The trend endures, as Americans continue to reject Megyn Kelly’s new NBC newsmagazine show. On this week’s edition of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,” the show failed to draw even 3 million viewers, setting another new low record.
Kelly’s total viewers have been in a steady decline. Her big interview with Alex Jones bombed with only 3.5 million viewers in early June, and she ended the month even lower, with 3.4 million viewers watching during her 4th broadcast. Last week, Kelly’s show hit a record low, bringing in only 3.1 million total viewers.
This week’s “Sunday Night” aired at 9 p.m., delayed two hours by NASCAR’s Brickyard 400 race Sunday. The NASCAR viewers, which numbered 5.9 million, didn’t bother to hang around for Kelly’s version of the news. She was left with only 2.71 million total viewers, according to Nielsen data.
Kelly’s show is routinely beat in total viewership by reruns of “60 Minutes” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos”, and this week was no exception. Airing at 7 p.m., “60 Minutes” pulled 7.3 million viewers, and “America’s Funniest Home Video’s” had 4.5 million.
In Kelly’s Sunday time slot of 9 p.m., she lost in ratings to ABC’s “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome,” 4.3 million total viewers, but she narrowly managed to beat ABC’s “Candy Crush,” which pulled in 2.4 million total viewers.
She also won a few viewers from the 18-49 demographic, getting a .5 rating this week. The prior two weeks, she had a .4 rating.
Kelly also held an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this year during her show’s debut, but the sneaky world leader easily owned Kelly when tackling 2016 election hacking and interference questions.
