Kelly's interview with Russian President Putin had the average of 6.2 million viewers on its debut on June 4. 

The interview became the major rating flop for the network, though it had gained huge public attention before its airing. However, it received a lot of criticisms from the viewers.

Jones, the founder of conspiracy website Infowars was in a controversy for claiming the 9/11 attack as an "inside job" and the Sandy Hook ma s sacre as a "hoax." Some of the family members of the victims in the ma s sacre wrote the letter to NBC asking not to run the interview.

One of the parents, Neil Heslin, of the 6-year-old child, Jesse Lewis who was killed appeared on Kelly's show when asked if he had anything to tell Jones said: 

I think he’s blessed to have his children to spend the day with, to speak to. I don’t have that.

CNN Media's critic Brian Lowry praised her interview with Jones and wrote:

The main test, which the segment pa s sed, was whether 'Sunday Night' articulated a tough enough case and cross-examination to demonstrate that this was a legitimate topic -- even at the risk of providing Infowars wider mainstream exposure.

Kelly will now appear on the next episode of her show with an interview with “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance and will be trying to convince her viewers.
