HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The publicity and uproar in the days before Sunday's broadcast of Megyn Kelly's interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones didn't translate into ratings. Megyn Kelly tied 60 Minutes in the demo, though the latter CBS show outranked the NBC show in viewers (5.3 million versus 3.5 million).
With all the added attention, though, the broadcast of "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" still couldn't beat an old episode of "America's Funniest Home Videos" in the 18-49 demographic.
Kelly drew 6.2 million viewers to her interview of Vladimir Putin during her show's June 4 debut. It now has 6.1 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.
Publications like Politico gave Kelly a glowing review for exposing the Infowars host, while others criticized her for not breaking any new information that isn't already on his Wikipedia page.

Hours before his NBC interview aired, Jones offered his "sincere condolences" in a video message, saying "parents should never have to bury their own children".
That has included not just Sandy Hook, Kelly noted, but also baseless allegations regarding "Pizzagate" and Chobani yogurt. The local NBCaffiliate in CT that serves the area where the shooting took place refused to air the interview. The station's General Manager Susan Tully explained the decision in an internal memo, and cited Jones' abhorrent statements about the deadly elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT in 2012. Although his theory has been discredited, people who believe Jones have harassed and taunted families of the victims.
Jones has claimed 9/11 was an inside job, perpetrated the debunked Pizzagate story - though he has since apologized for doing so - and has enraged parents of the children murdered in the Sandy Hook massacre by calling it a hoax. Hockley's 6-year-old son Dylan, and Barden's 7-year-old son Daniel were among those killed in the mass shooting. The controversy escalated after Jones leaked a portion of a phone conversation with Kelly to his InfoWars website ahead of Sunday's broadest.
