Market Woes Lead to Fox Business’ Best Month of ’15

By Brian Flood 

Bad news on Wall Street continues to be good news for the business networks.

Fox Business Network had its highest-rated month of 2015 in both total viewers and the demo during August. The big month coincides with market craziness and comes just two months after a lineup change that included Maria Bartiromo‘s show moving from 6-9 a.m. ET, Neil Cavuto moving from prime time to noon and Trish Regan hosting a show at 2 p.m. ET.

The moves seem to be paying off, Varney & Company scored the network’s highest rated month ever in total viewers from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Cavuto: Coast to Coast was FBN’s highest rated 12-2 p.m. ET ever among the A25-54 demo. Lou Dobbs Tonight scored its highest rated month since May 2013 in total viewers and Risk & Reward was FBN’s most watched 5-6 p.m. show since November 2012.
