Host Tucker Carlson had asked his guests what they thought "of the meltdown occurring in public of Bill O'Reilly," saying that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, host of Countdown, "has set out to drive Bill O'Reilly crazy, and apparently he's succeeded."

Tucker's other guest, retired Col. Jack Jacobs, concluded of O'Reilly's flagging ratings that "there's a finite life to everything."
