Fox Business Network blew out their regular programming of infomercials and aired live business programming from 10am-Noon. The Stuart Varney-hosted program included viewer phone calls. But insiders tell us when the phone calls didn’t stop, FBN kept going. Jenna Lee and Dagen McDowell co-anchored from 12p-2pET. The network then re-aired Neil Cavuto’s special that aired on FNC from 10-Noon this morning. And tonight, Alexis Glick and Brian Sullivan will anchor a live special at 7pmET. For FBN, three weeks shy of its first birthday, this shows a commitment to “Main Street” viewers worried about what’s next, while not worrying (too much anyway) about losing revenue from the infomercials.
For its part, CNBC stayed with weekend infomercials, airing cut-ins on the progress of the bailout bill. CNBC will air a one-hour special tomorrow night after the Asian markets open.
