There was a time for Megyn Kelly was one of the biggest names in news on the most dominant channel in news.
Both of those things have changed pretty dramatically over the past year or so.
NBC shelled out a ton of money to bring Megyn over to their network with the hopes that she could be a primetime star.
It hasn’t happened. In fact, last night’s show brought in the least amount of viewers since she started at NBC.
CBS’ “Candy Crush” game show saw large declines in both the key demo and total viewers in its second week, while “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” hit a new low in total viewers, according to Nielsen overnight data.
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 news magazine’s lowest total viewer number since it debuted at the beginning of June. Kelly also matched a series low in the key demo.
It seems pretty clear that Megyn has alienated a significant amount of viewers.
The ratings have just been terrible.
Kelly’s show lost the ratings battle with a rerun of ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ the other day.
How much longer will NBC keep this format? Clearly, something about Kelly’s show is falling flat although NBC’s credibility isn’t exactly sterling anymore so you can’t totally blame Kelly for viewers losing interest.
We will have to wait and see how this plays out but clearly, something needs to change.
