Megyn Kelly’s interview with “InfoWars” host Alex Jones didn’t quite make par last night. Despite Fox airing the final round of its U.S. Open Championship, ABC actually finished atop Sunday primetime’s leaderboard with its game show lineup.
Fox was a close second among the key 18-49 demographic, though CBS was runner-up in total viewers. Neither gets a trophy.
NBC finished third in the key demo, and fourth in terms of overall eyeballs. Kelly’s 7 p.m. newsmagazine show managed just a 0.5 rating/3 share and 3.5 million total viewers.
That’s down from the previous week, when “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” averaged 3.6 million viewers in its second outing — which was a 42 percent drop from her June 4 debut, according to TVNewser.
ABC was first in ratings with a 1.0/5 in the advertiser-coveted demo and in total viewers with an average of 4.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. Following a rerun, “Celebrity Family Feud” at 8 earned a 1.4/6 and 6.1 million viewers. At 9, “Funderdome” posted a 1.0/4 and 5.1 million viewers. “The $100,000 Pyramid” at 10 landed a 0.9/4 and 4.9 million viewers.
Fox was second in ratings with a 0.9/4 and third in viewers with 3.8 million — due to the nature of live sports, however, the Open Championship host network’s numbers are subject to adjustment. After the golf, “American Grit” at 8:30 averaged a 0.6/2 and 1.9 million viewers. A repeat followed.
NBC was third in ratings with a 0.6/3 and fourth in viewers with 2.6 million. Reruns ran after “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly.”
CBS and Univision tied for fourth in ratings, both with a 0.4/2. CBS was second in total viewers with 4.3 million, airing just repeats; Univision was fifth with 1.1 million.
Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 668,000.
