Fast Money is an American financial stock trading talk show that began airing on the CNBC cable/satellite TV channel on 2006-06-21.Beginning October 10, 2007, it was broadcast every weeknight at 5pm ET, one hour after the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange, until mid-2011 when it was moved to just four nights per week, Monday through Thursday, to make room for special option and currency trading shows on Friday evenings.Fill-ins include Pete's brother, Jon Najarian of option MONSTER.com, Tim Seymour, founder of Seygem Asset Management, Carter Worth of Cornerstone Macro, Joe Terranova, Chief Market Strategist at Virtus Investment Partners, Zachary Karabell, President of River Twice Research, Joe Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at thinkorswim, Jared A.Levy, senior derivatives specialist at PEAK6 Investments and Brian Kelly.Fast Money is recorded at the Times Square New York, New York, street-level studios of the NASDAQ by CNBC, a national cable television network owned by NBC Universal/Comcast. On 2007-02-27, a special edition of Fast Money, which covered that day's 416-point plunge on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, aired.It was rebroadcast at 1am ET, pre-empting that night's scheduled airing of The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.After its successful 5pm test run during the week of 2006-09-18, CNBC retried the program again at 8pm the week after.
Michael Eisner, former Disney CEO and current host of his own CNBC show, Conversations with Michael Eisner, made a special guest appearance on this program.
The 5pm ET timeslot, while successful, bumped Kudlow & Company to 8pm.
This brought the show's ratings down substantially compared to where they were before the temporary move.
On March 22, 2013, it returned to the Friday night lineup.
The program airs the first half hour (5pm ET) followed by half hour of Options Action at pm ET.
