Susan Krakower sits, stands, perches, then paces the length of her windowless office. A crease deepens down the center of her forehead. In two hours "Fast Money" airs, and something's not right. The show she created isn't moving fast enough in its second segment, and that's a problem. "I want the trades - get right to it!" she explains. Tonight she's trying something new. It's a quick interlude she dreamed up the previous morning after watching her 7-year-old son's favorite TV programs, Nickelodeon's "iCarly" and "Drake and Josh," which rely on graphics to move the narrative. When the show airs, she'll head downstairs to the control room to swap a new, 15-second sound and visual effect in place of a riff by host Dylan Ratigan.
