Brian Stelter reports the struggling network is dumping the political talk shows that now air from 8 to 11 p.m. ET and replaying programming shown from 5 to 8 p.m. ET, giving more exposure to anchors Gerri Willis, Neil Cavuto and Lou Dobbs. Stelter notes:
Last year the channel had an average of 54,000 total viewers in prime time, placing it in the bottom tier of all cable channels rated by Nielsen. The leading business news channel, CNBC, had an average of 228,000 viewers in prime time.
