The Interest Rate of Jim Cramer

Cramer_1130.jpgVariety’s John Dempsey writes about Jim Cramer‘s new deal with CNBC, first reported by TVNewser. Dempsey writes, “Sources say that Fox Business expressed strong strong interest in hijacking Cramer…”

An FBN executive tells TVNewser that Variety’s reporting was “completely inaccurate.”

“Strong interest? Try no interest. Jim approached us about coming to FBN and we turned him down given he has no ratings at CNBC and he was fired from FNC years ago. There weren’t even any discussions with his agent.”

Well, Cramer doesn’t exactly have no viewers. In November Cramer averaged 243,000 in the Nielsen total viewer category.
