For decades, 60 Minutes on CBS has been the reigning Sunday evening news magazine show. Now NBC, which has had its own success with Dateline on Fridays, is attempting to make a big splash on Sunday nights this summer, with its celebrated new hire. Can the Peacock use Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly to capture some of the Tiffany Network audience? Cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A news magazine show, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly features the former Fox News personality, covering what NBC calls, “The stories of our time.” Kelly will also host a still untitled NBC morning show, set to begin in the fall of 2017. The first season of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly is a limited summertime run. The new TV series is set to return, after football and the Winter Olympics, in 2018.
