The bad news continues to pour down on Megyn Kelly’s head.
Her new NBC show is a debacle.
Now her career just suffered a massive disaster.
The ratings are in for Kelly’s fourth show and the ratings continue to deteriorate.
She lost again to reruns of 60 Minutes and America’s Funniest Home Videos.
“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” continued its downward trajectory in the Sunday overnight ratings, with the new NBC newsmagazine slipping to a new low in both the key demo and total viewers. Meanwhile, Fox fell to an average of less than 1 million viewers on a rerun-dominated night.
Airing at 7 p.m., “Sunday Night” averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen data. That is down from a 0.5 and 3.6 million viewers last week’s episode, which featured Kelly’s controversial interview with InfoWars founder Alex Jones.
In the timeslot, “Sunday Night” lost out to CBS’ “60 Minutes,” which was down from its last new episode on June 11 with a 0.7 and 7.2 million viewers. ABC led the night with a rerun of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.7, 3.9 million).
NBC aired “Despicable Me” and a rerun of “Little Big Shots: Forever Young” for the rest of primetime.”
Kelly’s star has quickly dimmed since she moved to NBC.
She was off the air for months after leaving Fox under a cloud of controversy.
Her new show was forced to debut in the summer since NBC televises football in the fall.
And it is obvious Kelly has alienated viewers across the political spectrum.
To liberals, she will always be tainted by her previous work on Fox News.
She also infuriated conservatives with his personal attacks on Donald Trump during the first Republican Presidential primary debate.
She left herself without a dedicated fan base and her new show is suffering because of it.
It appears to be only a matter of time before NBC cancels her show.
Maybe she can get some tips from “Geee Rall Do Ree- Bear – ah” he has flip flopped so many time during his career anything and everything to try and stay relevant. Maybe she can find an old building in New York and pretend they have found Jimmy Hoffa bring in the cameras and start digging.
Kelly’s hubris came back and bit her on you know what. I have no empathy for this woman, talking-head, she has proven herself irrelevant. Kelly’s political flip-flopping may be the cursed kiss-of-death.
Megyn never was the draw–it was Fox News. That gave her the impression she had elite status, and her self perception she was it. Now, she has discovered she isn’t, and let’s see if she can pick up the pieces? Humility may be the key!
