The rest of the opening monologue was somewhat awkward, with Kelly introducing herself to the studio audience with personal anecdotes while the camera zoomed in for some uncomfortable close-ups and her husband showed up with a bouquet of flowers. Here you have four seasoned comedy actors (Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally), who, if nothing else, probably know how to be amusing and chatty and casual.

Megyn Kelly announced she is "done with politics for now" during the premiere of her new show "Megyn Kelly Today" on Monday.

If this show ends up being the same kind of stinker in the ratings as her last series, it's hard to say whether NBC will put up with much more of its multimillion-dollar investment. Kelly called the piece "a story that will make you say, 'Yes!"

Her new NBC program appears to be as directionless as the first.

Kelly, who is now hosting the third hour of NBC's "Today" show, said she hoped viewers would "have a laugh with us, a smile, sometimes a tear and maybe a little hope" to start the day. That show returns for a revival Thursday. Kelly said. She then explained how she saw her first interview with NBC as a sign from her dad.

"Here's to the newest addition of our family, here's to many happy mornings, here's to Megyn Kelly Today", Lauer said, raising his glass.

But John Oliver is here to remind us about the years before Kelly was trying to be a discount Oprah Winfrey, back when she was a Fox News anchor pushing the network's divisive agenda.

It remains to be seen whether Kelly will attract a big audience in the competitive morning TV landscape - especially as she goes up against ABC's Live with Kelly and Ryan, which hit a three-month high in September by averaging 3 million viewers.

The first show kicked off with the cast of "Will and Grace" plugging their series, which returns to TV on September 28, and Kelly's new co-workers from "TODAY" giving her a warm welcome with mimosas.
