What’s up with CNBC? ?

What is up with CNBC’s  recent programming gyrations? It defies logic.
Consider these moves:
-Cutting back their top rated (and my favorite) show — Kudlow & Cramer  — from 4X to just once a day (big mistake);
-The Dennis Miller Show  — it makes no sense on this network — and that’s before you get to the fact that its simply unwatchable;
-Moving Maria off the NYSE floor (which was likely her choice) has left a void — find a new “Money Honey” to replace her with (How about the woman from CNBC Asia? — Amanda something — she has a similar look and demeanor);
Now, if we can only break them of their celebrity addiction, it would make Jack Welch proud.
