Davos booking wars spill over to FBN’s air…

  1. Old news. This has been blogged about before. CNBC does this to FOX. What I want to know does this happen in reverse? Does FOX make this “request” of their guests?

    And no guessing here. I want facts, not just FOX is bad and this must happen.

  2. I believe the point of this thread is that the discussion happened on air, not that “this has been blogged about before.” You can tell by the title The Hazards of Live TV: #25,231.

  3. I guess this matters to them, but the value of an “exclusive” from Davos escapes me.

    Look at the ratings FBN. Your ratings are beyond the basement. Nobody watches. Should CNBC even think of them as competitiion. Yea they should to a degree, but fbn is just fnc lite. Heavy on the political opinionated crap and a little about business. Until FBN becomes unique and doesn’t serve up so much opinion and political crap it will not be a player in the business channel game.

  6. FBN’s most well-known “business” program is Cashin’ In, which is another platform for Eric Bolling and a panel to b/tch about liberals. So Eric gets 6 days to be a business guy who doesn’t do business programming. Nice work if you can get it.

  7. Wait.. she’s complaining about the network that made her? Nice.

  8. Harry: we won’t know how the ratings on CNBC compare to FOX Business because CNBC has dropped Neilsen ratings.

  9. ^ Propaganda. CNBC dropped Neilsen for a service that covers all the platforms CNBC plays on. Which makes sense since the younger generation is watching TV without TV’s now.

  10. Neilsens vs. what CNBC will do. Comparing apples and oranges.

  11. FBN will have to do it eventually, too, unless Neilsen gets off its arse and accepts reality. FBN will hold off as long as possible because its presence is mostly on residential TV, whereas CNBC has a wider reach through offices and airports. This TV piece of the pie will continue to shrink as more and more media consumers abandon cable for the internet, which means FBN will fall even further behind if they don’t start counting multiple platforms.

  12. The real measure of how a channel is performing, seems to me, is in how much it collects in advertising revenues. How many people are watching on other platforms should not matter to those advertisers who pay for commercials airing on cable. i doubt,, for example, that there’s much of an audience for “reverse mortgage” companies on non-television platforms/ So selling them an across-platform package based upon a combined ratings number might not make sense.

  13. The platforms include office and airport TVs, which run the same ads, plus Internet traffic which sees different ads. Nobody is watching CNBC without advertising.

  14. Of course, but the value of those watching on the various platforms would necessarily be different. For a business channel it’s conceivable that airport viewers might even be worth more than those watching on cable at home.
