NBC's Controversial SUNDAY NIGHT WITH MEGYN KELLY Outdelivers '60 Minutes'

SUNDAY NIGHT WITH MEGYN KELLY (0.5/3 in 18-49, 0.7 in 25-54, 3.5 million viewers overall from 7-8 p.m. ET) delivered bigger audiences than CBS' "60 Minutes" encore in adults 18-49 (666,000 viewers vs. 618,000, +8%) and adults 25-54 (888,000 vs. 864,000, +3%). In rating points, the two shows tied in those demos. The episode featured an interview with conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones.

An NBC newsmagazine has led a "60 Minutes" broadcast in adult 18-49 viewers in three of the last five weeks - on May 21, June 4 (the "Sunday Night" debut) and June 18.

Despite high-rated U.S. Open golf coverage this week on Fox, "Sunday Night" finishes within 0.1 of a point of last week in adults 18-49 (0.5 vs. 0.6) and adults 25-54 (0.7 vs. 0.8) and retains 98% in total viewers (3.527 million vs. 3.608 million).

An encore telecast of "American Ninja Warrior" averaged a 0.6/3 in 18-49 and 2.5 million viewers overall from 8-10 p.m. ET.

A rebroadcast of "Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge" averaged a 0.6/2 in 18-49 and 2.0 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET.
