    CNBC has become a liberal Political News channel and no longer reports business news about stocks and the markets, Shep Smith has ruined CNBC and I will not watch it again until they go back to reporting on the markets and investing and leave Politics to CNN and Fox News.

      Sir, you're upset because you mention CNBC is too political and liberal. Well how do you separate politics from investing, the two go hand in hand. Prudent and successful investors always take into account political issues that may be pertinent to their investments. CNBC does an admirable job of bringing people on air from all sides of the political spectrum.
      Is CNBC too liberal? I don't see it, but you are certainly entitled to your opinion. However, you'd be wise to remember this adage, "keep your friends close and enemies closer."

      To everyone who posted comments, I wish all of you much success with your investments.

    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

    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.

    CNBC has no one who can match or stand up business matters against Stuart Varney, Maria Bartirimo, Charles Payne, or Lou Dobbs. Liz Claman isn't all that good on Fox News, and Cavuto leaves MUCH to be desired, and analyst Charlie Gasparino is at the bottom of the heap.

    I love CNBC and everyone on it. Well maybe not Joe Kernen so much, but he provides entertainment value. Everyone on the network is very intelligent and engaging, and mostly objective (except Joe). I have it on all day long now that I'm home most of the time and have time to focus on investing.

    I am amazed that Joe Kernan still has a job. Of all the people you have at CNBC how does he keep his job? Jack Welsh is dead.....get rid of him.

    Do these ratings include 11:00pm EST programming? I watch Brian Williams, as do many of my friends, at that time. I thought his show would be in the top ten?

      Eleventh Hour with Brian Williams is on MSNBC, not CNBC.

    If they’d get rid of Joe Kernen on CNBC, I’d watch. Next is James Cramer. They are so abrasive and toxic that I stopped watching. I stopped watching FOX News when they became propaganda and an echo chamber for republicans so much so that they insult any thinking person.
