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.

    What could Katie say. This is giving to much power to one person and I am sure now that one has come out there will be numerous more. The one that reported Matt was scared and tthat is why she waited along time and then got herself an attorney. Many know Mattt has been a cheater for years and his wife knew as well as they were going to get a divorce regarding his cheating. I think Matt has gotten away for years with harassment, sexual abuse, pinching on the ass is inappropriate in the work place, and much much more. However I am betting with the devastation people feel over the loss of Matt he harassed those who did not even realize they were harassed by being nice. Even his ex wife came to his defense. Of course his present wife stayed after knowing about affairs cuz Matt is gorgeous, rich, funny, talented, sexy and very powerful. However workplace harassment of any kind is inappropriate but it is going on at most places. Sexual harassment is happening but lonely women take it as a compliment. Kind of shocked about Kathie lee Gifford begging for matts forgiveness. First it is up to the victims to forgive in time. It is one thing to forgive but he does not deserve his job back cuz I am sure we will see a minimum of ten others come forward. Matt is a seriel cheater so nothing sexual would surprise me.

    I already quit watching her portion of the Today Show. MK is so boring and dull. I just hope they do not put her in Matt’s old position…….I will watch CBS or ABC news for sure! NBC don’t do it!!!!

    Please don’t confuse sexual harassment with rape.

      I didn’t mention it specifically in the article, but Lauer was accused of sexual assault.

      “One complaint came from a former employee who said Mr. Lauer had summoned her to his office in 2001, locked the door and sexually assaulted her. She provided her account to The New York Times but declined to let her name be used.

      She told The Times that she passed out and had to be taken to a nurse. She said that she felt helpless because she didn’t want to lose her job, and that she didn’t report the encounter at the time because she felt ashamed.”

    Matt’s actions (if true) seems worse than Billy’s inappropriate words. I know that both are over the line. Seems arrogant to say he won’t, Mount a Billy Bush style campaign. Still feel above everyone else, Matt. You look a little Trumpish!
