NBCUniversal will spend millions of dollars each year for the next few in the hopes that Megyn Kelly can succeed in areas in which she’s never been tested: daytime talk and Sunday newsmagazines.
The Comcast-owned company said Tuesday it intended to launch a new daytime program as well as a Sunday newsmagazine to showcase the famous Fox News anchor, whose profile has risen steadily since she launched a primetime program after Bill O’Reilly’s on the well-watched 21st Century Fox cable-news outlet.
The network is part of the Big Three television networks.
NBC is sometimes referred to as the "Peacock Network", in reference to its stylized peacock logo, introduced in 1956 to promote the company's innovations in early color broadcasting. Founded in 1926 by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), NBC is the oldest major broadcast network in the United States.
Jerry has an audition with the new "Elaine" (played by Elena Wohl), a method actress interested in being Elaine in every way, including insisting being called Elaine and even going as far as dating Jerry (and breaking up with him in Part 2).
The real Elaine has a problem with Monk's coffee shop, as they appear to be only hiring buxom waitresses, so she tries to get hired; when the owner turns her down, she files a report with the Equal Employment Opportunity office. NBC executive Russell Dalrymple's obsession with Elaine begins to affect his work; she tries to let him down easy by saying she can't be in a relationship with a high-powered man and would prefer to be with someone selfless, such as a member of Greenpeace.
NBC said it intends to place Kelly in a new Monday-through-Friday daytime hour set to launch sometime over the coming year.The participants — from all over the US — are of various ages and backgrounds.At the end of each hour, the audience learns whether the daters plan to see one another again.To accomplish that feat, NBC would have to either take time from the four hours it already devotes to its “Today” morning franchise, which generates hundreds of millions of dollars in ad revenue; negotiate with affiliates for strong placement of a syndicated hour; or test something in the early evening, where it distributes “Access Hollywood.” Meanwhile, a Sunday newsmagazine would likely run for a limited cycle, as the network already devotes a good portion of its Sunday lineup to “Sunday Night Football,” one of TV’s most-watched programs.A spokeswoman for NBC News declined to comment beyond the company’s announcement on Tuesday.
