CNBC used to turn towards the Fox Business Network and laugh.
They are not laughing anymore.
For the 4th straight month Fox Business Network finished January as the number one business channel on cable, topping CNBC in business day viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
January marks FBN’s second highest-rated month in network history in the 25-54 demo for business day, only behind November 2016.
FBN saw their numbers increase 45% while CNBC dropped:
