Ratings Notes: FBN Tops Day One Of RNC

The cable business channels had some RNC coverage as well last night. CNBC went with limited coverage, only going live from 10-11PM with Larry Kudlow and John Harwood anchoring. Fox Business was a bit more intensive, going live from 8-11:15 with Neil Cavuto anchoring. Bloomberg TV also had live coverage from 9-11, but is not rated by Nielsen.

Bear in mind that both of these networks were competing against their politics-centric corporate siblings, so the ratings expectations were not set too high.

From 10-11PM–the only hour FBN and CNBC were head to head–FBN averaged 388,000 viewers, including 161,000 adults 25-54. CNBC averaged 163,000 viewers, including 76,000 A25-54.

From 8-9, FBN averaged  246,000 total viewers, and 93,000 A25-54. From 9-10, it drew 307,000 total viewers and 111,000 A25-54.
