    Ratings, I'm sure.

    They'll give some personal reason (health, wants to do something new, moving to Singapore), but his ratings were horrible.

    If they were making money off of him, he wouldn't be leaving.

    Maybe he's being replaced by one of the kiddie shows that Comcast got coerced into producing.

    Speaking of CCCPNBC, looks like that Madcow guy has a new pair of glasses and is wearing a tie tonight.
