NBC Freaking Out: Ratings Down 42 Percent for Second Episode of Megyn Kelly’s Sunday Night Show

Megyn Kelly’s downfall with the Deplorables began when she badgered Donald Trump during her turn at the Republican presidential debates last year.

She lost the conservative viewer at that time, while liberals will never forgive her for her association with Fox News.

I hear there might be an opening for a weather girl at a small Midwestern station, Megyn. You might want to look into that.

A re-air of CBS’s 60 Minutes more than doubled the viewership of NBC’s Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.

In head-to-head competition, 60 Minutes, which was Sunday’s most-watched show, drew 7.9 million viewers while the second episode of Kelly’s show, which included an interview with Erin Andrews, averaged 3.6 million, down -42 percent from its debut episode a week earlier.

In the A25-54 news demo Kelly’s show averaged a 0.8 rating (down -33 percent from last week’s 1.2), while 60 Minutes averaged a 1.1 rating. Kelly’s show improved the 7 p.m. ET timeslot for NBC by +13 percent in the demo, vs. the network’s season-to-date average for the hour (excluding sports and awards shows).

Meanwhile, Breitbart reports that NBC execs are not happy with Kelly at this point.

NBC is reportedly “freaking out” because the network’s over-hyped talent Megyn Kelly has already been a “ratings disaster.”

“They didn’t pay her $15 million for this. They are now worried that her numbers will be bad when she joins the 9 am hour of Today,” a source reportedly told Radar Online. “If Kelly tanks at 9 am she will also bring down Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at 10 am.”

The debut of Kelly’s Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly, with its much-hyped Vladimir Putin interview, could not even beat out a rerun of 60 Minutes. Her second show got clobbered as well. As Radar Online noted, Kelly’s interview with Erin Andrews “was destroyed by 60 Minutes, which scored 7.66 million total viewers. Kelly got a paltry 4.35 million people to tune in to her program.”

Already in desperation mode, NBC is reportedly “scrambling” to land big “gets” like Kathy Griffin or Adrianna Grande because, according to the source, the network seems to have already determined that “people are not tuning in to watch Megyn without huge guests.”

After reportedly being rejected multiple times, Kelly finally found a producer for her daily one-hour morning show just last Friday.

Veteran producer Jackie Levin agreed to produce the show, which is set to debut in September.

NBC News reportedly had trouble locking down an executive producer for Kelly’s daily one-hour show for months. According to one television insider, though “NBC and Megyn Kelly would like you to believe” her show did not have an executive producer because “there are just so many great people lining up for the job,” it was “quite the opposite.”

According to the insider’s source, Kelly and NBC had “approached some big names and they have all said no.”

Kelly reportedly wanted Bill Geddie, Barbara Walters’ longtime producer, to run her morning show. But he reportedly turned her down in addition to other top names because “no one wants to take the gig and most of the blame if Kelly flops at NBC.”

NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack has reportedly been busy lowering expectations for Kelly to the network’s affiliates.

When news of NBC’s hiring of Kelly broke, one executive reportedly said that “the degree of difficulty” would be “extremely high” for Kelly and if she does not succeed, “she could end up fading into obscurity,” especially since her trial run at Fox News for a news-magazine show was panned and got terrible ratings.

Lest anyone accuse us of misogyny for our distaste for Kelly, let it be known that we love Greta and Maria Bartiromo.

  1. With all her money her dark hair roots are showing. If whites are bad, why do women in the (((media))) pretend to have blond hair? Baffling. Could it be because Jew producers love shiksas?

      • I picked up Marilyn Monroes autobiography in a book shop and was unlucky enough to read that exact sentence, However – she did not use the word “jew” in her book. By contrast, Joan Collins (hornbag) denies having ever used sex to advance her career. What a liar! I have not read either book, both a pack of lies – but I scanned the Collins one searching for her true confession about sucking Jew cocks and taking Jew cock up all cavities. I found only her explicit denial. The word Jew never appears in any book by an actor, strange that, unless the actor is a Jew.

    • .you know on Fox the women are all sexed up for the morons who are mesmerized by big boobs and big hair, while they are in a trance, they are fed neocon propaganda ..Now that Kelly is on a libtard network it appears her hair extensions fell off so she can butch up for her new viewers!

      • Haha. I never found Kelly in the least bit attractive. Many others at Fox beat her hands down in the looks department. And Greta always beat her in the interview department.

        That lesbian look you refer to makes her even less attractive.

  2. This flea is circling the drain but won’t go down yet! Hey Kelly your new viewer base of braindead libtards hate Putin and AJones..so why did you interview either of them? I get it all of you media whores are basically working for the same side ..Evil….but the tards that watch fake news don’t know it’s all fake!

  3. I hear there might be an opening for a pole dancer at a small Midwestern biker bar, Megyn. You might want to look into that.

    • Maybe yes. Weird trousers for a female to wear, or any person except a clown in a circus. Very tall with narrow hips.
