Megyn Kelly’s move to NBC has not worked out for anyone.
Not for her. And not for NBC.
Her downward spiral continued with this gigantic disaster.
Kelly’s Sunday night news magazine program is a flaming ratings dumpster fire.
The latest episode of her show finished with its lowest ratings in its brief run.
“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly reached another low for total viewers last night, this time only getting 3.1 million total viewers compared to the measly 3.21 million total viewers Kelly got the week before when she established her previous low, according to Nielsen data.
As Breitbart News has reported, Kelly’s last two programs have failed to beat out a years-old rerun of Dateline that ran during the Fourth of July holiday weekend when Kelly took a week off. The years-old rerun of Dateline that ran in Kelly’s time slot got 3.73 million total viewers and averaged .5 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo. Kelly’s last two programs have averaged a .4 rating in the 18-49 demo.
Once again, Kelly’s show lost to reruns of 60 Minutes and America’s Funniest Home Videos.
Kelly’s disastrous ratings, in addition to giving Matt Lauer job security, have led executives to wonder whether her Sunday night program will even come back on the air after football season, which cannot come soon enough for Kelly and most Americans.”
Kelly’s Sunday night show is a train wreck.
It got off to a poor start when her first episode received mediocre reviews after liberal critics were infuriated she didn’t coerce Vladimir Putin to admit to rigging the 2016 election.
Now Kelly has one more chance to salvage her NBC career.
Her daytime talk show will premiere on September 25th.
This is a high-pressure situation.
NBC canceled the popular Today Talk to make room for her daytime program.
But previous attempts by prime time cable news hosts to transition into daytime talk show hosts failed miserably.
