Goodbye Larry Kudlow Report

Tyler Durden's picture


In a surreal and deja vu-ish turn of events, three days ago we reported that in parallel with the ongoing collapse in CNBC viewership, the ratings of some of its shows namely Jim Cramer's Mad Money and Larry Kudlow's Report had just hit all time lows.

This was met with an immediate response by Larry Kudlow himself who, alongside Groundhog Phil-fodder Joe LaVorgna, decided to take Zero Hedge to task for reporting that part-time jobs are not really full-time jobs and invited us over to their show to explain how dare we point out the weakness in the manipulated BLS datadump. We were kind enough to remind Mr. Kudlow that the last time someone from CNBC "invited" us over, i.e., Dennis "Digital Dickweed" Kneale, their show was promptly cancelled. To wit: "While we appreciate the offer, the last thing we intend to do is suffer Mr. Kudlow the same fate as that experienced by his predecessor Dennis Kneale who also invited Zero Hedge on his laughable excuse for a show in 2009, only to be sacked a few months later." Make it two for two as irony strikes again.

The NY Post reports that Kudlow's show is over.

CNBC is close to bagging former CBS News anchor Harry Smith for a new talk show, which is almost certain to replace “The Kudlow Report” at 7 p.m., The Post has learned.


Smith is already signed to NBCUniversal.


“If we could figure out a way to utilize his skills to serve our very affluent and highly educated audience I’m sure we’d be interested,” said a CNBC spokesman.


“The Kudlow Report” is off roughly 60 percent in its key 25- to 54-year-old target audience.

Next up: we expect an "invite" from Jim Cramer.

Larry is a hypocrite statist piece of garbage,




The galling part was his continual attempt to brand himself as some sort of steward of free market capitalism.

It is a conundrum.  The Matthews hour is frustrating and very often difficult to watch, but I do it from time to time anyway.  Why would I?  For the same reason I catch Kudlow's show.  It is informative to see which way their respective winds are blowing.  Chris talks about guns and knows nothing about them.  At least that limey weirdo Piers Morgan went out and shot some really cool firearms.  He didn't change his stance on gun ownership but he seemed to have tempered his "gun nut" talk.  I think Morgan found out how much fun it can be, and he saw that it's an actual sport.

Now, back to Kudlow.  He is a one-trick pony:  Everything is supply side economics to him and that makes him a dinosaur.  I was watching a couple of days ago when, at about half-time, Kudlow went into commercial -- and didn't come back.  They had a guest host sitting in.  Larry has not been back since.  That sounds more like a health problem than anything else.  I've Googled in several ways to try to find out any gossip about why he disappeared but came up dry.  Kinda weird.  I'd expect some news soon. 

Yes, I do watch some of the more hated personalities and programs simply as contrary indicators or to see which way the political/economic/talking-head sentiments are leaning.   It's as much necessary as following the dreaded Fed pronouncements.  It's just financially healthy to do so.  Just because one watches Hannity doesn't mean that one subscribes to his insanity.  Same for Limbaugh.  He boils me faster and better than most of them, but since so many half-wits follow him, it's a good idea to keep up with the rabble.  Most of those will be after my stash when TSHTF.  I need to know how much lead to put aside.

EDIT: Just found Larry's last tweet. On the 9th he says feeling fine, back on air tomorrow.  Oops.  He wasn't back on air.  I don't tweet but found this site:

Since the day that Hannity and OReally dissed Ron Paul, I will never grace their ratings with one minute of my TV time - which these days is ONLY MOVIES - and I used to be a fairly regular attendant.  I do rarely watch the leftist news shows just to see what their temperment is and where their galactic attitudes are traveling--Maybe once a month.  Back in 2005/6 everyone murmered the words "conspricy theories/theorist-bla bla blah"  Well, it ain't no theory anymore Gladys.

Kudlow is not evil but he is not much help in analyzing the market or government policy effects. I heard that he is a former alcoholic, i hope he has not fallen off the wagon. This administration is driving many to drink.

