Megyn Kelly's show on NBC fell to its lowest in viewer ratings and total viewers on Sunday, Variety reports.

"Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly," which airs at 7 p.m., drew a 0.4 rating among adults aged 18 to 49 and pulled in only 3.1 million viewers, its worst overall viewership in the show's short time on the air. The show drew 6.1 million viewers in its debut on June 4 when Kelly interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Kelly was hired by NBC this year for a reported $17.5 million annual salary after a highly-rated run at Fox News Channel. She is debuting a new morning show in September before a live studio audience but so far, her start at the network hasn't made quite the splash NBC had anticipated.

"By all measures, her 'Sunday Night' effort has been a disaster," Variety TV critic Sonia Saraiya wrote in late June. "Her interviews have been either ridiculed or loathed by the rest of the press, and the ratings reflect a distinct lack of interest."

Kelly has had some high-profile controversies over the last month, including backlash after Infowars host Alex Jones released recordings of a pre-interview between Kelly and him where Kelly told Jones the segment wouldn't be a "gotcha hit piece."
