Fox Business Gets Enough Viewers to Count

Oct 3, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Fox Business Network’s coverage this week of the national economic turmoil drew enough viewers to exceed the minimum Nielsen Media Research needs to certify its statistics as reliable, the New York Times reports. The almost year-old channel averaged 81,000 viewers per hour between 1 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Monday, when the House rejected the proposed bailout and the Dow Jones dropped nearly 778 points. While measurable, the viewership pales in comparison to CNBC, which averaged 900,000 viewers during the same time frame, the newspaper says.
