FBN's Lou Dobbs Tonight beat CNBC's The Kudlow Report at 7PM among Adults 25-54 during both the third quarter of 2012 and the month of September, marking the program's first quarterly win since its debut in March 2011.

From July-September, Dobbs outperformed Kudlow by an average of 11 percent (41,000 A25-54 viewers versus 37,000), despite FBN being available in approximately one third fewer households than CNBC. This is FBN's first quarterly ratings victory among adults 25-54.

    Do you have Imus’ numbers?

  • XYZ

    Wow a WHOLE 3000 viewers??
    Considering this fool has been on financial news for nearly 3 decades on CNN with, at the time, one of the most watched cable news programs…this ain’t impressive in the least.

  • XYZ

    Last month Imus had 85k total viewers and a pathetic 12k in the demo.

  • Bernard

    33% less available households and doing it with a start-up network is fairly impressive.

    Lou dobbs, sean hannity, and bill o reilly. Those.are real news men! Only ones i like and watch:)

  • Carney

    This just shows what a bunch of idiots running CNN are. He acytually got a boost in prestige, pay and ratings by simply going to a far, far better network. Bunch of losers on CNN.

    Those who post to the TV Cable News numbers always claim that Fox wins because it’s so conservative. But here, one of the MOST conservative hosts on news or business cable, Kudlow, can’t compete. That’s not to say that Dobbs is liberal. but he’s a moderate compared to Kudlow. People may not be aware that Kudlow has a weekend radio show; I wonder how many people tune in to it?
