Say goodbye, Megyn.
Our secret Scissorhead at NBC says that she is out. It’s unclear from our chat in the bat cave if she is fired or if it is just her show that is cancelled, but there’s gossip of a $69M Amero parachute in the Twitterverse, so nice work if you can get it.
We long said this: Kelly was not hired to lure away Fox News viewers (if that were the case, they would have put her on in her FNC time slot); she was taken away from Fox in the hopes that the dirty old men of Possum Hollar would shut off the TeeVee if she wasn’t on.
In the ratings game it isn’t always about improving your own number of viewers, it can also be about diminishing their number of viewers. If the $69M is true, it seems hardly worth it?
PS – in all fairness to this Scissorhead—and in case his/her bosses are reading this, I was pointed to an article in a UK publication with the details.
