Way to go, Kernan, Santelli! CNBC viewership drops to a fresh, 20-year low!

When you have clowns like Joe Kernan, Ranting Rick Santelli and Larry Kudlow as three of your top anchors, what do you expect? Even the uneducated public is smarter than these three when it comes to financial matters.

CNBC execs should wake up and smell the coffee. When it comes to economics and Wall Street, this show's content is comically out-of-paradigm and irrelevant. That's why nobody watches.

Are you listening, Mark Hoffman, Nik Deogun, Nick Dunn?

Read about their ratings plunge here.

They ought to at least try a different approach at this point...

I think MSNBC is way down too Mike...

That channel is like one continuous "let's make fun of the GOP crazies show" from like 7 to 11 pm... that schtick gets old after a while too...

No fresh perspective out there AT ALL...

I know. MSNBC is just mindless anti-conservative blather. It's not intelligent either. Furthermore, they're waaay wrong on economics, too, as we know. They're of the, tax the rich so we can "have money" to pay for the investments we need, mentality. They love how Clinton balanced the budget, etc. All wrong...all wrong.

Let's see if I get another stupid email from Kernan. LOL!!!!

Hey, Kernan, post here, jerk. We'll all love to hear your thoughts.

"ratings leader Fox News"
that's hardly good news;

deeper switch may be the general decline in tv viewership overall

the article didn't mention who was getting the most increase in viewings for financial news and advice

newer, smaller Registered Investment Advisors are returning to vogue (RIAs, e.g., MoneyMatters)

for Jand & Joe Sixpack, not too much expanding interest in "MacroMatters"

You might want to start appealing to those who now have nothing more to lose.
