‘The Kudlow Report’ Signs Off

LarryKudlow2014Larry Kudlow closed his final episode of “The Kudlow Report” tonight surrounded by family, friends, CNBC staffers, and a Cake Boss cake. “I am a grateful camper,” Kudlow said. “The Lord has blessed me with a beautiful bride, a great life, a second chance, a new career, some wonderful friends, and some of the best debates on TV that there ever was.”

Kudlow, who has been with the network for all of its 25 years, will remain a contributor to CNBC. In fact, he’s already booked on four business day shows next week.

From 2005-2008, he hosted “Kudlow & Company,” and earlier in the decade he was part of “Kudlow & Cramer,” alongside Jim Cramer, who was a guest on Kudlow’s show last night: “We couldn’t say good-bye to this show without bringing on my great friend and former co-host, Jim Cramer.”

‘The Kudlow Report’ Cancelled, Larry Kudlow Becomes CNBC Senior Contributor

Environmental Portrait of Larry Kudlow, CEO, Kudlow & CompanyLarry Kudlow, who has been a part of CNBC for its 25-year history, is scaling back at the network. His 7pmET show “The Kudlow Report” will end its run at the end of the month, TVNewser has learned. Kudlow will stay on as a senior contributor to CNBC’s Business Day programs.

“The Kudlow Report” has been on CNBC since January, 2009. From 2005-2008, he hosted “Kudlow & Company,” and earlier in the decade he was part of “Kudlow & Cramer,” alongside Jim Cramer.

“In my career, I have encountered few television hosts with Larry’s range,” writes CNBC president Mark Hoffman in a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser. “As an interviewer, he is unfailingly polite and energetic, skillfully grilling guests but always ending a segment graciously. Larry has always brought great enthusiasm to every program and appearance.”

Hoffman says the network is working on “a new 7PM strategy.”

CNBC’s Larry Kudlow Nominates Roger Ailes For ‘CNBC First 25′

Well this is interesting.

As part of celebrating its 25th anniversary, CNBC annoucned it will be compiling the “CNBC First 25,” what it calls “a definitive list of people who have had the greatest influence, sparked the biggest changes and created the most disruption in business over the past quarter century.”

CNBC’s Larry Kudlow thinks Fox News co-founder and chairman Roger Ailes fits the bill. Last night on his show, Kudlow nominated Ailes, who ran CNBC in the early 1990s, but is now a fierce competitor.

“Mr. Ailes has broken the dominance of the mainstream media which always tilts left,” said Kudlow. “He is also unapologetic whenever he ruffles anybody’s feathers.” WATCH:

Here’s the criteria to be one of the “CNBC First 25.”

The Top Cable News Programs In October 2012 Were…

October 2012 was a big one for cable news, thanks in large part to the Presidential debates, and the final leg of the campaign. The debates help boost programs, generating a “halo effect” that had an impact on the top cable news programs. Fox News Channel led the way as usual, scoring the top nine programs in total viewers, and the top three in the demo. MSNBC’s strong performance help propel a few of its programs toward the top of the ranker for the month.

In the demo however, it was “Hannity” that claimed the top spot, with “O’Reilly placing third behind “On the Record.” “O’Reilly” averaged 3.92 million total viewers, while “Hannity” drew 856,000 demo viewers for the month.

On MSNBC, “The Rachel Maddow Show” led the way in both total and demo viewers in October. Maddow placed 10th overall in total viewers, and fourth overall in the demo, behind “Hannity,” “On the Record” and “O’Reilly.” Maddow drew 1.57 million total viewers, and 538,000 demo viewers.

The most watched program on CNN was “Piers Morgan Tonight,” which placed 22nd overall in total viewers with 575,000/ The most watched CNN program in the demo was the 8 PM edition of “AC360,” which edged out “PMT” with 177,000 viewers A25-54.

Mayor Bloomberg on How Bloomberg (The Company) Would Stay Prepared

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been front and center over the last few days updating New Yorkers in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. One message that has been consistent in his news conferences is how Sandy’s destruction will make the city and surrounding areas more prepared the next time — like not locating generators in the basements of buildings and testing those generators on a regular basis. This morning he discussed his private sector role, as CEO of Bloomberg, which includes the powerful Bloomberg terminals, news service and Bloomberg TV: “My company… I would have a note to check [the generators] — when I left, the last time I talked to them about it — when we ran on generator power every month.” Bloomberg gave up any operational role in his company when he became mayor in 2002.

Bloomberg also scolded the assembled reporters a bit saying the recovery workers, police and fire personnel “need support rather than to read about criticism all the time.”

Bloomberg’s predecessor, Rudy Giuliani, who was also Mayor during a time of crisis, will be on Larry Kudlow’s show tonight on CNBC to give his perspective.

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.
