Meghan Kelly’s NBC Disaster
Apparently, Meghan Kelly’s NBC début has gone over like a truckload of splattered eggs. The girl is tanking in the ratings like nobody’s business. There is even a name for the phenomenon: “meghan kelly’s nbc disaster!”
OMG. Poor Meghan.
To be perfectly honest with you, before the 2016 presidential campaign when Trump said Meghan had “blood coming out of her wherever,” I did not know who she was. Obviously, as I have admitted, I live under a rock and I don’t watch television (I have never seen an episode of Game of Thrones, for example) and even if I did, I surely don’t watch Foxnews. So I did not know about this lady. Until Trump dissed her.
But it all worked out for her because it made her famous (or more famous) after he went into her underwear and extracted blood. Because she got this big contract from NBC as a result. Would she have gotten the contract even without that? Who knows? She seems like she had a good gig at FOX till she outed Roger Ailes who has since croaked. So it is not like NBC was her first big gig. But that controversy with Trump, I think, pushed her through the stratosphere. It made her a household name. And probably did factor into that $17 million pay check NBC offered her. And my understanding is that that gig with NBC meant that another NBC anchor was put to the door which ignited a Twitter rampage.
Come to find out, when I was reading a bunch of websites last night, that Meghan is not doing well at NBC. She is having an epic “Meghan Kelly NBC disaster” month. I mean, I have no idea why not as I have not seen her debut shows but apparently, outside of an interview she did with Russian president Vladimir Putin (she got over 6 million eyeballs for that) her Sunday Night With Meghan Kelly show’s debut bombed. And the network execs are basically about to throw themselves out of high rises because they are afraid that her morning show which debuts September 28(?) will likewise go over like a ton of bricks on a truckload of eggs.
You see, I am a wise woman. And they should have consulted me before signing this lady. Without knowing all the nitty gritty details of this contract between NBC and Meghan, I could have told them from the starting bloc “hold up guys, this is a stupid idea.”
How did I know this was not going to work out?
For heaven’s sakes you can just feel it. I mean…it’s about demographics and it is about the messenger herself and it is about timeslots and it is about who the heck is going to watch a FOXNEWS prime time anchor at 9:00 o’clock on NBC?
This right there is somebody having a midlife crisis and making stupid, stupid, stupid decisions. The persons involved, the lot of them, are in their forties and fifties, I bet. MIDLIFE CRISIS!!!!
Now. What is the solution?
I sure as heck am not wise enough to know.
My big question is, has Trump been tweeting about it? Is he laughing?
