Megyn Kelly’s career has been in a tailspin since she tangled with Trump and eventually left Fox News.
She had hoped to start over again and recast herself at NBC.
But now the word coming from NBC insiders is the last thing she wanted to hear.
The Daily Beast writes:
Four weeks before the Sept. 25 debut of Megyn Kelly Today—the 9 a.m. replacement for the venerable morning show’s third hour, Today’s Take—some NBC insiders are expressing doubts, and even worries, about the network news division’s plan to scrap a reliable long-running program in order to morph the former Fox News anchor and Donald Trump nemesis into an accessible, female-friendly personality for an ethnically diverse daytime viewership.
According to network insiders, her new role is prompting “questions internally about who her audience is exactly” as well as a sense of “total panic” concerning the intense media scrutiny that will unavoidably attend the launch of Megyn Kelly Today, to say nothing of the need to publicly vindicate NBC News Chairman Andy Lack’s $17 million gamble (reportedly her eye-popping annual compensation) when he wooed her away from Fox.
It was not a good omen for Kelly’s daytime prospects when Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly posted disappointing numbers, was reportedly pulled from its limited summer run July 30 two episodes short of the expected 10, and attracted unwelcome controversy with the Alex Jones segment, notably protests from the relatives of the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims (including 20 young children killed in a mass shooting that Jones had called a hoax).
“The Sunday show laid such an egg that any claims that she had automatic star power, to get people in the door to see what she was doing, have been disavowed,” television news analyst Andrew Tyndall told The Daily Beast.
As we get closer to Megyn Kelly’s Today debut, you can probably expect a lot more stories like these.
Fox’s audiences are more forgiving when you “balance” your news coverage by interviewing far-left fruitcakes. NBC’s audiences, on the other hand, will tolerate no interviews with anyone who is NOT a far-left fruitcake. Apparently, Megyn Kelly is unaware of the difference in the audiences.
She made the classic mistake of thinking she was more important than the subject matter. It all started when she went stomping around the studio on the previous election night. Thought she hot sh!t after that, and it showed in the tone and tenor of her of on air persona.
I used to like her but I haven’t watched anything she’s done since the first presidential debate last year. Most people never knew she could be so nasty.
Kathy Griffin & Megyn have self destructed…and they did it to themselves.
I will never watch the unprofessional hack Rosie O fat arse sidekick megyn kelly!! She spent WEEKS in the BOWELS of Fox working on her debate questions and came out looking like the Ho she really is!! I thought it fittingthat when she had Trump barred from the Republican Commission meeting the following weekend in Geotgia, that the Manager who Barred him for Megyn Kelly was fired!! Shooting the far Turd would have been more appropriate!!
I did like to watch her at Fax News, until she decided to do her Trump attack. I am not sure it did any good for her. It is a loss from the possible balanced reporting, when she decided to leave Fox. it is too bad it has to end this way, when she could have become a “REAL REPORTER ” if she would have decide to look at the positive side of Pres. nominee Trump. Sorry to see her taking the WRONG SIDE to try to advance her carrier, it did not work.
President Trump (then Mr. Trump) did her the biggest Network favor when he singled her out with his very rude & crude remarks. Before that she was almost tolerable,afterwards her voice changed ( more shrill) her looks changed (more severe) plus she started to believe her own press. Not sorry she left Fox, No I won’t be watching her or any news coming out of NBC (Nothin’But Clinton )Not news..
No, I won’t watch her
NO…she did this to herself.. I have no compassion for her and will never ever watch her again…I don’t care if she did a children’s show…I used to really like her…and then she did a 360* turn…and became evil….that did it …and she had a chance to do a turn around while she was still with FOX but she held her ground as a nasty nasty biotch….she’s a has been now….and not to mention your news is totally biased not fair and balanced so no one will be watching YOU at all….
No, I will not be watching her show, life is too short to waste your time watching liberals. It’s like watching CNN, I can literally feel my IQ level draining from my head, every time one of their Talking Heads begin to speak! I have a constant urge to want to throw something at the TV, so I would rather watch something more entertaining, like grass growing.
Megan went from being well liked prior to the first presidential debate to being despised for her attacking Presidential Candidate Trump. By trying to be cute Megan succeeded in bringing on her own down fall. No one to blame but herself.
I haven’t watch NBC and it’s supporting stations since the network hired Megyn Kelly. Did not care for her one sided opinions when she was on Fox, I surely am not going to listen to what she has to say on a network that doesn’t report the news in it’s entire light. NBC as well as other networks DO NOT have the good of the nation in their journal reporting. Really sad.
She may would make a good cocktail waitress in LasVegas or a stripper poke may fit nicely between her legs. Serious journlist – naw., television – naw, moved Es – naw, lawyer perhaps she is sleezy enough for that job
