    The 2020 presidential race might just be a face-off between Donald Trump and the man who plays him on TV. Alec Baldwin — who has portrayed POTUS on Saturday Night Live since 2016 — said in an interview with Howard Stern on Monday that if he ran for president, he could unseat Trump. In the interview embedded above, Baldwin and Stern’s conversation turns to the 2020 election, and Baldwin admits that he “can only think of a couple people who I think could beat Trump.” “I’ve got a name for you: Alec Baldwin,” Stern replies, prompting Baldwin to say, “If...

    Amid controversy over Uma Thurman’s near-fatal “Kill Bill” stunt, a 15-year-old interview with Quentin Tarantino went viral online Monday. The 2003 Howard Stern interview included an almost eight-minute defense of Roman Polanski by the famous director. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape. It’s not the same thing. He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world,” Tarantino told the shock jock. “You can’t throw the word ‘rape’ around. It’s like throwing the...

    Megyn Kelly reportedly 'threw an Olympic fit' when she was told Katie Couric had been offered the job of covering next month's Winter Games opening ceremony for NBC. It has been claimed Kelly - who joined the network from Fox News last year on a $23 million a year deal - had insisted that she should not be forced to cover special events as well as her usual responsibilities.
  • Embarrassment at NBC over Megyn Kelly not traveling to the Olympics

    Megyn Kelly will be staying home next month when her fellow NBC stars travel to South Korea for the Olympics — raising new questions about the standing of NBC News’ highest paid star. The Olympics is a command performance for any high-profile star or executive at the Peacock Network, which has paid nearly $1 billion to broadcast the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in the United States. While it’s unclear if Kelly made the decision to stay home herself, it’s unusual nonetheless. NBC traditionally sends its entire panoply of news stars to the games, and true to form, both the “Today” show...

    “Today” host Megyn Kelly revealed her secret to staying thin — fat shaming. “Some of us want to be shamed,” she said. “When I was in law school, I was gaining weight, I said to my stepfather, ‘If you see me going into that kitchen one more time, you say, ‘Where you going, fat ass?’ And it works!” The moment, which came during a segment on weight loss, produced awkward laughter from the crowd and Kelly’s guest “Fit Mom” Maria Kang. “My husband does that to me all the time,” said Kang. “I tell him my goals and if it’s...

    Her ratings tanking, Megyn Kelly has a new idea: Why not interview three women who claimed President Trump sexually harassed them? According to CNBC: NBC News Anchor Megyn Kelly will conduct an exclusive live sit-down interview on Monday, Dec. 11 with three women who have publicly accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, the network said. The interview with Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks will air on NBC News' "Megyn Kelly TODAY" at 9 a.m. New York time. Interesting, because the former Fox News host made her name by quarreling with Donald Trump over sexism, back when he...

    Megyn Kelly appears willing to give recently ousted "Today" host Matt Lauer a platform to discuss his sexual misconduct scandal during her hour of the NBC morning show. Kelly — who hosts the 9 a.m. hour of the program with "Megyn Kelly Today" — made it clear any of the women accusing Lauer of inappropriate behavior are welcome to tell their stories on her show. She then extended that invitation to the people who are being accused of sexual impropriety as well, without specifically naming Lauer. "As hard as it is to report on one of our own colleagues, we...

    Embattled actor George Takei has apologized for a recent interview with Howard Stern in which he joked about sexually assaulting men, after the former Star Trek star was accused last week of groping a male model in an alleged incident in 1981. In a social media post, Takei said he attempted to play the role of a “naughty gay grandpa” whilst appearing on the radio show, adding that it was a “caricature that I now regret.” “Many have raised concern over a back-and-forth between Howard Stern and myself, where we joked about me touching men during my ‘Star Trek’ days...

    NBC “Today” host Megyn Kelly used her program Monday to take on her former employer, Fox News, over the disclosure that the network signed former host Bill O’Reilly to a $25 million contract in February after he had paid $32 million to settle a sexual harassment claim. Kelly opened her show by noting how she complained to Fox News about O’Reilly, who had disparaged her publicly for writing about her own experiences with sexual harassment at Fox News in her memoir “Settle for More.” “The abuse of women, the shaming of them, the threatening, the retaliation,” Kelly said in her...

    Megyn Kelly’s slot of the “Today” show desperately needs a ratings boost after less than a month on the air. On Thursday, Hoda Kotb, the ever-upbeat popular “Today” host from another hour appeared as a guest. They chatted. They danced. They tried to get the audience on its feet dancing, too. Critics hated the moment. “I’ve never been so embarrassed,” tweeted BuzzFeed News’s Kate Aurthur. “I feel nothing but second-hand embarrassment for Megyn Kelly,” chimed in media critic Ian Miles Cheong. Vulture called the clip “22 nearly unbearable seconds.”

    Megyn Kelly is so toxic that she is reportedly dragging down NBC’s lucrative Today franchise as viewers are just tuning out NBC because of the vapid former Fox News talent.

And ‘Kathie Lee & Hoda’ is down 26 percent.” “Not only are ratings plummeting since Megyn Kelly joined the ‘Today’ franchise, but the numbers show Kelly’s lead-in has also affected Kathie Lee [Gifford] and Hoda Kotb’s show, which follows straight afterwards,” a source told the outlet....

    Megyn Kelly, NBC News’ $15 million woman, had her show bumped on Monday in the wake of the mass murders in Las Vegas — and sources say it’s a bad sign. After a rough first week, “Megyn Kelly Today” was pre-empted at the 9 a.m. hour so that Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie could continue anchoring news on the deadliest shooting in US history. “It’s baffling why they didn’t have Kelly participate in the coverage,” one network veteran said. “They seem confused.”
