  • Debra Messing regrets going on Megyn Kelly's new show

Fonda is starring in a new film, Our Souls at Night, and went on Megyn Kelly's Today show with costar Robert Redford.

We got Tomi out in NYC and asked her why she thinks Megyn's morning show is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Kelly tried to recover by praising Fonda's beauty but the actor deflected the question.

"I just want to take a moment to thank all of you so much for watching this week", she said as she signed off the Friday broadcast.

Despite the frosty reception, Kelly threw out another compliment in a bid to keep up the line of questioning, telling the star people always talk about how "amazing" she looks.

"But let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, Our Souls at Night, rather than plastic surgery", she continued.

But an exasperated Fonda cut her off by saying it was all down to "good attitude, good posture." before taking control of the interview and navigating the subject back to the new movie like a pro.

Fonda, 79, told Ellen DeGeneres that she wished her sex scene with Redford was longer. Monday's show (the only one so far for which final numbers are available) drew 2.93 million viewers, up from 2.61 million the previous week but down from the same day past year.

Near-term results expected are increased Indian investment into Afghanistan and expanded Afghan commercial ties with India. He said the insurgents mined the area around the base to prevent authorities from sending in reinforcements.

Asked whether Fonda and Redford have one more screen reunion in them, the actress said that Redford, at 81, has declared himself finished with acting after Our Souls at Night.

Kelly is going for a whole new audience and a whole new feel on NBC.

The question provoked an immediate wave of criticism, even from the cast itself: Star Debra Messing said she regretted going on the show and was "dismayed" by Kelly's comments, a remark that reportedly got Messing herself in trouble privately with the network. "Why did you say".

"Honestly I didn't know it was MK until that morning", Messing wrote.

Did the temperature just go down in the Megyn Kelly TODAY studio?

Some media critics have also been tough on the show, with The Washington Post and Variety among the outlets to run unimpressed reviews.
