I-Man picks up FBN

I prefer FBN to CNBC anyway, but have yet to wake up in time for Imus. I have always enjoyed his dry wit.

Quote:
That put Fox Business a few thousand viewers ahead of CNBC for the first time since FBN went on the air two years ago. People in the industry, however, cautioned that Imus and CNBC's morning "Squawk Box" tap different audiences and are not really in direct competition.

Radio host Don Imus has brought Fox Business Network its first ratings victory against CNBC with the simulcast of his WABC radio program.

Supernanny does straighten them out, doesn't she? Her zero tolerance for nonsense would contribute greatly to both the boardroom and the government.
