Megyn Kelly shown with Alex Jones after shooting pornographic videos in the Infowars studio.
Megyn Kelly’s new NBC show is a disaster. Her recent show featuring an interview with Alex Jones netted terrible ratings. It was beaten by a 60 minutes repeat and America’s Funniest Home Videos!
Megyn Kelly’s interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was the talk of the TV industry last week, but based on the Nielsen ratings, viewers did not care.
“Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” averaged 3.53 million viewers in its Sunday 7 p.m. time slot, the lowest figure yet since the program premiered on NBC on June 4.
Kelly’s program was swamped by a rerun of “60 Minutes” on CBS, which averaged 5.3 million viewers in the hour. In the 25-to-54 age group that advertisers seek on the shows, NBC edged out CBS, with 888,000 viewers to CBS’ 864,000.
ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos” had 3.7 million viewers, and in the 25-to-54 demographic finished ahead of both news programs.
NBC News took considerable heat for the Jones interview, which Kelly had vigorously pursued.
Jones exposed Kelly as a liar by recording and releasing their pre-interview conversations before the show aired. She falsely stated that she wasn’t doing a hit piece even though the final product was meant to give the viewer a negative impression about Jones. Kelly’s crew recorded hours of footage but they only released short edited snippets to fit their anti-Jones narrative.
Look, there’s plenty to criticize Jones on but Kelly’s piece was not objective journalism. It shows what a clown show the the media has become. These big media companies operate as if we are still living in the pre-Internet era. They’re in denial about how much credibility they’ve lost.
I would hate to see what she looks like without all that makeup piled on her face!
Perhaps the most retarded part about the piece is Kelly’s criticism of Jones for talking about conspiracy theories. She does this at the same time that NBC and other fake news outlets have been promoting the insane conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is secretly working for the Russians. It doesn’t matter to them that there has not been a single piece of evidence proving this. At least Jones provides some type of factual basis for his theories. The criticism reeks of hypocrisy either way.
Our society has some real problems when a used up middle aged slut like Kelly can make millions of dollars a year for producing gibberish like this. Her new show is already a failure. Not even airing random sex tapes of herself would fix things.
NBC should immediately fire her and give me the time slot. I’d work for a small fraction of what they’re paying Kelly and I would net them much better ratings!
