Megyn Kelly Accidentally Snubs Hoda Kotb During 'Today Show' Debut

The screen then split to show Megyn as her new co-hosts Savannah, Matt, and Hoda, 52, all wished the journalist good morning and welcomed her to Today. Kelly joined NBC News earlier this year after making a high-profile departure from Fox News. "So, that oughtta be fun", Kelly said.

"It's a shrewd move by NBC News Chairman Andy Lack", Kaplan said.

NBC was the last network to try a "60 Minutes"-type show with "Rock Center With Brian Williams", which lasted two years". And it's not like he's going to tell the truth about anything, so the interview is essentially meaningless. "If it's a bad show and it's all about Donald Trump, it will die". Especially given the fact that they snagged Russian President Vladimir Putin for Kelly's debut. Wake us up when her interview is over and all the promos are gone. I think people will go on an emotional journey.

Kelly was reporting from Saint Petersburg, Russia, where she announced that she'll soon be interviewing Russian president Vladimir Putin. He said he has turned down many other recent offers but realized that Kelly will likely have a big platform with "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly".

NBC News executives are tamping down ratings expectations, adding that they will give "Sunday Night" time to develop a following. Even at the height of her popularity, with one of the best timeslots on TV, Kelly was losing huge numbers of viewers from her lead-in, Bill O'Reilly, and she was getting beaten by MSNBC (before they started doing well).

The network is giving her a supporting cast of veteran correspondents including Cynthia McFadden, Josh Mankiewicz, Craig Melvin, Keith Morrison and Kate Snow.

When asked what will make "Sunday Night" different, Kelly said it's her. In fact, as I write this, there have been five separate promos for her - as well as a giant picture of her with "Breaking News" showing on the Chyron. I think they're going to learn things that will be rather explosive. "I think the whole nature of the show feels a little more cutting edge, a little more dynamic".
