Megyn Kelly is back in the news….

Filed under: TV shows — furtherglory @ 12:37 pm

Let me say right off the bat that I love Megyn Kelly. She is very beautiful and very gutsy (if that is a word).

Her problem is that she is not highly educated and she makes many mistakes; she doesn’t know what every college graduate knows, and that makes her appear to be stupid.

Megyn is in the news now because of her recent interview with Tom Brokaw.

The following quote is from this news article: https://jezebel.com/confusing-and-a-little-jarring-what-tv-anchors-think-o-1819150675

Begin quote

When NBC announced the decision to give Kelly her own morning slot—despite poor ratings for her initial Sunday night series—a swath of viewers and fellow media members disapproved, especially since it meant she’d be replacing fan favorites Tamron Hall and Al Roker.

In her first week on air, Kelly managed to make headlines at least, leaving Jane Fonda dumbfounded by a plastic surgery question. In the second week, days after the deadliest mass shooting in the US., Kelly was criticized for appearing to cut off Tom Brokaw as he was critiquing the NRA.

Behind the scenes, the show’s producers seem to be struggling to figure out what a Megyn Kelly show should look like. While NBC remains patient by necessity, and as Kelly grows more comfortable in the role, ratings have reportedly been soft and slipping since the first week, hitting a “possible all-time low” for the Today Show brand, according to Page Six sources. Adjacently, publicists appear to be reluctant to feature their clients on the show—“I literally haven’t pitched anyone even from right out the gate. The buzz that is out there is so bad,” one publicist told Variety.

Many of the TV anchors and personalities I spoke to—who work for local stations or major network affiliates—agree that there’s a problem, much of which has to do with Kelly’s attempt to outrun her past life. Here’s what peers had to say about the Megyn Kelly Today format, its execution, pros, cons, and whether Megyn Kelly can survive in the morning.

End quote
That’s all she wrote — and she rubbed that out. (words from an old song)

  1. This is about Tom Brokaw,not Megyn. Sorry. I don’t know what Tommy Boy said about the NRA,but it was probably more stupid ass liberal shit. NRA isn’t the problem. Like the old adage goes,”you can get whatever you want,if the price is right”. Do people really think drive by shootings will stop,with more gun control ? No. Would it have stopped the shit in Vegas ? No. While I’m talking about Vegas,why does it always take something tragic like that,before they want to start with their gun control BS? It’s almost like a “fad” for them. I think the shits a bit hinkey if you ask me. Vegas shooting,then a couple days ago we had another one. Think about. Any other mass shootings after Charles Whitman pulled his stunt ? No. Out of nowhere another mass shooting after Vegas . Shit just seems f$$ked up if you ask me
