Megyn Kelly's Controversial Alex Jones Interview A Ratings Bust

Megyn Kelly's much-touted interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Sunday ended up getting worse ratings than a re-run of ABC's cheesy video compilation show - placing it in a distant fourth behind Fox's timeslot-winning U.S. Open golf coverage and CBS' flagship "60 Minutes".

Jones has called the school shooting a hoax.

"Yes. Because I remember, even that day, to go back from memory, then saying, 'But then, some of it looks like it's real.' But then what do you do, when they've got the kids going in circles, in and out of the building with their hands up? I don't have that".

Nelba Márquez-Greene, whose daughter was killed in the shooting and has been openly critical of Kelly leading up to the interview, spent the evening at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven, Connecticut.

"Parents should never have to bury their own children", Jones said.

Kelly garnered just 3.5 million viewers for her latest episode of "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" - a major failure considering all the backlash she and NBC endured for scheduling a sit-down with the controversial Jones.

Ariel Helwani had been reporting since June 6 that talks about this anticipated matchup was getting closer to becoming a reality. The fight is on the main card of Daniel Cormier's rematch with the returning Jon Jones .

WVIT substituted yesterday's broadcast of "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" with a rerun of the syndicated home fix show "George to the Rescue".

Kelly, now with NBC, told A.P. she respected Sandy Hook Promise's decision to drop her from a Wednesday event in Washington, but was disappointed. In response to criticism, Kelly invited parents to participate in the segment, an offer that one father accepted.

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

Before Bill O'Reilly's "exit" from Fox News, Kelly's salary at NBC made her the 6th highest paid TV host in the nation.

Answered Kelly: "Of course, there is no evidence on the other side". Kelly wrote of her battles with Trump and Ailes in her bestselling memoir from 2016, "Settle for More". "The package's heat was sparked only by Kelly's skeptical challenges - largely sidestepped by a stammering, sweaty Jones - and cutaways to Kelly's disapproving facial expressions".
