Megyn Kelly Wants Matt Lauer’s Job So She Can Destroy ‘Today’ Show’s Ratings

Matt Lauer’s propensity for gifting dildos and showing his penis to unwanted recipients got him 86’d from the Today show. For a day afterwards, co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb cried a bunch of crocodile tears. Boo-hoo, the penis man is gone.

You know it wouldn’t take long before everyone’s ambitions took over.

Today host Megyn Kelly wants a shot at Lauer’s anchor desk. According to Page Six, “Megyn Kelly is now gunning for Matt Lauer’s job with the top “Today” host out.” They don’t give much more information than that. It makes sense though. Why wouldn’t Megyn Kelly, who hosts the 9 a.m. portion of Today, try to get his spot? NBC could put the threesome of Kelly, Guthrie and Kotb center stage in the mornings.

If only Megyn Kelly wasn’t ratings cancer.

Her portion of the Today show has bombed. Ratings are at an all-time low. She’s had to go on MSNBC to pimp her show. Evidently, that’s quite shameful to do.

Meanwhile at FOX, Sean Hannity took over her timeslot and has been beating her ratings from when she hosted.

Nearly a year after Kelly left Fox for the greener pastures of NBC News — she’s now making $20+ million while working on broadcast TV — Hannity mans the coveted 9 PM hour, having been moved there recently in a lineup shift to juice ratings.

And not only has the move worked — Hannity is now the top-rated program on cable news — but he is outdrawing Kelly’s ratings from last year, even though Kelly was then the beneficiary of an insane election cycle and a lead-in from The O’Reilly Factor, which was at that time the top dog in all of cable news.

She even sucks so bad that NBC decided to send her to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. It’s an assignment no one wanted because A) South Korea’s cold as hell and B) Kim Jong Un might fire a rocket into the face of any American reporters nearby. It’s like NBC producers want to put her somewhere they can’t see her and not be reminded of their $20 million per year mistake.

The only worse decision than filling Matt Lauer’s spot with Megyn Kelly is filling it with Charlie Rose. And even that’s only a little bit worse.
