Megyn Kelly has had a disastrous year.
Following her spat with President Donald Trump last year, things have only gone downhill.
But this latest news might just end her entire news career for good.
Her latest show on NBC has been an absolute train wreck.
And just last week, her show Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly reached a new viewership low.
She had just 2.71 million total viewers during her show.
To put that into perspective, during a week-long vacation Kelly recently took, a year-old Dateline rerun outperformed her show that would normally run on that same time slot!
Now recent reports are confirming her show performed so badly that it is going off the air after just eight episodes.
As reported by Breitbart:
“Last week, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly set another viewership low with just 2.71 million total viewers. In the last three weeks, her show has failed to beat the years-old Dateline rerun the network ran in her show’s time slot when Kelly took a week off during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
According to the New York Post, “Kelly’s ratings-challenged Sunday show was announced as a limited” run that would return after the football season. The network was reportedly angling for at least ten episodes but apparently decided to end Kelly’s misery after eight episodes as Kelly’s downward spiral in the ratings did not stop.
An NBC spinmeister claimed that Kelly’s show was going off the air after this week’s show because she needs to be “freed up to focus” on her morning show. Translation: Kelly needs to do all she can to not ruin NBC’s crown jewel Today franchise. Network executives, who reportedly have been freaking out about Kelly’s poor ratings, are probably praying that Kelly simply does no more harm than she has already done in her short time at the network.”
I guess this proves one thing, attacking President Trump might get you hired at a liberal news station like NBC, but it sure won’t keep you employed.
This very well might be the end of Megyn Kelly’s time in the spotlight.
Television executives have reportedly stated they are unsure if her show will ever return.
They cited her numerous substantive and stylistic flaws.
But her show’s cancellation shouldn’t be surprising to anyone who pays attention.
Having your base of support consist of the constantly failing “Never Trump” movement isn’t going to get anyone very far.
Megyn Kelly went from being a respected journalist at Fox News a year ago, to currently a disastrous ‘soon to be former’ television star at NBC.
Her ratings at NBC were so bad that Breitbart claimed NBC attempted to unload her contract and get Fox News to take her back.
According to a high-ranking Fox News official, Kelly would not be welcome back at Fox News.
What do you think?
Will Megyn Kelly ever recover from her show’s cancellation?
