Tanking talking head Megyn Kelly‘s ratings are atrocious and Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb‘s Today Show has taken a huge hit as a result, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Kelly’s ratings are “so bad” she is “having a terrible knock-on effect” for Gifford and Hoda’s fourth hour, a behind-the-scenes insider tells Radar.
Hoda, 53, and Gifford, 64, are down 8 percent since the former Fox News host became the lead-in for NBC‘s third hour with Megyn Kelly Today, “and the ladies are furious,” spills the snitch.
While both hosts are presumably peeved, Hoda is taking the high road while KLG has whipped out the cat claws. “Hoda is being a team player and a political animal to survive all the internal politics of The Today Show,” the on-set mole dishes. “But Kathie Lee is having none of it.”
The informant reveals Gifford is “livid” Kelly’s ratings disaster is negatively effecting her prized position at the network, and has a message for the execs in charge of hiring her: “I told you so!”
