read more
