In the first of many references to her memoir, Settle for More, Kelly explained that "more" now means "more time with my family, more joy in my life" and promised that her audience would "know who I am by the songs that I sing".
"I know. You know why, right?"
The Kelly who walked onstage at Rockefeller Center's Studio 6A on Monday had a friendlier and softer persona than her Fox News style, which was emphasized by cushy interviews and happy-go-lucky segments that were, unsurprisingly, more typical of a morning program than a nightly cable show.
But they also heard Kelly declare her show as politics-free, so, after she told them how much fun she had watching the old show back in the day (her day), they really didn't have much to talk about, since the revived "Will & Grace's" first episode happens to wind up in Trump's Oval Office, where Grace has been hired to redecorate.
Monday morning saw a new show hitting the AM lineup: "Megyn Kelly Today".
What did you think of Kelly's Today debut? But this new show is really something very different and I'm not sure it plays to her strengths. There was lots of talk about what "Megyn Kelly Today" will be, mostly by way of what it won't be.

McCain doesn't back GOP health care bill, drawing Trump ire
Susan Collins, R-Maine, said in a TV interview that it was "very difficult" to envision voting for the bill written by Sens. McCain was the deciding vote in July, his "no" vote scuttling a narrow Obamacare repeal bill that McConnell had offered.
Zidane desperate for Madrid to remain calm
Ceballos received a pass from Marco Asensio , fought through a tackle, and shot just inside the post for the opener. Real skipper Sergio Ramos , who had a header disallowed, missed an open goal from eight yards.
After that, Kelly welcomed the stars of NBC's "Will & Grace", which returns to the network Thursday night.
The hour crawled by.
The mission represents a marked change for the popular news anchor whose prosecutor-like style in Fox News Channel's primetime made her a star.
Kelly's new program is as odd as the first one at NBC. "It's everywhere, and it's gotten so dark, and I'm just like, over [it]".
Kelly has pledged her show will largely steer clear of politics, although she's indicated in some interviews the subject matter isn't entirely off the table.
