President Donald Trump’s former National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow has continued his reign with the number one business show on TV.
Fox Business Network (FBN) delivered its seventh consecutive month as the leader in business news.
Fox beat CNBC with a 29% advantage in business day viewers.
October was FBN’s third highest-rated month ever in Business Day with total viewers.
The news wasn’t so great for CNBC, however, as the network saw its worst-performing month since November 2013 in total viewers in the crucial 25-54 age demographic.
Larry Kudlow’s show “Kudlow” recorded its 13th consecutive monthly win over CNBC’S “Closing Bell,” continuing its streak as the number one business show in television.
“Kudlow” averaged 347,000 total viewers per episode and delivered an 89% advantage win over CNBC in total viewers.
