CNBC Cans McEnroe

Publish date:

CNBC has pulled the plug on former tennis great John McEnroe's talk show after just six months, AP reported.

McEnroe was averaging about 75,000 viewers per night, sometimes not even registering on Nielsen Media Research’s ratings list due to its low viewership, according to AP.

The Big Idea, hosted by advertising executive Donny Deutsch, will replace McEnroe on CNBC’s schedule, according to AP. The network had run occasional Big Idea specials.
