Crowd Rules with Pat Kiernan

Several years ago, Jim Cramer had a similar segment with college students and they tracked stocks over an extended period of time, possibly a week or two weeks, with the top school winning scholarship money.

Was this different than the Fast Money MBC Challenge that aired on CNBC about five years ago? Thing I remember about that is that the two finalist schools put all their seed money into energy stocks.

Oops.


That might have been it.

I liked it. Pat Kiernan has some business acumen behind him and isn\'t just a pretty-face interviewer. I\'ve never seen a show where the two hosts make up part of the voting, but they\'re two votes out of 100, which is made up of CEOs and various business-minded folks.

The Fast Money MBA Challenge was a fairly straightforward quizzer hosted by Dylan Ratigan, IIRC. I remember it having a round called Hostile Takeover, but it being no more than \"challenge the weakest player on the other team to answer this tough question\". I don\'t recall Jim Cramer being involved with that show; however, he has done college tours that may resemble what Mike is referring to.

\"Crowd Rules\" has been yanked after just two episodes due to lousy ratings....

That would explain the airing of \"60 Minutes on CNBC\" that my Tivo grabbed instead of Crowd Rules.

What rating did it get, and what were they expecting?

Crowd Rules debuted to 47,000 total viewers and 12,000 in the 25-54 demo, according to TVNewser.  By comparison, two other CNBC \"reality\" shows, Treasure Detectives and Car Chasers, drew five times the demo and 5-6 times the overall numbers as \"Crowd Rules\" -- I\'m thinking CNBC was expecting at least 200,000 overall/50,000 demo for the show.


 


Last week, Fox Business beat CNBC for the first time ever in a non-election primetime night.  \"Cavuto\" and a rerun of \"The Willis Report\" beat, you guessed it, \"Crowd Rules\".

Pat Kiernan is canned after two episodes, and Brooke Burns gets The Chase.

People would rather watch two shows that barely belong on the History Channel, let alone a financial news station.


 


Either I\'m underestimating the average American viewer, or people really, really love shows about people buying antique shiat.

I try to not go to the Idiocracy well too often because I think it is the easy shot to take and it isn\'t always warranted, but I think it is appropriate here.

I don\'t like being a TV snob; it\'s unbecoming and I love trashy television like anyone. What makes me angry is that people actually had a chance to learn something. This wasn\'t just Queen for a Day where whoever has the hardest-luck story wins the money. If you were paying attention you could see what happens on the business side of a business, and that profits and payroll don\'t just come from magical gnomes who poop net income on the books. You could also see the challenges and travails of a company, whether self-made or happenstance, and how those businesses deal with the hard times.

A really good show that manages to be positive and upbeat without being cloying or preachy is nuked after two weeks, yet there are so many empty calorie \"reality\" shows that are unworthy of our time that they could fill a Pringles can.
