Megyn Kelly’s daytime talk show, Megyn Today, is less than a full week in, and yet has already given the world its share of questionable moments. Day one, which featured the cast of Will & Grace, showed Kelly asking a fan, “Is it true that you became a lawyer—and you became gay—because of Will?” Day three had Jane Fonda shutting down Kelly—and making an unforgettable face—when the host questioned Fonda’s plastic surgery while she was there to promote her new film, Our Souls at Night. (Fonda later told Entertainment Tonight Canada that it was “the wrong time and place to ask that question.”) Now, on day four, Kelly faces her first scheduling snafu, albeit the kind that any TV news program has faced at some point
Kelly told her Wednesday audience that she would be interviewing Edie Falco, star of the NBC series Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, which premiered the first of its eight episodes on Tuesday. But Thursday’s episode turned out to be celebrity-free. There were reports that Kelly had bailed on her interview with Falco after the now-viral chat with Fonda, but a spokesperson from NBC told Vanity Fair that the real drama isn’t as juicy.
As it turns out, the Falco interview had already been taped and was set to air next week along with Kelly’s phone interviews with Lyle Menendez. On Wednesday evening, Kelly had another last-minute call with Menendez, which the show decided to air on Thursday, pushing the Falco interview to its original air date next week. It’s a logical decision, but still not the kind you want to face in your first week after a series of bumpy, viral moments.
Kelly ended up filling her hour on Thursday with the clip of her latest interview with Menendez, interviews with a woman with chronic fatigue syndrome and World Cup winner Carli Lloyd, and “crime-fighting canine” Selma, an evidence-sniffing black Labrador that specializes in finding electronics. Things still weren’t entirely smooth, as a cameraman accidentally walked into the frame during Lloyd’s segment and whispered a very-much-audible “shit.”
The good news, though? Selma managed to find all the electronics that were hidden for her in the studio audience.
