WHO’S WATCHING AL JAZEERA AMERICA?

There was much tongue wagging after it was reported that Al Jazeera America had gone on the air last week with an average of just 22,000 viewers, spiking to 54,000 with Real Money with Ali Velshi. But on Monday it was disclosed that CNBC, the business channel owned by Comcast, suffered some of its worst ratings since March of 1993. Despite the fact that it’s in 2 1/2 times the number of homes as AJAM, it drew just 128,000 total viewers, a ten-year low, while viewers in the all-important 18-49 age group plummeted to 37,000, a 20-year low. Larry Kudlow’s program was hit hardest, with just 20,000 viewers, a 53-percent plunge from last year.
