Fox Business Network scrapped its entire primetime lineup today, the New York Times reported. Beginning February 20, a repeat of the 5PM to 8PM block of shows fronted by Gerri Willis, Neil Cavuto and Lou Dobbs will replace political programming in the 8PM to 11PM slot. The Willis, Cavuto and Dobbs programs tend to feature Republican politicians and conservative commentators as guests, but they are less overtly political than shows they are replacing. Those programs are Freedom Watch with Andrew Napolitano, Power & Money with David Asman and Follow the Money with Eric Bolling. All three will remain contributors in other regular slots. Fox Business News last year had an average of 54,000 total viewers in primetime. Rival CNBC had an average of 228,000 primetime viewers.
