Normally, I'd make some sophomoric comment about how Megyn Kelly should dance nude for ratings.
Honestly though, she's just awful. I had a day off last week and turned on her show to see it for myself. I cringed almost immediately. She has zero ability to connect with people. Watching her try to interact with guests and the crowd is painful. This format isn't her shtick. The executive that thought Megyn Kelly would succeed in daytime television needs to be fired immediately.
I'm sure she's very personable in her private life when she's kibitzing with her rich conservative buddies. She needs to stay in that world.

Watching her implode has been a joy. She is a wretched human being who deserves contempt and scorn, but I'll settle for getting canceled and fired. Enjoy local newscasts, dear.
 
2017-10-20 08:45:14 AM  
As she has used her looks to get her career going all her life, this should surprise no one.

Hopefully this ends MSNBC's asinine desire to become Fox lite by hiring FN's cast offs.

We already have one boring show with a bad-dancing host trying to compensate for lack of talent or interest.  We don't need another.

Ellen is a non-threatening blonde lesbian.

Megyn Kelly is a...  she's a...  um, I'm not sure what she is.

Who knew that some dim-witted racist a$$hole couldn't make it on something other than Fox News?
I realize that there are several dim-witted a$$holes on other outlets, but they generally keep their racism to themselves unless they are about to go off the air.

Well....let's see.  She's gay and has been open about it.  So...well, she's gay, nope said that.  Hell if I know.  I've seen some of her show (it's usually on in the doc's waiting room) it's daytime tv with over exuberant hosts and audience.  Other than that I'm not sure what the problem is.

She's an asshole. Simple.

Being an asshole works on Fox, as that's their whole shtick. They're the network for people who want to act like assholes but lie and say they're not. Being an asshole is a prerequisite over there, and something to be overcome everywhere else.

Yeah, I don't particularly find her entertaining but I can just choose not to watch her show (and I don't).  And, unlike other people hosting talk shows, I don't think that she offensive at all.

Didn't she try evenings first and that tanked too?

I hate her because she's married to Portia De Rossi.  Damn you Ellen!  Why do you have to tear down everything good in my life!?!  Between you and Prince F'ing Harry you both have everything and you have to take Portia and Meghan?  To Hell with the both of you.

Have y'all already forgotten that the right turned their back on her when she dissed Trump? Kelly thought she was a star because of the quick accolades she got from the left and the never-Trumpers. Burned out pretty quickly, like most of them.

I insist, she wasn't just a talking head at Fox News, she was running the show (Ailes was too busy chasing skirts to actually work on something).  When Murdoch's sons took over, it was get out or be pushed out.

She was probably a good manager, if you like draconian managers, but she was never good on TV.

She needs to do at least three long hits of tequila before going near a camera.

When does Meg Kelly tell us what pets will be available for adoption this week?
 
2017-10-20 11:27:54 AM  
Thoughts going through Megyn's head as this happened:

"This is what fun looks like.  I'm a fun person, really.  So fun."

"At Fox there was only an audience of one when I did this, and why am I suddenly thinking of hamburgers?"

"Just what IS Hoda anyway?  Suspiciously brown, would not make a convincing Santa."

White and religious; don't understand why Fox News didn't keep her.

Oh wait, Tammy Lauren had fewer crow's feet and was cheaper, that's right .

I don't know if it is inherent to her character, but that's certainly her reputation. Which makes putting her in the "cute and frothy" a.m. tv gig a hugely-misguided idea. She's no Katie Couric or Kathie Lee. She's even a few degrees icier than Jane Pauley.

If NBC can make use of her, it is as an attack dog. Give her a "60 Minutes"-style investigative journalism-type show where he job is to rip into various nefarious types. Put her on a beat that emphasizes her fight for the "common people": exposing government corruption, civil asset forfeiture abuses, fraud, labor exploitation, etc. Shore up her journalism bona fides until you can get away from the stupid shiat she used to say at Fox, and rehabilitate her image from "scornful ice princess" to "champion of the underdog." Only *then* can you start to think about putting her in a role where the public's affection for you is the end-all, be-all of the job.
