Megyn Kelly’s Sunday night newsmagazine show’s ratings dropped for a fourth consecutive week since debuting earlier this month on NBC, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The latest episode of “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” averaged 3.4 million viewers and an 0.4 rating in the key 18- to 49-year-old demographic that advertisers covet most. 

Those numbers are down from a 0.5 demographic rating and 3.6 million viewers a week earlier for Kelly’s controversial interview with InfoWars founder and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

{mosads}Kelly’s June 4 debut on NBC, which featured an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, averaged 6.2 million viewers and an 0.8 rating in the demographic. 

Overall, Kelly’s week 4 came third behind a repeat of CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which delivered 7.1 million viewers and an 0.7 demographic rating, and a repeat of ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” which brought in 3.9 million viewers and a 0.7 demographic rating. 

The former attorney-turned-cable-news-star left Fox in January after 13 years at the channel for a reported $17 million per year at NBC.

Fox had offered a reported $25 million annually. 

Kelly will debut a second program on NBC in the fall starting at 9 a.m. ET.
