It has not been the easiest week for Megyn Kelly.  Her show Megyn Kelly Todayhas been widely panned by critics, and has delivered some cringeworthy moments already including an interview with the cast of Will & Grace, where she asked a fan of the show if he became gay after watching the character of Will (Debra Messing recently revealed she regretted being on the show).  Even though she has had a rough go so far, her cohost Savannah Guthrie has come to her defense, and think she is doing a great job so far!

They also brought up the uncomfortable moment when Megyn Kelly asked Jane Fonda about her plastic surgery, with both Savannah and Andy coming to Megyn’s defense.  “I’ve asked that question too!  Sometimes you ask questions in an interview, and live TV there’s awkward moments all the time.”  Andy chimed in by saying “She put it in a nice way.”
