Megyn Kelly's controversial interview with Alex Jones ended up a distant third in the network ratings race during its first half hour on Sunday night.

According to early Nielsen data, the first 30 minutes NBC's "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" was easily beaten by Fox's U.S. Open Golf Championship coverage and CBS's "60 Minutes," which is in summer repeats.

The second half-hour of Kelly's news magazine, after the Jones interview aired, fared even worse, finishing fourth in total viewers while tying ABC's "America's Funniest Home Videos" for third in the key 18-49 demographic networks covet most.

Kelly's interview with Jones, a conspiracy theorist and radio host, was criticized in some circles, including by families of the Sandy Hook shooting massacre that left 20 young children and six adults dead, in the days leading up to the broadcast. Jones has described the shooting as a hoax and called grieving families actors.

Sponsors including J.P. Morgan Chase pulled their ads on the program as Newtown, Conn., families implored Kelly to pull the interview.

An NBC affiliate that can be seen in Newtown did not air Kelly's program Sunday night due to backlash.

"Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" has done poorly from a ratings perspective since debuting on June 4, not finishing higher than third against its competition in total viewers.

Kelly, 46, left Fox News in January and signed with NBC for a reported $17 million per year.

Calling the victims of a massacre "actors and liars" is sure to ruin your ratings :emma:
