NBC's Megyn Kelly says she's 'done with politics' on debut

Megyn Kelly Turns Away from Politics and Toward Morning TV In New Launch
In the first of many references to her memoir, Settle for More, Kelly explained that "more" now means "more time with my family, more joy in my life" and promised that her audience would "know who I am by the songs that I sing". There was lots of talk about what "Megyn Kelly Today" will be, mostly by way of what it won't be.
Megyn Kelly premiered her 2nd new show on NBC Monday morning and by many accounts, it was an awkward experience.
The Post review called the show a "Bride of Frankenstein" hodgepodge of various other programs, with Kelly interviewing guests "nervously" and "awkwardly".
"The truth is, I'm kind of done with politics for now", Kelly said in a lengthy opening monologue, per Time in a blunt piece.
"It's at best questionable to introduce a show that so consciously seeks to create space between itself and serious news at a moment when there's such an abundance of it", read the writeup. It's very clear she's trying to set herself up as the next Ellen DeGeneres or Oprah Winfrey, but does anyone like Kelly as much as they like those women?
She talked vaguely about her incredible journey from one network (which she assiduously avoided naming) to NBC and how the spirit of her father, who died when she was a teenager, was somehow involved in this miraculous intervention of contracts.
It's odd to go from a program in which you interview world leaders such as Vladimir Putin - to a morning show with a cheering audience where you wave off political stories within the first few seconds.
Teasing that she wouldn't be discussing President Donald Trump's morning tweets, Kelly claimed she was "just, like, over it" where politics were concerned. Instead, her show will encourage viewers to escape from the bad world, "to laugh with us" (not one genuinely amusing thing happened in this first episode), to which Kelly added her wish that viewers will enjoy "a smile, sometimes a tear, and maybe some hope to start your day".
