Alex Jones interview draws 3.5 million viewers

Unfortunately, the segment's very important message-about the dangers of giving disproportionate attention to self-aggrandizing ideologues who view making damaging claims about dead children as a form of satirical, "devil's advocate" performance art, and/or why we should do it this time-didn't make much of an impact outside of anyone's confirmation biases.

Megyn Kelly's episode featuring an interview with Alex Jones finished behind Fox, CBS and ABC in the same timeslot.

In the Hartford/New Haven media market, which serves Newtown, Connecticut, the show was preempted as an expression of sensitivity to the families of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Thanks to a strong showing by Celebrity Family Feud and Steve Harvey's Funderdome (1.4 and 1.0, respectively), ABC won the night in the 18-49 demo (1.0 rating) and viewers (4.9 million), Nielsen says. Then you would have missed Keith Morrison's freakish travelogue of New Zealand. In the interview, Jones never gave a direct answer when Kelly pressed him to admit he was wrong and continued to raise questions about the shootings.

NBC News and MSNBC Chairman Andrew Lack was quoted recently in Variety as saying Kelly's shows will take some time to catch on with viewers.

The Queen's Birthday Honours list has been published - and it only includes three names from the world of United Kingdom tech. Dick Greenwood, the former England flanker and coach, also receives an OBE for services to national and global rugby.

The interview with Jones was a "well-edited investigation", according to Matt Gertz, writing for Media Matters. Lawyers representing 12 people who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook massacre wrote to the network and asked them not to air the interview.

"I think it's horrific", his ex told Inside Edition.

As The Hill points out, Kelly departed Fox News in January to sign with NBC for a reported $17 million per year.

She then was a key figure in the downfall of former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, telling in-house investigators of inappropriate conduct by Ailes that supported Gretchen Carlson and other women who had made similar accusations. But here's the thing: "Alex Jones isn't going away", she said on "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly".
