Should NBC cancel Megyn Kelly's new show?
Since leaving Fox News, Megyn Kelly has had a rough time adjusting to her new role at NBC. She launched her first post-Fox show "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" which was canceled after only eight episodes.
The show was met with fierce opposition when Kelly made the controversial decision to interview Alex Jones, InfoWars host and conspiracy theorist, who was responsible for pushing the theory that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax—among other tasteless falsehoods.
Kelly's new show, "Megyn Kelly Today," is apparently already worrying NBC insiders, who fear she may not be able to recover from her previous television failures.
Kelly‘s show was largely panned during its first week. BuzzFeed recently published a largely negative review that noted the various contrived voices Kelly attempted during her first week—“the Valley Girl, the Whisper, the Blaccent, the Baby, the Purposely Deep to Be Funny”—and their accompanying hand gestures. The piece concluded that Megyn Kelly Today, at least in its first week, suffered from “bad producing, weak booking, and a bizarre reading of this particular moment in America.”
The first episode of Kelly's show was full of flubs, including an awkward exchange when Kelly asked Jane Fonda about plastic surgery. Kelly was also criticized for making tone def comments about "Will & Grace" among other missteps.
"I think the 'Will & Grace' thing and the gay thing is going to work out great." From @NBC worst host - Megyn Kelly. Cancel it already.
