Fox Business has best day ever due to NYSE blackout
Eight-year-old Fox Business Network posted its best ratings ever on Wednesday due to the New York Stock Exchange going down for four hours.
Brian Flood of TVNewser writes, “FBN delivered its highest-rated business day ever among the key A25-54 demo, averaging 36,000 viewers.
“The network’s biggest winner was Cavuto: Coast to Coast, which was FBN’s highest rated 12 p.m. -2 p.m. telecast ever in total viewers, averaging 145,000. The 1 p.m. hour of Cavuto peaked at 171,000 total viewers.
“We’d mention CNBC’s numbers, since the network likely saw increased viewership as well, but the network ditched Nielsen for business day programming back in January. Bloomberg also refrains from being publicly rated.”
