Mad Money, launched on March 14, 2005, is an educational finance television show broadcast on the national cable television network CNBC and hosted by Jim Cramer. The program's focus is to help its viewers, who own stocks and feel like they are on the outside looking in, become better investors by analyzing stocks and the market through the prism of events. Mad Money, which is recorded at CNBC's headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, occasionally with a live studio audience, features lively guest interviews, viewer calls, and the fiery opinions of Cramer himself. Mad Money is aired on CNBC on weekdays, Monday through Friday, at 6-7pm ET.

Jim Cramer, who also serves as co-anchor on Squawk on the Street, believes there is always a bull market somewhere; and by equipping his viewers with the right knowledge and tools, they will be empowered to find it. In his words: “I sometimes play a clown, too, and I'm proud of it... So even though the purists think I can't be rigorous because I have sound effects and props, I'm going to keep up the humor, keep up the education and keep trying to help you make money.” In short, Jim Cramer is the viewer's personal guide through the jungle of Wall Street investing, navigating through both opportunities and pitfalls with the ultimate goal of making money.

    Shep is great. Worldwide Exchange is great since Brian Sullivan took over. Cramer should be taken off the morning show as he adds no real investing advice and far too much fanboy for any CEO who will talk to him. Too much switching around of good hosts.

    CNBC has gone way left.
    Mr Cramer did his very best politicizing every business topic during the election against President Trump. Plus he truly spreads fear over Covid and professes his superiority in intelligence about the topic. Carl & David have been rolling their eyes and have tried to reel him in to no avail....Their show now brings no real business value as the commentary is just Cramer rants and there is no credible stock analysis. Cramer should go into pushing Penny stocks , I think he’d be good at that.
    BTW , Shep is awful.

    News, education and entertainment without being boring - try that for size - enjoyed it as the only newsworthy station especially in the last year - Jim Cramer is a gem!

    Tyler constantly puts his foot in his mouth,
    Commenting on how nice the houses look in a reporter backdrop , right after a segment on not enough money in the stimulus for apartment buildings. Such a pill.

    Stuart Varney said everyone would "unload their stocks" if Biden was elected. CNBC (Cramer) said a Biden win and split government would give the market a bump. As long as you are right I don't care what side of the political spectrum people believe you are on! Squawk on the street is gold, keep up the good work.

      The only thing that helped prevent what Varney said from happening was the announcement of 2 Chinese virus vaccines, conveniently announced after the election as payback from big pharma because President Trump forced them to stop overcharging American consumers for prescription drugs. As a viewer of a financial cable channel, I would think you'd be more aware of a detail like that effecting the market

    CNBC, FOX business and Bloomberg are all a burden on the basic cable viewers who have no interest in viewing these channels. For the 1.5 that is charged to pay tv companies for 100 percent of the subscribers the best thing would be to have the viewers of these channel to pay for them ala carte.

    I enjoyed watching Worldwide Exchange. But it is too early for us in California to watch it live. Anyone know why it is off the air the last couple of days?

    Joe Kernen is the worst broadcaster in the industry. He mumbles, slouches, and constantly interrupts guests and his co-hosts with his personal agenda. Squawk Box ratings are at the bottom of CNBC shows, behind even Options Action! Such poor results for the networks morning show has to hurt the rest of the line-up throughout the day. Make a change to make the program more watchable, ie, get rid of Kernen.

      You obviously are just wanting a full liberal slant to your financial news, which you have with almost every other person on this network.

    I rely on CNBC to keep me informed about Market and market moving information. All the commentators are entertaining and guests are, for the most part, relevant and interesting. I've been watching the show throughout my trading day since 2010. Based on this show, I've subscribed to CNBC.COM as a Pro subscriber. My only criticism would be that, during this 2020 election system, they back off on the Liberal commentary - skewed to far to the left - and I'd rather stay focused on business anyway.

    Only watch Fast Money and Mad Money but for the last month very panelist works in the phrase” blue wave”. Now that the temperamental twit from Fox takes over 7 PM I am totally gone. C yu, nice while it lasted. Refuse to watch and channel with The Shep
