Who would have thought that just after eight shows, Megyn Kelly who left Fox News for greener pastures would have her show canceled? I did!
Let me preface my opinion with the notification that Kelly will have another show debut in the fall that is slated for the morning time frame but her Sunday shows are definitely shut down.
Nobody in my circle of common sense thinkers thought Kelly would make it on NBC. Kelly left Fox News to get paid $20 million per year for her views that nobody over there cared about in the first place. Remember, her new format isn’t something that was a mainstay already.
Kelly was a host of a show, not a journalist type question and answer maker like you see on CBS’ 60 minutes. Her first guest was Vladimir Putin and her second guest was Alex Jones. Neither one lit up the viewer totals and from there it turned into utter failure.
After just eight, painfully low rated shows, NBC is pulling the plug on Megyn Kelly’s Sunday “news magazine” show. What an epic failure. NBC is paying Kelly $20+ million per year to stink up the airwaves. What a complete and utter failure for an arrogant, over hyped, overrated hack who rose to fame on Fox News. Then she crashed, big league. Karma works in strange ways, doesn’t it Megyn?
The initial run of Megyn Kelly’s Sunday newsmagazine show will reportedly be taken off the air at least two episodes earlier than scheduled because of her disastrous ratings.
Last week, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly set another viewership low with just 2.71 million total viewers. In the last three weeks, her show has failed to beat the years-old Dateline rerun the network ran in her show’s time slot when Kelly took a week off during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
According to the New York Post, “Kelly’s ratings-challenged Sunday show was announced as a limited” run that would return after the football season. The network was reportedly angling for at least ten episodes but apparently decided to end Kelly’s misery after eight episodes as Kelly’s downward spiral in the ratings did not stop.
An NBC spinmeister claimed that Kelly’s show was going off the air after this week’s show because she needs to be “freed up to focus” on her morning show. Translation: Kelly needs to do all she can to not ruin NBC’s crown jewel Today franchise. Network executives, who reportedly have been freaking out about Kelly’s poor ratings, are probably praying that Kelly simply does no more harm than she has already done in her short time at the network.
Kelly tried to take Trump down and tried to prove she was more powerful than all the woman in America. Now she’s finding out how bad things are when you treat people the way you do. She blocked me on Twitter when I dared to respond to her when she cried about other Fox Host not coming to her aid with the Trump situation.
All I was trying to convey to Kelly was if she didn’t bring on individuals who hated Trump every night things would be a lot better. She blocked me. But I didn’t lose sleep. I’ve been blocked by better, LOL.
