Megyn Kelly 'Today' Debut Gets Mixed Reviews All Over

The segment with Liette was branded as a "Settle for More" story, the same name as Kelly's memoir released in November that detailed her upbringing and some of her time at Fox News, including an unwanted sexual advance from former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes (who denied the claims).

"You know why ... you all see it".

Megyn Kelly premiered her 2nd new show on NBC Monday morning and by many accounts, it was an awkward experience. "But how? Where? What?" she said, giving a brief overview of her career as a lawyer and TV anchor but omitted any mention of Fox News Channel, the network she left in January.

She talked vaguely about her incredible journey from one network (which she assiduously avoided naming) to NBC and how the spirit of her father, who died when she was a teenager, was somehow involved in this miraculous intervention of contracts. That show, which has brought in mediocre ratings, had a limited eight-episode run but is slated to return in the spring.

Megyn Kelly's summer attempt to create her very own "60 Minutes" was a disaster. While it's evident she'll need some time getting used to her new surroundings, the show, thankfully, is more restrained than the program that follows her, the 10 a.m. hour of "Today" hosted by the wine-sipping Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.

"Here's to the newest addition of our family, here's to many happy mornings, here's to Megyn Kelly Today", Lauer said, raising his glass. "It's everywhere, and it's gotten so dark, and I'm just like, over [it]".

Then she took questions from the audience - the first from a gushing fan: "What's been your greatest joy?" while moving from hosting a nighttime show to hosting a morning show, he wanted to know.

Kelly has pledged her show will largely steer clear of politics, although she's indicated in some interviews the subject matter isn't entirely off the table.

Of her cable news anchor days, she said it "was good, until it wasn't".

Kelly celebrated the wrap of her show's debut with a post on Twitter, which garnered mixed reactions from viewers.
