What they have is a Hillary type issue. She is unlikeable. Nobody wants to watch and they are not going to watch her. It's just not going to happen.

Fired is a time slot.

They're just not going to rehab the person who insisted to every black kid in America that Santa is white.

It's not actually. It's an absence of a time slot. A total absence of a time slot.

Fox News viewers liked her until she turned traitor on them.

Is this going to become an atheism debate?

This in a nutshell. She has typecast herself. Even if all of the abhorrent things she said as a FOX News employee were for-show, she still said them, and in a world where FOX News has constructed a translucent echo-chamber that everyone was free to listen-to, she should expect that any participants in that echo-chamber will forever be affected by what they said.

A pornographic performer would probably have better odds in a mainstream role than Kelly.

She has all the warmth of a piece of ice resting on a wind-swept glacier in the Antarctic during a blizzard. She turned on the Fox fogeys but she's off-putting to the rest of America. She looks like her nails are filed into needle points and she eats raw meat.

If it weren't for Trump being mean to her, she'd probably still be on FOX News arguing that Santa is white and pepper spray is a condiment or whatever...

This hits the nail on the head.  Political considerations aside, you need to be likeable to succeed in the morning show circuit.  By all accounts, Kelly was good at the news/opinion host format, but that doesn't require personal likeability.

I think she could have success on a more focused morning show (in the vein of Morning Joe or Fox & Friends), but the general interest format is not playing to her strengths.

She was the wrong choice for this.  She doesn't relate well to people, she doesn't allow herself to appear fallible, and she doesn't interview well because she's not actually interested in the people she's talking to.

She worked well on a format where she called on pundits to deliver prepared screeds and just let them riff with the proper amount of "hmms" and "tell me mores".  Letting Seb Gorka, Oliver North, and Rudy Giuliani take turns criticizing  Hillary Clinton is not the same as interviewing.

FTA: Sources tell Page Six that network execs are considering moving Megyn Kelly's show - which has been having a hard time attracting viewers since it debuted in September - an hour later, and bringing Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb's popular hour of the "Today" show forward by an hour to replace it.

I never thought the Kathie Lee/Hoda hour was popular. Maybe popular to mock.

She's also still saying really stupid things.

Won't Kathie Lee and Hoda be so drunk by the time the next hour rolls around that their show will mostly be incoherent ramblings and sobbing?

NBC paid for her to prove that in the absence of the FOX echo chamber she would fail. that the personalities were interchangeable, that no real actual Journalism (capital "J") was being practiced on that network.  It proved that you could replace the hosts on Fox and Friends with Gary Busey, a guy with a lisp in a Horse Head mask and a woman firing ping pong balls out of her cooter every five minutes and if the message was the same the viewers would still turn in.

This bought them proof of the counter-argument that FOX practices Journalism.

Jayzus, she's made plenty of money already.  Maybe it's better for NBC to get rid of her so she can spend more time with her children and do family shiat together, like I dunno, bring her kids to white santa at the local mall.

They liked looking at her. Now she's, what, 50? And starting to look her age, though it's readily apparent that she's had some work done. I don't think she's a stupid person, if I remember correctly she was an attorney with a degree from a very good school, but nobody who watches Fox valued her brain, she was never selling her brain, and what she was selling, ain't what it used to be. Any pretty blonde can read a script.

Nobody who needs to learn that lesson was paying the slightest bit of attention.
