Megyn Kelly has not been doing well ever since she moved to NBC. They paid $15 million for her. However, her first interview with Putin, which should have have millions of viewers, did worse than a re-run of 60 Minutes. Now some at NBC are having doubts.
An anonymous NBC source told Radar online that the network “is freaking out.” “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,” said the source.
“If Kelly tanks at 9 am she will also bring down Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at 10am,” said the source. The source added that it seems like no one will tune into Megyn’s show unless she has some big guest. “NBC needs big gets to increase Megyn’s numbers. People are not tuning in to watch Megyn without huge guests,” explained the guest.
“They are trying to get first interviews with Kathy Griffin and the first interview with Arianna Grande,” explained the source. Kathy Griffin, the woman who held a decapitated Trump head, is apparently the best that Megyn can do.
After her first Putin interview was a flop, her second was even worse. Her interview with Erin Andrews got 4.35 million views. 60 Minutes received 7.66 million views. Do you think Megyn Kelly’s career is over?
