For CNBC, 2014 Was The Worst. Year. Ever. (ZeroHedge, Jan 1, 2015):

Another year of putting lipstick on the zombie known as the global economy, kept walking only thanks to $11 trillion in liquidity injections by the world’s central banks and tens of trillions of new Chinese credit created out of thin air and promptly misallocated and embezzled, and the results are in. The bottom line: according to Nielsen, is that despite the S&P recording a whopping 53 all time highs, and the Dow rising over 18,000, the channel that was once must watch financial TV for mom and pop, and has since devolved into endless cheerleading of failed policies and rigged markets, namely CNBC, just suffered its worst year in, well, ever.

But don’t worry: the “retail investor” who has now fully given up on the “market”, will surely be back this year, and with it CNBC’s ratings.

In the meantime, here are the facts:

  • CNBC’s Total Business Day segment (M-F 9:30a-5p), just delivered its lowest rated year since 1995 with P2+ and delivered its lowest rated year ever since 1992 with the 25-54 demographic

Program Highlights 2014

  • Squawk Box delivered its lowest rated year ever with both total viewers and the 25-54 demo
  • Squawk on the Street delivered its lowest rated year ever with both total viewers and the 25-54 demo
  • Fast Money/Halftime Report delivered its lowest rated year ever with both total viewers and the 25-54 demo
  • Power Lunch delivered its lowest rated year ever with both total viewers and the 25-54 demo
  • Street Signs delivered its lowest rated year ever with both total viewers and the 25-54 demo
  • Closing Bell (3p-5p) delivered¬† its lowest rated year ever with both total viewers and the 25-54 demo
  • Fast Money delivered its lowest rated year ever with total viewers and its 2nd lowest rated year ever with the 25-54 demo (lowest rated year ever is 2013)
  • Mad Money delivered its 2nd lowest rated year ever with total viewers (lowest rated year is 2013) and its lowest rated year ever with the 25-54 demo

Finally, one wonders if without the Fed and other central banks, the real S&P500 wouldn’t look like the chart of CNBC’s Nielsen ratings…

CNBC 2014

How ironic, then, that another market crash is precisely what CNBC needs to regain its audience before it slides into complete oblivion (by both viewers and advertisers).

  1. It is so true. They spin lies every day, and evidently people are finally getting the message…….no matter what is going on in the real world, they talk about narrow corporate chosen subjects that have nothing to do with truth. People who have money to invest don’t like to listen to liars. Just like their sister shows on MSNBC and NBC, the subjects on their shows are chosen each day by corporate yes men…….and all channels cover the same stories.

    I remember when we had three major networks, and eventually, all covered the same stories at the same time each day. Weather and sports followed the daily spin of rubbish. This was before the days of the Internet, and I used to find good stories in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. I was an avid reader of both into the 21st century. Once the WSJ got bought out by Murdoch, I cancelled my subscription. The New York Times slid downhill as well. Fortunately, we had the Internet by that time, and now, they scrub the net.

    The story I have followed since 2010 about Hugh Chavez introducing the first electronic currency, the Sucre, rendering the need for any world reserve currency was written up in a small Internet Journal. When Russia and China picked up his model, I realized they would change the world……and they have. Today, if you want to find this story, you will find two sentences on the Sucre, and nothing else…………all has been scrubbed. CNBC and Bloomberg sure won’t admit the US is no longer the world economic leader, or that the need for any world reserve currency has been wiped clean by technology.

    I guess they think if they scrub the story, it will cease to be true. Regardless of the fact about 75% of the world economies now use electronic currencies to translate the value of their native monies instead of converting to the dollar, they continue to hide the truth. The US is no longer a world economic power, and all the lies from CNBC or Bloomberg will not fix a thing.

    Bloomberg was a good station for a while, but now, they lie like the others. I am not sure what happened there. They are now just as pathetic as CNBC.
    CNBC is the remaining mouthpiece of US financial lies.

    The US is finished, and few Americans realize what is coming down the pike. They don’t realize real estate will never come back because the wealth that generated it is gone. The rich jobs, except for a few pockets of prosperity where high tech gets paid with government contracts, are gone. The growth, the opportunities, they are all gone. The US has become a desert for opportunities, all are gone.

    So, make money off the get rich schemes of others? That is what CNBC offers, and most people are too cautious now. They are realizing their homes ae not going to grow into profit mills, and that life in the US has changed. Our wonderful days of growth and optimism are gone….along with the good jobs, the strong middle class……..all has been destroyed. Greedy guts have once again destroyed another empire.
