'Megyn Kelly Today' may be moved to a new time slot on NBC: Report

Could another big change be on the way for "Megyn Kelly Today" at NBC?

Page Six reports this week that executives at The Peacock Network are considering moving Megyn Kelly's hour of the "Today" show back an hour from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., with Kathie Lee and Hoda Kotb's more popular hour of the show moving up to 9 a.m. to replace it.

"It's the smart move," a NBC source told the outlet. "At the very least that limits the damage already done to Hoda and Kathie Lee -- maybe with a strong lead-in from 'Today' at 9 a.m., they'll even pick up some of the viewers they lost since Megyn went on the air."

Indeed, last year Page Six reported that Kathie Lee and Hoda's hour of the show "took a huge hit" when Kelly joined the show, controversially replacing Tamron Hall and Al Roker in the 9 a.m. hour, with viewers turning off the "Today" show when the former FOX News personality's hour started and failing to return to watch Kathie Lee and Hoda.

The potential change would also be great news for Hoda and her work schedule. Ever since replacing Matt Lauer as co-anchor of "Today" alongside Savannah Guthrie, Hoda has been on the air from 7 a.m. until 9 a.m. and then returned to the air at 10 a.m. for her hour with Kathie Lee. If NBC indeed swaps "Megyn Kelly Today" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, Hoda would avoid that empty hour in-between and work 7 a.m. through 10 a.m. instead.

To be sure, though Kelly's ratings initially resulted in a drop of over 30 percent year over year, they have been on an upward trajectory ever since she shifted to covering the #MeToo movement extensively. After a series of stumbles at during her first couple of months, Kelly has garnered praise for having victims of sexual assault onto her show for interviews.

Another source at NBC told Page Six that the time slot change is "just another 'timeless' rumor about Megyn Kelly."
