It just dawned on me that I haven't seen a single ad for the CNBC debate next week. I guess they are advertising on CNBC, NBC and MSNBC and I don't watch anything on those channels. I'm actually going to have to find CNBC in advance because I watch the Fox Business channel for that type of news.

They are still going to have 10 people debating:

"The 10 candidates are Trump, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Marco Rubio, ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, former Hewlett-Packard chief Carly Fiorina, Sen. Ted Cruz, ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Christie, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and Sen. Rand Paul."

Trump could be a 'great president': Langone

Do you think this debate will have lower much ratings?

I think the viewers are more likely to increase rather than decrease. I think a lot of people who weren't that interested before will have heard all the talk and tune in to see what is going on. I really don't ever remember there being this much attention this early but one of the many things that Trump has said they ring true is that this is a "movement". Yes, it is and past due.

Not sure what the point is in rotating networks. What more did we get by going from Fox to CNN? CNBC is a business channel. It only makes sense if they go heavy on the economy. But no, I haven’t seen any promotions anywhere but I don’t watch them either.

We cut the cord years ago. In part because these cable "news" channels don't interest us.

I can't imagine why anyone would pay to watch the always loud teleprompter monkeys giving opinion AS news, gushing over celebrities & sports figures, and making themselves the focus instead of what they are supposed to be reporting on. All that interspersed with huge numbers of pointless commercials too.

If you found C-SPAN for the Benghazi hearing, it's pretty close. I am not sure because I don't get channel 94,000 on my cable plan.

I don't think I've ever watched CNBC.
What agenda do they support?

People are watching the debates.

The Democratic debate attracted 15 million viewers and the Republican debate started at 24 million. Usually, we are told, the debates only get around 5 million viewers at this stage.

So, yeah. I think people will find it. They may not stay, though, if they get bored.

As long as Trump is on the stage there is the potential to be entertained. Carson, too, though his form of idiocy is much less showy, so not quite as much fun. Still, people will stick around in the hope of being entertained. I know it's the only thing that has kept me tuning in to the Republican debates. Once these two are gone--and they will eventually be gone--so will I. And probably half of the rest of the audience as well.

Of course I do, every once in a while NBC Sports puts a Formula 1 practice/qualifying session on CNBC.
