The programming, as usual, is stale. Unlike "60 Minutes," there are no breakthrough stories.
Haven't we heard over and over about how consumers are being used and abused by the airline industry? Not soon after Dr. David Dao was dragged off the United flight, it was cool to heap hatred on all the airlines. "Sunday Night" is way late in the game to tap into that rage. Meanwhile, the legal sector has developed a new niche targeting the airlines. That, too, is old news.
And, the saga of Johnson & Johnson (J&J) baby powder's allegedly causing ovarian cancer has been covered by many niches in the media, including the legal press. Last May, J&J was ordered to pay $110 million in a Missouri court verdict. More than 2,000 other similar lawsuits are also in play. No, that story is hardly an expose. Why it became a segment on "Sunday Night" is puzzling.
In addition, Kelly just isn't cut out for this kind of "magazine newscast." Her voice lacks that theatrical quality which signals that what is presented is very important. Instead, Kelly's voice seems to be the perfect fit for the reader at story time at the public library. Its lack of urgency wouldn't scare little children.
Okay, since her first "Sunday Night," Kelly has ditched the flashing of long legs, the prom-night curls, the glam dresses and the mega watt smiles. But she still hasn't been able to acclimate herself to network television.
Many of us expect even more of a disaster on September 25th. That's when she launches her morning show "Megyn Kelly Today" at 9:00 A.M. It will be before a live audience. The UK bookmakers should be taking bets on how long "Megyn Kelly Today" will endure.
