Money Pit? CNBC's Maria Bartiromo Loses 40% Of Demo Viewers In 2010 (From ABB thread)

2010 was not good to CNBC's Maria Bartiromo.

Bartiromo, arguably the most recognizable face at CNBC, lost 40% of her demo (ages 25-54) viewers in 2010 according to Nielsen. Yes.

Bartiromo is not alone. CNBC saw one of its worst years in the 25-54 demo in the past decade and ratings are way down across the board, but Bartiromo suffered the worst drop. [Numbers below].

Clearly the entire network needs a shot in the arm that goes way beyond Jim Cramer's excessively energetic show. However, the sort of headlines the newschannel might generate by switching up Bartiromo's chair might be just the thing.

A few years back the obvious successor to Bartiromo was Erin Burnett, but over the years Burnett has lost her newness factor raising the question: is it time for some fresh blood?

The shills at GE, NBC, and now the business news arm of CNBC are now getting their comeuppance. With their extreme liberal business reporting, starting with the 2008 election, I watch them less and less and less.

She’s got that NY nasally twang. Can’t stand her voice. I don’t care what she has to say - her voice is awful...

Maria is a conservative on a liberal channel (CNBC). I notice her frequent appearances on Morning Joe have gone to nonexistent. Put her on FOX and her ratings will rocket.

Looks like the "Money Honey" is aging out and the Foxes at Fox Business are getting all the action.

I guess she will have to find another street other than Wall to pedal her wares.

The stores from people on the NYSE floor about her. LOL! I dumped TV over a year ago because it all shills for Obama even Fox. YouTube had a video of her fawning and sucking up to Prince Al Waleed cause the Saudi essentially backstop GE’s worthless debt.

I quit watching CNBC when Fox Business channel came on. The only interesting thing CNBC had was Peter Schiff interviews.

Maria has got those big bedroom eyes and Isabella Rosselini lips going for her but I don’t think she is as good an interviewer as Gerri Willis or Liz Clayman on Fox Business.

Additionally, Sandra Smith, who used to work at CME, on FBN seems to have a better understanding of the commodities market; she’s not bad looking either. Her views remind me of Rick Santelli, whose presentation I attended - great speaker and a great guy!

Even Jenna Lee (beautiful young redhead) on FBN asked good questions when she went back to San Francisco to interview business folks. She’s now at Fox News Channel.

You are exactly right.

I’ve seen her tangle with regulators and czars from the Regime and also with some of the lefty flacks on her own team.

She’s a pretty good reporter on a bad network.

As long as they shill for the maoist they have no credibility.

Hearing Larry kudlow rave about the economy is ludicrous.

Very few on that channel have anything to say to me.

WE'RE in for taxing times if Barack Obama wins the White House, says CNBC's Maria Bartiromo. "He's going to take the capital gains tax at 15 percent right now all the way up to 25 to 28 percent," the "Money Honey" tells Avenue. "Sell anything, like a home or stocks, and make a profit . . . [almost] 30 percent of the profit will go to the government instead of 15." The income tax is also in for a bump. Bartiromo says, "Right now [it] is 35 percent, Obama wants to take that to 39 percent . . . We're talking about people who make over $200,000. That's not rich. So it's actually going to impact more people than you may think."

Get a clue pal Maria ain't no liberal which is why she is losing ratings on CommunistNBC.

People who are 25-54 are AT WORK!! I watch for a few minutes every morning, then I’m gone. My guess is that most viewers are retired, have money and want to keep track of things. But really, who else can sit around all day and watch it? Besides, that’s what the Internet is for. And you can do that at work.

The only proof you need that Obummer owns all of CNBC is to Watch Kudlow every night. His comments at the drop of a hat that Obummer is totally pro business in comparison to his Sat morning program on 770AM WABC where he is fully open to comment on the disaster this guy is. CNBC commentators are muzzled.

It's because they are not independent, they are shills. Learned that 30 years ago. Used to have a subcription to Money magazine back then, bought one of their "Five-Year High Flyers" funds, which was Monetta Fund.

True, it was the best high-flyer, HOWEVER, what I didn't know was that it was at the end of its run.

Reason being, it was a small, nimble fund, which could easily re-allocate its holdings, and had a great five-year run. But, once it became well-known, money poured into it by the billions, and it became a big, sluggish fund.

I didn't lose money in it, in fact made about 8% annually, but that was poor performance during the buildup of the tech bubble.

Moral of the story is, don't trust these shills, do your own research, and learn from experience.

Probably nothing to do with this female host and a lot to due with the fact that Individual Investors have largely fled the stock market.

The most active trades these days are by Large Institutions and Hedge Funds.

Mom and pop investors realize the fix is in and no longer invest like they used to and there is no longer a need to watch shows regarding the stock market.

CNBC may be run by a liberal network, but the majority of the analysts are superb. Rick Santelli, the Paul Revere of the Tea Party movement,still reports from the the bond pit for CNBC.

Fox Business has no depth to their coverage.

I imagine that the loss of viewers is not Maria's fault. I'm guessing that the circus-like buffoonery of MSNBC or any NBC brand has driven away any semi-sane CNBC viewers. Unfortunately, the sane demographic that has been driven away were probably disproportionately the type of people that formerly watched her show. Maria would be smart to jump the sinking ship and move to a more professional network, where she would do fine.

Once I figured out we had Fox Business, I turned them on also. Hubby still keeps CNBC on in the bedroom, he likes Rick Santelli and Mark Haynes (even tho Mark is a HUGE lib, he’s a funny guy).

Dylan Ratigan, insane host on MSNBC was the host back in 2008-09. He was very good in describing what was going on. They were working hard to not be political on that show. I was unhappy he left. Now we see he is crazed!
