“Lou Dobbs Tonight” top biz news show for one year
Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” marked one straight year as the most-watched program in business news this week, reports Joe Concha of The Hill.
Concha writes, “The show, hosted by staunch President Trump supporter Lou Dobbs, averaged 285,000 total viewers, making it the highest-rated program over other business networks including rival CNBC.
“Trump thanked Dobbs via Twitter last month for supporting his agenda and giving him an ‘A+’ grade on the performance of his first six months in office.
“‘Thank you to [Lou Dobbs] for giving the first six months of the Trump Administration an A+. S.C.,reg cutting, Stock M, jobs, border etc. = TRUE!’ the president tweeted on July 23.
“Overall, Fox Business has topped CNBC for nine consecutive months.
“CNBC announced in 2015 that it would no longer rely on Nielsen ratings to measure its daytime audience, turning to rival Cogent Reports instead.”
