What's up with CNBC? ?
What is up with CNBC's recent programming gyrations? It defies logic.
Consider these moves:
-Cutting back their top rated (and my favorite) show -- Kudlow & Cramer -- from 4X to just once a day (big mistake);
-The Dennis Miller Show -- it makes no sense on this network -- and that's before you get to the fact that its simply unwatchable;
-Moving Maria off the NYSE floor (which was likely her choice) has left a void -- find a new "Money Honey" to replace her with (How about the woman from CNBC Asia? -- Amanda something -- she has a similar look and demeanor);
On the positive side, grabbing Dylan Radigan from Bloomberg was a smart move, and his show BullsEye -- at least the first half hour -- is a lively format that seems to work.
Now, if we can only break them of their celebrity addiction, it would make Jack Welch proud.

As for replacing Maria... What is wrong with Alexis Glick?
I agree completely with you on K&C.
Can't say I agree with you on Bullseye, and I can't stand that Becky Quick.
