Megyn Kelly thought she’d made the best move of her career when she left Fox News to join NBC earlier this year. She quickly learned how wrong she was when her Sunday night news show plummeted in the ratings since it’s debut last month. Now, Kelly’s struggling Sunday night show has learned it’s fate…
Daily Mail reported that “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” has been cancelled, as it is due to wrap up two episodes earlier than expected on Sunday when her interview with comedian Ricky Gervais premieres. Though the show may return next summer after the Winter Olympics, that will likely only happen if Kelly manages to survive in the morning show world at NBC.
While her evening show is over, Kelly still is hanging on by a threat at NBC, as her morning show “Megyn Kelly Today” is set to premiere at 9am on September 25. The show’s moniker will be revealed to NBC staffers today during internal meetings.
NBC insiders say the show will be in front of a live studio audience and Kelly is already filming live segments.
“Megyn is already shooting for the morning show. She was just on the West Coast for a shoot on Tuesday,” a source said.
Kelly has struggled to find a fanbase at NBC, as many conservatives are angry with her for abandoning Fox News. Meanwhile, her Fox News past means she’s too conservative for a lot of liberal viewers to like, so she’s found herself in a Purgatory situation that has caused her ratings to nosedive.
