Megyn Kelly may eventually regret leaving FOX News. She was at the top of her game there and regularly commanded outstanding ratings. Her new Sunday show? Not so much.
TV Ratings: ‘Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly’ Slips Again in Week 4
“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” continued its downward trajectory in the Sunday overnight ratings, with the new NBC newsmagazine slipping to a new low in both the key demo and total viewers. Meanwhile, Fox fell to an average of less than 1 million viewers on a rerun-dominated night.
Airing at 7 p.m., “Sunday Night” averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen data. That is down from a 0.5 and 3.6 million viewers last week’s episode, which featured Kelly’s controversial interview with InfoWars founder Alex Jones.
In the timeslot, “Sunday Night” lost out to CBS’ “60 Minutes,” which was down from its last new episode on June 11 with a 0.7 and 7.2 million viewers. ABC led the night with a rerun of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.7, 3.9 million).
NBC aired “Despicable Me” and a rerun of “Little Big Shots: Forever Young” for the rest of primetime.
That’s pretty brutal. She just can’t seem to break out with viewers in this new venture.
Sunday night ratings out. Another total disaster for Megyn Kelly in her 4th week. Third place and dropping every single week.

Megyn Kelly's show got beat in ratings by a show I haven't watched in 20 years and I thought Bob Saget still hosted it.
