CNBC’s Best Biz Day In 6+ Years

CNBC topped MSNBC and Headline News on Tuesday in Total Viewers, as investors watched the stock market tumble. CNBC had a total day (3a-3a) average of 401K viewers to HLN’s 350K and MSNBC’s 334K (Live +SD). The two news networks did beat CNBC in A25-54 viewers, however.
