(Newser) – Well, that didn't take long: Not even three weeks after suspending his Worst Person in the World segment in the wake of Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity, Keith Olbermann brought it back. Olbermann announced the segment's return Tuesday, noting that 73% of polled viewers wanted it restored, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and it was back last night. He tried to tone it down a notch by calling it the "(Not Really) Worst Person in the World" and using tamer music, but that didn't last long.

Last night's honorees: Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller, who thinks Fox News and MSNBC should both go away; Fox News chief Roger Ailes, thanks in part to Fox's recent criticism of President Obama's children's book; and "buffoon" Pam Geller, the anti-mosque crusader.
