Kudlow & Cramer was an American business and politics television program hosted by conservative Lawrence Kudlow and liberal Jim Cramer, which aired weekdays from 2002 to 2005 on CNBC. The program initially ran at 8 PM Eastern Time, taking over the time slot of Hardball with Chris Matthews (which moved to sister channel MSNBC), but later moved to the 5 PM slot.

Kudlow & Cramer was the successor to the short-lived CNBC show America Now, which began with a rotating set of hosts and ended with Kudlow and Cramer as the two co-hosts. CNBC then created a show specifically for the two; the ordering of the name was picked via a coin toss at the end of the last America Now episode.

Kudlow & Cramer had high TV ratings in comparison to other CNBC shows, after CNBC's TV ratings went down because of the negativity of the dot-com bubble burst and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S.[citation needed]

The program last aired on February 11, 2005, before it was split into Kudlow & Company, which first aired February 14, and Mad Money, hosted by Cramer, which began on March 14 of the same year, replacing Dylan Ratigan's Bullseye .