Being a Friend of Bill's myself, I can tell you that it's not uncommon for the seemingly recovered to do just that -- at the most inopportune moment!  His history tells us that coke was his drug of choice, but the essential elements are all the same.  What drug one chooses is but a symptom anyhow.   Kudlow's access to information is probably astounding, so he could have come onto some devastating statistic(s) which fouled his Program.  This could be the equivalent of the brokers jumping out of windows during the Depression.

Yeah, Kudlow was kind of a flagship guy for CNBC, hopefully it was just a contract dispute or simply a move by the network to replace him with somebody they felt could get better ratings.  They seem to be rapidly moving towards more T&A oriented programming than anything with substance (even if the substance is wrong, it's still useful as you mentioned earlier).  If it really is a drug thing, I hope for his and his family's sake that he gets help.  I have noticed that insiders are starting to bug out to flyover country.

That "third rate" network used to have pretty good viewership and was regarded as THE channel for financial and investment types to watch.  They used to advertise they were #1 in high net worth viewers.  I used to have it on all the time in my office many moons ago, too.

ZH and the Tylers have the right to take a victory lap on this one. 

That channel blows because it isn't doing any journalism.  It isn't asking real questions.  It's just a mouthpiece for the banks, sell-side financial companies, government officials, etc.  They start every sentence "with the economy in recovery....."  It's horsehit right from their starting premise.  Recovery?  For whom?  Did they ever ask "who says this is a recovery?"  Nope.  Just another media echo-chamber channel.

Lewshine, this may come as a shock but not everyone who disagrees with the ZH agenda is a traitor or psychopath.   Kudlow is mainly an entertainer who had an aging audience  (much like the Tylers) and while one can irrationaly hate such folks, I'd rather reserve my disdain for self-proclaimed statists and central planners.  Face it, 95% of Americans never heard of Kudlow who is "old school" - still living as if folks who disagreed could actually converse in a civil manner  He doens't have to worry about that around here.

I agree. The times I've watched Kudlow, he's always treated his guests with respect and given time to opposing views. And as a Jewish convert to Catholicism and recovered addict, Kudlow shows a capacity for self-criticism and a desire for redemption that is missing in most all of his DC and NYC associates. Kudlow isn't the problem, and his show will probably be replaced by something worse from a ZH perspective.

I watch Kudlow and I don't mind him. In my opinion, his show is very enjoyable. I mainly look for which direction his guests are headed, and go contrarian. I agree he is an entertainer. He shouldn't even be mentioned together with Kneale. Kudlow is lightyears beyond Dennis the Pennis for likeability, respect, knowledge, track record. I think he's a good guy. Sorry...let the jabs begin.

The reason I hate this cunt is the way he behaved during the financial crisis. Many uneducated people were turning to CNBC for answers during scary times and he would outright lie to them. My favorite Kudlow quote was " hey, 88% of us are still employed. It's not that bad. Spend money, buy a car. This whole thing is overblown." I hope the Koch brothers think tank that hires him enjoys his bullshit.

TV is a very poor substitute for Reality. It immediately robs you of Three of your Five Senses.


Furthermore it is not called Television Programming by accident.


Go watch some TV instead of Trolling about here in Reality. Enjoy your induced hypnosis to your own psychopathic self indulgement and narcissism.  Do not even bother to awaken as it is a waste of time since you consider us part of the lunatic fringe.

Now get rid of Maria.  Kernan can be trained to shut up and keep his opinions to himself.  Santelli is the only dude who cares about reality because he comes from a place where reality means profit.  Do they even have that little kid they hired to give Communist opinions in the morning with Kernan?  If he is still there, he has to go.  You could replace 90% of their content with a realtime data ticker showing more than 100 stocks at a time and their ratings would go up.

Well....those who refused to invest in the market (because, you know, it's fixed and fake and doesn't deserve to go higher) instead sold at the lows and at $1800/oz and now that's tanked.  I can understand being upset because of pisspoor investment decisions but to blame others is a little too much.   I guarantee that as close as the Tylers follow Goldman, JPM, foreign exchanges and the technicals he's not investing like his followers.

