Megyn Kelly's NBC morning debut delivers mixed ratings results

If you're not watching Megyn Kelly's morning debut right now.

Megyn Kelly debuted as a talk show host Monday morning, and she made a few clumsy mistakes.

"We'll be dissecting the latest tweet from President Trump", she said, sarcastically, before insisting that politics will never be welcome in this safe space of an hour.

Another reporter compared the TV personality's attempt at having a hit NBC show to a 'HomeGoods catalog brought to life'.

What "Megyn Kelly Today" should have done, right out of the gate, was give viewers reasons to return tomorrow - and the days and weeks after that.

During the launch episode she announced that the show would avoid politics entirely (although it'll include some news coverage). "It's everywhere and it's gotten so dark and I'm over it".

Kelly then revealed that her show was awarding Turner two free tickets to a live Will & Grace taping in Los Angeles, an announcement which left the fan and the audience giddy with excitement. "Is it true that you became a lawyer - and you became gay - because of Will?"

Megyn provided Perkins with a platform to spread his anti-gay dopa on her Fox News show throughout the years, as he appeared over 30 times to speak with the anchor.

Some people in the industry are especially confused by the show because "Today's Take" with Al Roker and Tamron Hall, which Kelly's show replaced, was popular.

Kelly told the New York Times that the morning program is "the show that I was born to do".

The leftist stars of "Will & Grace" looked horrified as Megyn Kelly made a gay joke while pandering to NBC's liberal audience.

The segment with Liette was branded as a "Settle for More" story, the same name as Kelly's memoir released in November that detailed her upbringing and some of her time at Fox News, including an unwanted sexual advance from former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes (who denied the claims). While I wouldn't call her first segment - in which Winfrey convened a group of Trump and Clinton voters in order to probe America's division - particularly groundbreaking, it sought to unite by, first, diagnosing division.

"De-escalating (a situation with) someone who is 6 foot 7, that is already drunk, and you think I am getting ready to break my nails fighting him?" she said.
