    Just curious. Does anyone else think Megyn Kelly will be happy to jump from being the highest profile host/anchor on FOX News to being a panelist and daytime talk-show host on NBC UNLESS she has an agreement in her contract to be the next anchor of NBC Nightly News as soon as Lester Holt steps aside?

    I can't see her settling for what was mentioned in the Twitter link on a long-term basis.

    I wonder if she'll still be on FNC until June or will she have to sit the next few months out due to non-compete?

    Hmmm.... where will her show fit in on the NBC O&Os.
    7-11am: TODAY
    11am-12noon: Local News
    12noon-1pm: DOOL or AHL
    1pm-2pm: AHL or DOOL
    2pm: Steve Harvey
    3pm: Ellen
    4pm: Local News

    Will AHL or DOOL get the boot?

    I wonder if this new daytime show will be more a la The View or more like Kelly File but on network tv? Also, it doesn't mention her daytime show being syndicated, so i'm assuming one of NBC's daytime shows will get the boot.

    And, could we see Megyn become Lester's primary fill-in?

    Gotta suck to be Brian Williams at this point, I'd think. If he had any hope that his "long road to redemption" would take him back to the network at any point in the future, I think those dreams were just dashed.

    I was thinking she might replace Today's Take...

    I'm kind of skeptical about an afternoon news/talk show. It didn't go too well for Katie Couric or Meredith Viera.

    I see her replacing the third hour too. Plus I'd like her new Sunday program to be something similar to on assignment. It would be a great permanent addition.

    I think NBC just found their replacement for Today's Take. They can simply cut Take and move Hoda & Kathie Lee into the Today's third hour and place Kelly's new show after Today.

    Why would "Today's Take" be cancelled instead of Days of out Lives instead?

    Seriously, I would say he himself pretty much knew that he had no future at NBC. Compared to others who have been dismissed by a network for less horrendous things, he is lucky that he has friends in high places that would offer a cable news network gig.

    One: Soap fans will hate Megan Kelly/NBC

    Two: daytime needs variety, would NBC seriously consider an all-talk lineup?

    Three: we all know that Take has no clear identity with the host shuffling.

    Days of Our Lives was renewed earlier this year so I don't think it's going anywhere... Today's Take has been basically dead since the Billy Bush thing happened... I can see them move KLG and Hoda to 9am and put Megyn Kelly's show either right after or sometime later in the day.

    Maybe they'll move Days to the timeslot after Today and have Megan's show lead into Steve and Ellen...

    If only they'd revive Concentration- someone at NBC seems to have a grudge against it, as they not only cancelled it in 1993 instead of bringing it back to first-run in an hour-long format, they haven't licensed out the Narz or Trebek reruns to GSN or Buzzr. (Apparently there were rumors of a revival around 2000, but Jeff Zucker allegedly decided to go with the third hour of Today.)

    Her last show is Friday.. call me crazy but Jesse Watters said in New Year's Eve we'd be seeing "much more of him".. I wonder if he'll get the 9:00 slot?

    NBC Daytime? Probably not. MSNBC Daytime? More likely, yes. Idk why you guys are speculating about where to put her on NBC when clearly she's going to MSNBC and maybe to fill the 2:00pm hour that Thomas Roberts left behind.

    It may be just me thinking but there's no way they'll put her on NBC at all. Affiliates love Steve Harvey and Ellen and they aren't going anywhere.
