The 10 summer television shows rated lowest by Nielsen left Megyn Kelly just five spots from TV’s very bottom, a far cry from her prime time status with a nightly talk show on Fox News, The Wrap reported.

Fox News had reportedly offered Kelly $100 million over four years to stay with the network last fall as she was jumping to NBC, The Hill reported in January, and she reportedly took less money to do a summer Sunday evening show before debuting her current morning show as a “Today” segment.

"Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" didn’t pan out for Kelly rating-wise, pulling a 0.5 in the key 18-49 age demographic, The Wrap said.

Here’s list of the 10 lowest-rated television shows, according to Nielsen, per The Wrap.

1."Doubt," CBS: The Katherine Heigl legal drama languished with a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic for the former "Grey's Anatomy" star.

2. (tie) "Still Star-Crossed," ABC: The period-piece drama that attempted to pick up after "Romeo and Juliet," could only muster a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demo.

2. (tie) "Somewhere Between," ABC: The Paula Patton-driven drama, which had a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demo, centered around a woman who believed she knew when and where her young daughter would be murdered.

2. (tie) "In an Instant," ABC: The network's third consecutive entry, which also scored a 0.4 rating, was a docudrama series driven by interviews and re-creations to tell stories of survival.

5. "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly," NBC: Kelly's show proved to be NBC's lowest rated program this summer. She has now moved on to "Megyn Kelly Today." The New York Post reported the ratings this week compared to last year for the “Today” segment Kelly occupies were down 32 percent.

6. (tie) "American Grit," Fox: The military-themed reality competition series hosted by former professional wrestling star John Cena never caught on with audiences, with a 0.6 rating.

6. (tie) "Boy Band," ABC: Another reality show that did not catch on, this one featuring a band competition that pulled a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demo.

8. (tie) "Gong Show," ABC: Not even a disguised Mike Myers as host could draw viewers to the show, which was a 1970s hit for Chuck Barris, pulling a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo.

8. (tie) "Salvation," CBS: Humans trying stop a killer asteroid from hitting Earth did not seem to interest viewers, either, also drawing an 0.7 rating.

8. (tie) "Candy Crush," CBS: The wildly popular smartphone app made for bad television ratings, as the Mario Lopez-hosted show only mustered a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo.
