Fox Biz blasts CNBC’s infomercials… plays more infomercials

A little side topic here – but something I found funny. Execs for the new Fox Business Network have been talking about how CNBC was loaded with infomercials. References to the heavy paid programming load of the older business network have appeared in Broadcasting & Cable, the NY Times and on TVNewser. I was interested to see how FBN would fill weekends and overnights without tons of paid programming avails. Quick answer? They aren’t. According to the Fox Business schedule, the network runs 46 hours of paid programming per week – including five hours each weekday (midnight to 5am) and 21 total on the weekend. CNBC runs 35 hours per week – two hours each weekday (midnight to 2am) and 25 hours per weekend.
