Reports: Megyn Kelly’s Show Takes Ratings Dive
Megyn Kelly’s new show took another ratings hit during its second week.
Kelly’s program closed out the last week with 2.21 million total viewers, which represents a 1.8 rating overall and 0.5 in the coveted 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen, as reported by MailOnline.
That number is down from the 2.5 million viewers and 0.6 rating in the key demographic during her first week.
Kelly, however, had high numbers when she interviewed Harvey Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan.
A so-called “insider” told the Mail, “She posted her highest ratings yet in the key demo Monday after the second week on the air. Everyone knows ratings always fluctuate at the start of a new show.”
“Everyone knows that ratings fluctuate at the start of a new show, and there has been nothing but support for Megyn from all of the ‘Today’ show hosts. They have each taken her out to lunch — Kathie Lee just took her to lunch today,” another source at NBC told The New York Post.
But her overall viewers as of Monday were down 24 percent from the same week one a year ago. That’s when Al Roker, Billy Bush, and Tamron Hall hosted the show.
Kelly is slated to get $69 million over three years, according to her contract details.
