Darn, I missed Megyn Kelly’s Trump Towers sit-down with Donald Trump. But judging from Washington Post TV critic Hank Stuever’s instant analysis, she didn’t exactly clinch an Emmy or even a Polk:
Neither groundbreaking nor especially informative, “Megyn Kelly Presents” hoped to fill the void left behind by decades of similar newsmaker-interview shows from ABC’s Barbara Walters. Perhaps someday it might, but to get there, Kelly is going to have to learn about listening, and, wherever possible, resist the urge to bring attention to herself. But I don’t think that’s really her thing.
In case readers didn’t read that far — the above was the review’s second paragraph — the headline of the piece was actually meaner: “Megyn Kelly’s awkward primetime debut was a little too focused on Megyn Kelly.” For all the talk of Kelly being all set to move on from Fox to a major slot at an unfair and unbalanced network, where Barbara Walters clearly deserves a successor, I don’t think we’ll soon be hearing any successor to Gilda Radner making fun of Barbara Wawa’s successor, Ms. Megyn Kewwy.
