The show debuted in July. CNBC however faced with a huge slump
in ratings announced to employees that the hour-long show would
stop taping by the end of the year. McEnroe, averaged about
174,000 viewers in its first week on the air compared with about
200,000 drawn by its predecessor, a news programme. On the Fox News
Channel, during the same hour as McEnroes show, Greta Van
Susteren drew an average of 1.8 million viewers.
The show drew an average of 75,000 people a night - and sometimes
got an audience of zero in the official TV ratings system. The former
tennis star has meanwhile blamed the show's failure on the lack
of promotional and marketing activity.
