NBC execs are scrambling for a fast fix on the heels of horrible ratings for ‘Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly,’ and RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that senior staff are getting cold feet over their decision to have the news anchor join the Today show in September.
With only 3.41 million tuning in to watch Sunday night as compared to the 7.21 million watching CBS’ 60 minutes and 3.92 watching a REPEAT of ABC’s Americas Funniest Home Videos, the network is freaking out.
“They are pulling their hair out at NBC. They don’t know what to do. They are talking about a huge shakeup and changing the format into more of a live NEWS show like her show at FOX,” an insider tells Radar exclusively.
And what’s more, production sources snitch — “There are voices that say they shouldn’t go forward with the plan of Kelly joining the Today Show at the 9am hour. Executives are worried that Kelly will tank the entire Today Show. Some doubt that she will ever make it to the hit morning show.”
