(National Sentinel) Media: Ever since former Fox News primetime host Megyn Kelly left for NBC News and began a new Sunday evening newsmagazine program, it’s been one ratings disaster after another for her.
Now, frustrated with her lack of ability to generate an audience, it seems as though NBC exec’s are pulling the plug on her program two episodes early, as reported by Breitbart News:
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.
The New York Post noted further, “Kelly’s ratings-challenged Sunday show was announced as a limited” run that would return after the football season.
“We hear the network was angling for around 10 episodes, but it will end with eight and an interview with Ricky Gervais,” the Post noted.
Kelly is, however, already out on the West Coast taping for her upcoming morning show that has now got a name: “Megyn Kelly Today.” It is set to air at 9 a.m. EDT daily before a live audience.
Breitbart News noted that despite what her current network says, it’s possible the Sunday program doesn’t return at all.
Update [0812 CST 1 August 2017]: She even lost out in ratings to a years-old rerun of “Dateline.”
