Megyn Kelly and Sa­van­nah Guthrie get into a nasty fight as the ten­sion be­tween them es­ca­lates.

Lights, cam­era, ten­sion! Megyn Kelly and Sa­van­nah Guthrie got into a huge fight dur­ing their eight-hour cov­er­age of Brett Ka­vanaugh’s Supreme Court con­fir­ma­tion hear­ing with the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee on Sept. 27. “As the day went on, Sa­van­nah and Megyn got nas­tier and nas­tier, mak­ing lit­tle digs at each other,” an in­dus­try in­sider tells Life & Style. “When the live broad­cast ended, the two of them ex­ploded — ac­cus­ing each other of talk­ing over one an­other and in­ter­rupt­ing!” Though an­other source de­nies there’s a rift, for­mer Fox News su­per­star Megyn, 47, has strug­gled to make friends at NBC, where she’s the high­est-paid an- chor, rak­ing in a re­ported $ 23 mil­lion a year. But “Sa­van­nah is the queen of NBC,” notes the in­sider. “And any­one who chal­lenges her will not win.” Megyn’s tank­ing TV rat­ings on To­day’s third hour aren’t ex­actly help­ing. With ri­val shows Live With Kelly and Ryan con­sis­tently beat­ing Megyn Kelly To­day in view­er­ship, NBC has had to add more pop­u­lar per­son­al­i­ties like Sa­van­nah, 46, and co-host Hoda Kotb to the morn­ing pro­gram to help Megyn — who was voted least-liked TV me­dia per­son­al­ity in a re­cent study — bring in a big­ger au­di­ence. “She’s been a to­tal dis­as­ter,” adds the in­sider, “and higher-ups at NBC are al­ready try­ing to come up with a way to fi­nally get rid of her.”

To­day an­chors Sa­van­nah and Megyn “un­loaded on each other once the cam­eras stopped rolling,” a source tells Life & Style, not­ing that each an­chor wishes the other were gone.
