Sorry, Fox Business! CNBC Has Best Week In Five Years

CNBC has the last laugh on Fox Business. Just yesterday, Fox Business bought ad space in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal slamming CNBC star Jim Cramer for his “Bear Stearns is fine” comment a week before the investment bank’s collapse. The ad claimed that those would be Cramer’s — and CNBC’S — “Famous Last Words.”

According to TVNewser, the network saw its best week since March 17, 2003 in total viewers, averaging 289,000. The week also set the record for the highest take for CNBC since July 22, 2002.
