Megyn Kelly’s Sunday night special premiered on NBC yesterday, and unfortunately for her, it didn’t go very well…
Daily Mail reported that Kelly’s show lost to a rerun of the CBS news show “60 Minutes” in terms of total viewers. Though Sunday’s episode of “60 Minutes” was a repeat, it still managed to beat out Kelly’s show by 500,000 viewers.
Ouch, that has got to hurt!
This came after Kelly found herself in hot water following an incident at her meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in St. Petersburg, Russia last Thursday. Breitbart reported that though Modi has a Twitter following of over 30 million, Kelly appeared to be stunned that he was on social media at all, saying that she assumed he wasn’t even on Twitter.
“I saw your tweet with the umbrella!” Modi said, referring to a tweet of Kelly’s about the rainy weather in Russia.
“Oh yes!” Kelly responded, apparently caught a little off guard. “Are you on Twitter?”
“Yes,” Modi replied.
Twitter users were quick to troll Kelly and let her know that she needs to get it together if she wants to stay at NBC:

It looks like Megyn Kelly is in over her head! Perhaps she never should have left Fox, after all!
