Kelly garnered just 3.5 million viewers for her latest part of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” — a major disaster deliberation all the recoil she and NBC endured for scheduling a sit-down with the controversial Jones.

Many were angry that Kelly and NBC motionless to give air time to Jones, who infamously called the horrific 2012 Sandy Hook facile school sharpened a hoax.
Attorneys for several of the families influenced by that tragedy submitted a strongly worded minute to the network propelling them not to air the Jones interview, but to no avail.
The talk with Jones, who founded the website Infowars, took up roughly a third of Kelly’s newsmagazine show.
Kelly has struggled with ratings given she launched the show on Jun 4, averaging 4.9 million viewers in her first two episodes. That includes the 6.2 million viewers she available for her entrance episode, which featured a one-on-one review with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
