Tom Brokaw has become the latest media star to be accused of sexual harassment by a former coworker. Linda Vester, a junior colleague of the TV journalist in the 1990s, alleged to both Variety and the Washington Post on Thursday that the then-NBC Nightly News host sexually harassed her multiple times.
Once again, NBC is coming to terms with the idea that maybe they shouldn’t have spent all that money to bring on Megyn Kelly. Once again, Megyn Kelly Today has lost even more viewers, and once again, while consultants and anyone with eyes can see that the show was a grave misstep, Kelly and her team are feebly…
Because we’ve been talking so much lately about Sinclair Broadcast Group meddling in the news programming of stations that it owns, it’s important to point out that Sinclair isn’t alone. Other corporations do this, too, to some extent.
Can you believe it’s already been half a year since the debut of Megyn Kelly Today? I mean, sure?
Here’s an example of doing entirely too much to bend yourself into the posture of BOTH an Objective Journalist and a Good Parent: Meet the Press host Chuck Todd’s response to President Trump calling him a “sleeping son of a bitch” at a campaign rally on Saturday night.
Megyn Kelly has spent the two days following the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida sending strongly-worded messages to politicians about guns.
If you live in America and have been paying attention to the 2018 Olympics at all, you have no doubt heard the name of the host city “Pyeongchang” repeated endlessly. And by repeated, I mean purposefully mispronounced by NBC.
Megyn Kelly, of Megyn Kelly Today, has been in the news recently for the truly wild attack she leveled at Jane Fonda. In case you missed it, Fonda took a mild jab at Kelly for haranguing her about her face lift and Kelly responded by virtually foaming at the mouth about how Fonda was a traitor to America.
On Tuesday, reporters continued to ask White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to defend Donald Trump’s “shithole” comments, and their implicit racism.
This March will see the debut of NBC’s Rise. It’s a musical drama about a high school teacher in a largely blue-collar town who revitalizes the school’s theater program, puts on a production of Spring Awakening, and inspires the whole town or something.

It’s been almost two weeks since Matt Lauer’s abrupt firing from NBC’s Today show over sexual misconduct. Yet despite being one of America’s most familiar faces and beloved hosts for 20 years, it looks like Lauer’s departure hasn’t hurt Today’s ratings. In fact, Today has become the most-watched newscast for the…
Between the political chaos, the various attacks on America’s most vulnerable, and the borderline vaudevillian antics coming out of the current administration, the array of white men who dominate late night network programming have been given material of an absurd and terrifying urgency that is bound to draw viewers.…
In what I am interpreting as an attempt to redeem themselves after rebooting Will & Grace (which itself put a damper on the high that is This Is Us), NBC is reportedly working with Sleepy Hollow show-runner Albert Kim on a drama about a powerful Korean business family’s dealings in America. Hi hello, I am ready.
Megyn Kelly’s big, terrible NBC morning show has been on for just three days, but she’s already succeeded in establishing a fun new brand for herself. Unfortunately for her, that brand consists of Kelly asking such terrible and offensive questions that she makes her celebrity guests react with undisguised loathing.
After the first episode of Megyn Kelly Today, it’s still hard to tell what NBC’s new morning show is supposed to be. But less than a minute into Kelly’s debut this morning, she made clear what the program is not: “The truth is, I am kinda done with politics for now. You know why. We all feel it. It’s everywhere.”
Remember Megyn Kelly?