Care to back up your assertions on that one.  Virtually you've entered the discussion as an apologist, defending disenguous "news" anchors with little more than the words of a co-dependent mother protecting her ill behaved child.  There is nothing you can guarantee but that your trolling is meant to justify a position that you may not really have but are paid to extol nonetheless.  Obviously you think as per your statement that the market 'deserves' to be higher.  What this is based upon considering the weight of evidence against such an assumption seems vague and disenguous and once again can only be supported as the result of you being a trolling plant seeking some sort of redemption for the lies, hypocrisy and outright delusional unreality purported and planted by the various shills and mouthpieces of the MSM.  But please carry on with your drivel as it pleases us readers so.  And no my demographic is well below the average age on this forum and I'm a well educated, non-conforming athiest who chooses as a grown up to deal with reality no matter how painful or difficult that might be.  You on the other hand choose to defend the narcissist and the sociopath whild avoiding dealing with the larger picture of how the public has been brainwashed to accept at face value the manipulation and lies fed to them by a media owned by the few who wish to control what you see.  Perception is not reality but obviously you swallowed the wrong dose of such medicine long ago.

What day was it....has he been back on the air since then (I know he was on last night...had someone who was 10x worse on...i literally almost broke the damn TV because I couldn't find the remote and i was so pissed off i was jabbing and slamming trying to turn the channel)......

It's typical mob mentality - piling on for the sake of piling on.  Folks who've never watched or heard or know anything about Larry Kudlow are foaming at the mouth in phony rage like 8-year old kids.  On ZH, anyone failing the ideological purity test (everyone except the posters themselves) immediately becomes the "evil enemy".   The idea of a smart retort, simple agreement or irony is unknown around these parts.   Said it before, ZHers may well survive the comoing financial apocalypse but who in their right mind would want to live in a society where disagreement is tantamount to treason?

All I see is a lot of Negative Feedback.


Your TV Set is calling you. It is saying, "Watch me...Watch me...I will tell you everything that you need to know. Don't turn me off. You need me. Be a Satist Minion. You can have that new Lexus if you really want it. Go into debt. Gold is bad. Stay away from money. Buy Stocks."


You just don't get it. We are done with the State.


Collapse, baby, collapse.


The very best action that all members of Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court can do is to SUBMIT THEIR LETTERS OF RESIGNATION. Why not resign yourself?


Why submit yourself to this punishment if you dislike us so much? We are not forcing you to stay. We are not forcing you to go. Although we are encouraging that.

Besides, if jesus is coming "soon" and the world ends (as the Bible promises) why should you give a rat's ass about the Supreme Court, Larry Kudlow or trolls?  Take care.

I disagree, i see plenty of frank and insightful discussions take place, often times, yes, people devolve into blind other hate, but i wouldn't go so far as to state it as the rule.

If you understand the nature of what we're going through, how merely the proclamations of Bernanke literally cause massive ripples and price distortions, not just on a contrarian level, or even of simple blind faith one, but to the point where both are happening simultaneously as well as whole other currents aground the data stream signaled by information you don't have access to and wouldn't believe.

Nothing, anywhere, can be taken at face value, because the very nature of truth has been undermined.

Getzeegold above made a statement about the atmosphere being cultish, and i agree, at times what appears to be a strict adherence to uniformity of opinion presents itself.

But what really is the alternative? And no, i'm not asking for a lecture on free and reasoned debate.

Funny, the alternative financial media doesn't seem to be suffering from these low ratings.  Zerohedge isn't exactly in freefall for readship, and plenty of people are still tuning in to see Lauren Lyster's legs on RT.  Gerald Celente and Max Kaiser still get plenty of air time, as do Marc Faber and Jim Rogers. 

It's the dinasaur media that seems to be in trouble.  They've brainwashed the sheeple public for years into not caring about real events and to believe everything they are told, so these pricks shouldn't be surprised when no one watches their crap propaganda anymore, because after all, everything is going great according to them...
