It just keeps getting worse for Megyn Kelly.
Everyone knew her show was going to be awful. She’s a hard-edged lawyer and former Fox News pundit who tried to reposition herself as the friendly, neighborhood mom. It’s not working- at all. Her smiles look more like grimaces. You can almost feel the audience cringing at her awkwardness.
However, no one realized that her show was going to be this bad. She’s become so toxic that celebrities are fleeing from her. No one wants to tarnish their reputation by appearing on her show.
“I’m not booking anyone on her show,” an anonymous publicist. “I literally haven’t pitched anyone even from right out the gate. The buzz that is out there is so bad.”
Morning talk shows are dying breed. Shows that can’t pull big names have no chance of succeeding. Human interests stories can only take you so far.
“I don’t even know if it’s as much her as it is Fox News,” another publicist explained. “Because she came from Fox News, she was set up for failure because the industry is so polarized now and no one wants to touch anything associated with Trump.”
Ehh no, it’s probably Kelly. She’s TV’s human kryptonite.
