FBN Beats CNBC in Business Prime Time for First Time in ’15

By Brian Flood 

FBN beat CNBC in business prime time among the key A24-54 for the first time this year on Friday. The eight-year-old network topped rival CNBC in four consecutive shows, starting when the markets closed at 4 p.m. ET until 8 p.m. ET. After the Bell, Risk & Reward, Making Money and Lou Dobbs Tonight all won their respective time slots in the demo.

Dobbs also beat CNBC’s 7 p.m. ET programming in total viewers all last week. CNBC won the other three hours in total viewers and continues to dominate in business day (9am-4pm).

FBN’s ratings continue to climb since the lineup change earlier this summer.
