Report: NBC ‘Freaking Out’ Over Disastrous Megyn Kelly Ratings
(According to this) “NBC is freaking out,” a source told Radar. “They didn’t pay her $15 million for this. They are now worried that her numbers will be bad when she joins the 9 am hour of Today.”
“If Kelly tanks at 9 am she will also bring down Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at 10am,” warned the source.
In order to do damage control, producers are scrambling to land Kelly some major interviews to improve the journalist’s ratings.
“They are trying to get first interviews with Kathy Griffin,” the comedian who created a scandal when she held up a fake severed Trump head, “and the first interview with Arianna Grande,” who was performing recently in England when a suicide bomber attacked the arena, said the source.
