NBC spilled the beans on Megyn Kelly’s future and it wasn’t what anyone was expecting

Megyn Kelly has struggled since jumping ship to NBC news.

Her shows have been failures and plagued by backstage drama.

With her career on the ropes, Kelly got the worst news of her life when NBC quietly made this announcement.

Megyn Kelly debuted on NBC to much fanfare with a Sunday night news magazine show last summer.

It bombed in the ratings and was yanked from the schedule after only eight episodes when it had been originally scheduled for ten.


Now that football and the Winter Olympics are over, observers were wondering if her show would return to the schedule.

NBC didn’t cancel it, but they demoted Kelly to part-time performer.

The network quietly put out a press release saying her show will only appear “periodically.

Fox News reports:

“Megyn Kelly’s Sunday night newsmagazine on NBC was originally billed as a weekly program, but has been demoted to a program that will air “periodically,” according to a press release sent Tuesday by the network.

“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” had an eight-episode run in the summer of 2017 to kick off Kelly’s tour at the Peacock Network before her 9 a.m. ET daily show premiered in the fall. “Sunday Night” struggled to gain an audience, averaging 3.7 million total viewers during its initial eight-week run. The show typically lost to 7 p.m. broadcast competition such as “60 Minutes” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos…

… NBC News sent a press release touting Kelly’s upcoming hour-long primetime special with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday and media watchdogs were quick to notice a sentence at the end of the release.

“This special marks the return of the weekend primetime newsmagazines Kelly will anchor periodically this spring and summer until football season,” the release stated, adding that it is “dependent on Kelly’s schedule with her weekday morning program.”




NBC is trying to minimize their professional and financial embarrassment by demoting her program to periodic airings instead of outright cancellation.

She was paid tens of millions of dollars to add star power to NBC and now she is little more than a utility player for the network.

  1. I gave up on Kelly when the debates were on and she throws out the zinger to then candidate Donald J Trump about Rosie Odonnel.
    Rather then Trump turning into a joke “only Rosie ODonnel”, he should have said something like “we are in a war, our country is NOT secure, their are terrorists all around the world and you are asking me that? Get REAL, Next question that has meaning please!!”

  2. I would suggest that you get the opinion of her first husband also along with your own and put them together as well as remembering that she acted the same as LIARWOOD stars in keeping secrets for 10 years because only the fame mattered to her. And then came along some interest from another media outlet and she spoke out against a FOX boss and started to go against Trump because it was either going to get her big bucks and a new home or she would have to stay at FOX just to have a job. She was showing her true colors and butted heads with Hannity also. But remember that she kept her mouth shut for advancement, selfish I would say. Do NOT sing her praises until you know all there is to know.

  3. Megan Kelly has been on the right side of every story since her debut on FX. Here’ hoping there are enough cool heads at FOX, who can keep their hands to themselves, that would rehire her in an evening prime news or opinion slot.

    One door closes and another one opens.
