Sunday Final Nationals: Megyn Kelly’s Interview with Alex Jones on NBC Ranks Third in Time Slot

ABC, with its competition/game show lineup, led Sunday night in total viewers (5 million). Assisted by the final round of the “2017 U.S. Open” golf tournament, Fox won in prime time among young adults. As golfer Brooks Koepka was completing his very first major victory, the telecast peaked with 8.3 million viewers from 8:45-9:00 p.m. ET.

On the downside, though, it was the second-lowest rated (since 1981, only 2014’s 3.0 was lower), second-least watched (since 1987, only 2014’s 4.63 million was lower) U.S. Open final round on record.

Despite the hubbub concerning Megyn Kelly’s interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, NBC’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” ranked third in the 7-7:30 p.m. slot in total viewers (3.71 million, behind Fox and CBS) and in all key demos (behind Fox and ABC).
