    ...and will be repeated a zillion times in the future, e.g. on holidays.. (That's a good thing, since the CNBC shows are one of the things I often catch in reruns due to conflicts originally.)

    FWIW, CNBC decided to use misleading marketing including the word "premiere".

    I'm 90% sure I've seen this before and each section begins with the text "ORIGINALLY AIRED JUNE 2008". :( Oh well.

    Yep. Sort of also implied it was a series, which I don't think it is...

    Well I missed it the first time around, so I still appreciate the heads-up.

    Yup, I was going to post this as well.. The Tivo info gave 2009, not 2008.. but anyway.. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen this one. I keep a note on my iPhone for which of the CNBC specials/documentaries I've seen.

    On CNBC's FB page, they had a post asking what we thought of the show.

    A few people + myself posted about how the misleading marketing that made us think it was a new documentary. Of course, our comments were deleted. :/

    You mean this show on Gates is a copy? It was done before and this is just existing stuff recycled?
