This nightly half-hour business wrap-up on PBS used to be a staple of our after-dinner viewing. Friday's were especially compelling with some impressive money managers interviewed.
No more. The show has steadily deterioriated under CNBC management to where we can no longer watch. Suzie Gharib, the last hold-over from the old program, left in December. The show now seems little more than a short synopsis of CNBC's emotion-packed but worthless daytime programing - designed strictly to "showcase" various CNBC celebrities.
Notably missing from the "showcase", however, has been CNBC's morning anchor Joe Kernen. Wondering if PBS may have imposed limitations excluding his appearance on PBS due to his overtly right-wing political views?
