To say things are not going well for Megyn Kelly would be an understatement. Megyn Kelly’s ratings sink even lower and she is “really worried” about her future at NBC. On the last episode of “Sunday Night with Kegyn Kelly” a new record was set for lowest amount of viewers since the show began in June.
Earlier in the night at 7 p.m. on NBC, “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” drew a 0.4 rating and 3.1 million viewers, the newsmagazine’s lowest total viewer number since it debuted at the beginning of June. Kelly also matched a series low in the key demo.
For CBS, a new episode of “Big Brother” (1.8, 6 million) was even with last week’s Sunday airing. “Candy Crush” aired at 9 p.m., followed by a repeat of “NCIS: Los Angeles.”
NBC aired only repeats with the exception of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”
According to reports, Kelly is panicking due to her plummeting ratings. Part of the report claims she is reaching out to former colleagues in hopes they can offer some advice for her to get things turned around.
Per Life & Style:
People are not tuning in as expected to watch the once popular journalist, and along with her slipping numbers, sources reveal exclusively to Life & Style that Megyn’s spirits are also dropping.
“Megyn’s really worried,” an NBC source says. Megyn, 47, “has been reaching out to former Fox Newscolleagues, including Sean Hannity, but Sean hasn’t returned her calls.”
To kickstart her new primetime gig, the blonde beauty landed a high-profile interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin — but critics claimed Megyn was “outmaneuvered” by the seasoned politician while the audience made it very clear on social media that they were distracted by her short velvet cocktail dress.
Megyn proceeded to follow up that interview with a sit-down with controversial Infowars host and conspiracy theory lover Alex Jones, which brought in dismal ratings (3.6 million viewers). It also forced Megyn to step down as host of the upcoming Sandy Hook Promise gala thanks to Alex’s beliefs that the tragic Connecticut elementary school massacre of 20 students was all a hoax.
Her ratings only continued to plummet further after that, putting her lastest episode with 3.4 million viewers behind reruns of both 60 Minutes (7.2 million) and America’s Funniest Home Videos (3.9 million).
There have been reports that her morning show will feature a live audience.
Megyn Kelly’s NBC morning show will debut Sept. 25 with a live studio audience, POLITICO has confirmed.
The show will air at 9 a.m. and will be part of the “Today” show lineup, though a live studio audience will set it apart from the other hours. The possibility of a live audience had previously been reported, but now it’s official.
The network is currently looking for an audience coordinator ahead of the late September debut, the same week NBC is kicking off its prime-time schedule, which means it will benefit from maximum promotion time.
Megyn Kelly’s Ratings Sink Even Lower
Unless things change, Megyn Kelly will be out of a job by then. Her show has been a complete disaster and has been regularly outperformed by shows such as reruns of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Despite several prominent guests, the ratings sink lower and lower. Do you feel sorry for Megyn?
