Based on the level of hype leading up to the Megyn Kelly-Alex Jones interview Sunday night, one might assume everyone in America watched it. Not so: The interview actually got Kelly her lowest ratings yet since Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly premiered on NBC June 4, the Los Angeles Times reports. Per the Nielsen ratings, the interview averaged 3.53 million viewers—compared to 5.3 million viewers for a rerun of 60 Minutes that aired the same time on CBS and 3.7 million for America's Funniest Home Videos on ABC. When looking at just the coveted 25-to-54 age group, NBC did beat out CBS, but not ABC. (If you missed it, get caught up on the interview here.)
