    At what point are they going to abort this thing? The Nielsen numbers are so low that they aren't statistically different that zero. To the extent the network is drawing any viewers, it's by putting on non-business programming (Imus).

    Fox will take anyone...Imus, mark freaking furhman, ....dick morris...toe sucker...

    they have rove on all the time as well....pretty much anyone who can disgrace themselves are welcome on fox.

    You just know Dobbs will be there and I have a feeling Prejean will be there as well, followed by Palin.

    Yet they have great ratings. Along with American idol and other crap.

    Luckily, approx. 99% of americans dont watch fox. Thank god.

    300 million people in america and 3-5 million of them watch. In the big picture, it means nothing.

    Hate to break this to ya zona, the topic is FOX BUSINESS NEWS. It is a new channel that was launched a few months ago.

    Wow ... such little knowledge is present in Fox-haters ... seriously? Simpsons is till number one, Family Guy quickly rising (Seth may get his own talk show at this rate) ... House, Fringe ... the list goes on, those are all, get this, owned and produced by FOX! Yes, the network (which means lots of stations, duh) produces some of the best "liberal" shows on TV ... and you think they are "down in viewers"? Holy shit? So number one show means the fewest people watching now?

    The ratings.

    Takes at least 35,000 estimated viewers to be measurable (since the amount that would appear in the sample can reasonably be used as as estimate of the general population).

    As for Imus,

    The real problem for Fox Business is a matter of identity. The reason for creating the network was to "counter the anti-business bias" of CNBC (you'd need to be drunk to think CNBC has an anti-business bias, but that's another issue entirely), but that really only works when the market is going up and a Republican is in the White House. Otherwise, Fox Business is the servant of two masters. It's toward between being "pro-business" and in favor of the editorial line of it's parent company.
