Kelly made her debut as NBC morning TV host on September 25, 2017, taking over the 9 a.m. slot of "Today" and saying she wanted viewers "to have a laugh with us, a smile, sometimes a tear and maybe a little hope to start your day".
The newswoman came under fire while discussing "inappropriate and offensive costumes" on her show.
"I defended the idea saying as long as it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume it seemed okay".
"She made some mistakes and now she's suffering the consequences of those mistakes", Lemon told Chris Cuomo at the end of his show on Thursday. She did not host new episodes of Megyn Kelly Today as scheduled on Friday and Saturday. Kelly last month publicly called for NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack to appoint outside investigators to look into why the network didn't air Ronan Farrow's stories about disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein and allowed him to take the material to the New Yorker.
"She was paid too much", Stelter said.
Page Six has learned that the 9 a.m. hour for all of next week will be hosted by other "Today" talent but filmed from Kelly's studio.

The next day, Kelly apologized for what she'd said, saying, "Good morning everyone and welcome to the show".
On Wednesday, she opened her live show with a mea culpa. "I'm Megyn Kelly and I want to begin with two words - I'm sorry".
"While she apologised to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of colour around the country", said veteran NBC weatherman Al Roker, who is black.
It's unclear if Kelly will leave the network as well, as previous reports have indicated is likely. Roker remains with NBC as an occasional co-anchor on Nightly News and the daily weather anchor on Today.
Kelly's newly-hired attorney Bryan Freedman reacted to Friday's NBC announcement with a statement of his own.
"Listen, I have blackface 24/7 so it is never an issue for me. But I'm not going to be one of the ones piling on Megyn Kelly at this time".
