Squawk

This is truly the best morning show around. Andrew and Becky are great but Joe is the secret sauce that makes the show outstanding. When Joe is off, it’s just not the same. I enjoy the banter and irreverence. They all call it like it is.

Tired of Joe Kernen

Joe is like the cranky right wing grandpa and sometimes really drags down segments. He talks over and shouts down Becky, Andrew and even guests when the discussion veers into politics. Often quotes at length WSJ editorials—is he on Rupert Murdoch’s payroll or does Rupert pay CNBC directly? The show would be way more substantive without him. Andrew and Becky should go file harassment claims with HR—it’s not funny or entertaining. Joe needs to go. Why is he allowed to so actively promote Trump. Joe should be sent to Fox News.

The best morning show.

I’m a huge fan. I enjoy the political banter between Andrew and joe. And I laugh when Becky jumps in to make peace. Joe is the smartest republican around and I sometimes even agree with him. But Andrew is always right in the mark. Keep it up guys.
