Imagine yourself watching the blandest talk show possible and you've basically guessed what it is. A little bit of news, some interviewing people, and it is all as dull as a stale nilla wafer. While some people seem to just exude personality, Kelly seems to suck all the energy out of the room, doing her interviews as if she's just ticking-off a list of stuff to bring up and then move on to the next subject as awkwardly and nervously as possible.
|Tamron got screwed.|
The only thing on Monday that at least was bearable from a human-interest angle was the recorded piece about a nun who helps inner-city teenagers which of course is cliché but still sweet and heartwarming (I was pleased she got presents for being awesome when they brought her out). Even that has some uncomfortable overtones with this white lady going and helping all the poor black people though. That maybe wasn't the best thing to have in the first episode of a show for a woman who herself used countless dog-whistles to racists when talking about former President Barack Obama when she was a Fox News crony. Tuesday was basically just a big ad for, "This is Us," followed by a segment that was basically one big stroke-job on Kelly's ego where they interviewed her family and friends about awesome she is. Yeah.
Early reviews of the show are also not too kind, with The Washington Post describing it as a, "Bride of Frankenstein" which is made-up of various body-parts from other shows. The Atlantic mocked her stating how she's "Done with Politics," considering she spent years on Fox News doing nothing but politics before that ended in a ball of fire and she came to NBC because her station turned on her for not bowing-down to Donald Trump and speaking-out about being sexually harassed (the one, count em' one thing I admire about her, she didn't take shit from Trump or Fox News). Her nighttime news shows for NBC bombed tremendously so now she invades my beloved, "The Today Show," and ruins what used to be a great third hour. I give it six months, eight at most if NBC feels generous.
