Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs continues to overpower CNBS and has scored his 100th consecutive weekly win over CNBC.
FBN may be the “small” financial network, but it continues to rack up the ratings wins against the far older, and more established CNBC.
The network reports that Lou Dobbs Tonight marked its 100th consecutive weekly win over CNBC in the 7PM/ET timeslot, according to Nielsen Media Research.
In addition to dominating the 7PM hour of business television, Dobbs’ program scored its 57th straight week as the number one business show on television in total viewers.
Dobbs earned 401,000 total viewers, and delivered a 142 percent advantage over CNBC’s 166,000 total viewers in the timeslot for the week.
Dobbs is not the only host pulling in top marks.
For the fourth week in a row, FBN’s market-open program Varney & Co (9AM-12PM/ET) was the second highest rated business show on television, and the number one market-hours show for the week with 282,000 total viewers.
Additionally, FBN’s post-market programs including The Evening Edit with Elizabeth MacDonald and Trish Regan Primetime ranked among the top 10 programs on business television.
FBN may only be 13 years old, but time and again it is soundly beating the 30-year-old CNBC.
