Alex Jones interview draws 3.5 million viewers

Kelly presses 'Infowars' host Jones on Sandy Hook denial

The Hollywood Reporter's 25th Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Los Angeles

Those numbers were practically even with last week's episode, in which Kelly interviewed Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews, and down sharply from her June 4 debut episode, which featured an interview with Russian president Vladimir Puttin and drew 6.1 million viewers.

Early Nielsen Media Research data indicates "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" netted an average of 3.5 million viewers, the Hill reported. Kelly was to be the host of a gala to benefit the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, but was uninvited after news of the segment began to spread.

The interview prompted indignation, especially in CT, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in 2012. While some might point to the criticism Kelly endured as the reason so many viewers opted to stay away, or suggest it speaks to a general, alt-right ranting fatigue shared by most people who don't spend every waking minute trading Pizzagate memes under their American flag emoji-ed Twitter handles, truth warriors know this is a laughably naïve interpretation. Then you would have missed Keith Morrison's freaky travelogue of New Zealand. NBC said the interview wouldn't give Jones an unfettered platform to express his controversial views.

I am writing regarding the decision of NBC Connecticut not to air the Megyn Kelly/Alex Jones interview [June 17, Page 1, "NBC Station Won't Air Kelly Show"]. With a file from the Associated Press. Money reports that while Kelly's interview with the "Infowars" host garnered its fair share of headlines, the actual broadcast flopped with advertisers' most-prized demo group.

Lawyers who represent 12 people who lost loved ones at Sandy Hook urged NBC News officials not to air the interview.

Maybe the ratings were hurt by the pre-airing publicity, maybe Jones' audio leak of the interview had an effect.
