Shepard Smith Launches New Show On CNBC – Gets Miserable Ratings

Shepard Smith caused a media stir earlier this year when he abruptly resigned from his show on the FOX News network.

FOX News viewers didn’t mind much. Shep was one of the most liberal hosts on the channel.

Now he has launched a new show on CNBC, but so far it doesn’t look like the viewers at CNBC are too thrilled with his work either.

His ratings are terrible.

Shepard Smith averages 322,000 viewers in first week on CNBC

CNBC’s Shepard Smith averaged 322,000 total viewers in his first week of shows on the Comcast-owned business network, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The former Fox News anchor parted ways with the network in October 2019 after 23 years there. Smith signed with CNBC in July, where he serves as the network’s chief general news anchor and chief breaking general news anchor as well as executive editor of his own program, “Shepard Smith Reports.”

Smith’s Sept. 30 CNBC debut delivered 373,000 viewers nine days ago, with viewership tracking lower than the premiere newscast over the next four shows.

On Oct. 1, Smith registered 321,000 viewers, followed by 331,000 on Oct. 2, 266,000 on Oct. 5 and 321,000 on Wednesday.

Those are pathetic numbers.

The rebroadcast of the Lou Dobbs show gets more viewers.

Even Joy Reid is beating him.

That’s just embarrassing.
