Excluding 'displaced viewers' who can no longer afford a cable package, and those 'no-longer investing in the market aka gun & bible nuts' - viewship was actually up 13%.

I'm sure they'll go apeshit hedonic on Nielsen.

If you pay Nielsen more money they will do "enhanced" studies to make your numbers look better.

So you see it's everywhere in every industry.

And throwing money at it won't increase your ad revenue. Cable Ad revenue will continue to drop.

CNBC BEATS ESTIMATES! S&P futures soar! Special report to air tonight. "Dennis and Suze: Just two gay chicks hanging out and talkin' finance."

What's the difference between Dennis Kneale and Suze Orman? One is a gay chick and the other one is Suze Orman.

Tyler your methodology is all wrong.

Just like with the unemployment report, you IGNORE the number of viewers who DROPPED OFF.

Correct. TD, you should have adjusted for birth-death ratios as the number of people who have died laughing at CNBC over the past year.

CNBC still hasn't figured out, that after 3 bubbles in 10 years, people want the truth, reality, realism, not sugar coated BS hosted by loud mouthed cheerleaders.

From this we can gather

1. "Fast Money" running out of gas, which might explain why they brought in Rick Santelli to prop it up

2. People clearly find DK more annoying than Suze Orman

And yes, I'd like to see more of Amanda Drury

Fast Money has Santelli on it now?  That might actually be interesting.

I haven't watched that station in months.  No informational content at all - useless.

Santelli filled in for a couple of days while Melissa Lee is on vacation, as I understand it.

Fast Money has become awful, their ratings should continue to fall.  I used to like it when Ratigan and Macke was on there.  Now I can't bear to watch it.  Ratigan, ego aside, asked good questions, and Macke told it like it was most of the time.  Now all we have is a clueless M. Lee and Joe "buy every stock in the world" Terranova, the new shining star of the show.  If anyone says something that doesn't fit the pump game, Lee calls them out for being a Debbie Downer.

What used to be a decent show, has now become as big of joke as the rest of the station.  I quit watching them after Macke left, just couldn't stand it anymore.  I did tune in to see Santelli.  He was ok, but let the traders do most of the talking.  I don't think that is his element.  He should stay in the pits and go on the occasional rant when they allow him to.

Kudlow down over 40 percent is good, but not good enough.  Turn his blowhard ass off.  What a tool.

As I type this CNBC is touting the best DOW gain (per month) since 1939.  Humm....

CNBC = not serious.

Who was the journalist who called out zero intelligence for being anonymous cowards?

The funny thing is that who really remembers the names of cheerleading financial

blowhards?  They might as well be anonymous.  I think it should be a requirement to

give pom-poms to every male CNBC 'analyst'.

some pom poms or a lobotomy. Either one or both. Who cares. They are irrelevant.

If nobody's watching CNBC then why is the market skyrocketing?  When the viewers return from vacation things should really take off!

Come on give TD a break.  He went from zero readership in January to being mentioned and targeted on CNBC by Charlie Gasparino.  Let him have his fun!  He deserves it, his hard work continues to pay off, so he's allowed to get his shot in.
