Megyn Kelly's Alex Jones Interview Had Lower Ratings Than A Game Show Rerun - CATEGORY Report metro: TITLE

Megyn Kelly’s controversial interview with Alex Jones failed to rise above previous installments of Kelly’s new NBC News show in the Sunday overnight ratings.

According to Nielsen data, the new installment of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” averaged a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.5 million viewers, airing at 7 p.m. The previous two episodes of the freshman news show have averaged a 0.7 and 4.9 million viewers.

Kelly lost in the timeslot in both measures against both the U.S Golf Open Championship (1.4, 6.1 million) on Fox and a rerun of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.7, 3.7 million) on ABC. She tied with a rerun of “60 Minutes” in the demo, but the CBS news magazine topped her in total viewers with 5.3 million.

Many were critical of Kelly’s decision to interview Jones, who has stated he believes the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was a hoax, among many other conspiracy theories. Jones himself even complained publicly about the interview, claiming that Kelly misrepresented his take on Sandy Hook. He leaked the full audio of the interview on last Thursday.

NBC aired only repeats during the rest of Sunday primetime.

ABC aired a new episode of “Celebrity Family Feud” (1.4, 6.1 million) at 8 p.m., followed by “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome” (1.0, 5.1 million) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (0.9, 4.9 million).

CBS aired repeats, while Fox aired the U.S Golf Open Championship and a new episode of “American Grit” (0.6, 1.8 million).

ABC and Fox tied for first place in the demo with a 1.0, but ABC was first in total viewers with 4.9 million. Fox was third in total viewers with 3.9 million. NBC was third in the demo with a 0.6 but fourth in viewers with 2.6 million. CBS was fourth in the demo with a 0.4 but second in total viewers with 4.3 million., Site News Today\\\'s world Presenting Daily News News News Politics, Business, Sports Up Celebrity Gossip.
