Megyn Kelly’s interview with Donald Trump brought Fox more viewers than it typically sees on Tuesday but it was no match for CBS drama “NCIS,” which dominated the time period and the evening overall with its finale to Michael Weatherly. In fact, “NCIS” outdrew the combined viewership of ABC, Fox and NBC in the night’s opening hour.
In Nielsen’s preliminary national estimates, “NCIS” averaged a 2.5 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 17.6 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour — rising from last week by 19% in the demo and picking up about 1.6 million total viewers. This was the show’s best deliveries since early January when it did a 2.7 in the demo and about 19 million total viewers during a time of peak viewing levels.
Compared with last season’s finale, “NCIS” was up a big 25% in 18-49 (2.5 vs. 2.0) and by 18% in total viewers (17.6 million vs. 14.9 million).

Former O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro appeared on Megyn Kelly’s Fox special on Tuesday night, and finally revealed what his client whispered in his ear after the verdict was read. “You had told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right,” Shapiro says Simpson told him in 1995 after he was acquitted of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Shapiro appeared on “Megyn Kelly Presents” Tuesday, which also featured interviews with presidential candidate Donald Trump, “Rocky Horror Picture Show” star Laverne Cox and Michael Douglas.

Megyn Kelly revealed the cover and title for her hotly anticipated memoir at the end of her Tuesday night primetime special, Megyn Kelly Presents, promising readers it will include details of her year with Donald Trump. She then took to Twitter after her much-hyped interview with the Gop presumptive nominee aired — the special also featured sit-downs with Michael Douglas, Laverne Cox and former O.J. Simpson defense lawyer Robert Shapiro — where the Kelly File host announced that Settle For More will publish on Nov. 15. Here is the cover of my book #SettleForMore, 11/15! Pre-order

When it comes to Megyn Kelly's sexy 2010 photo shoot for GQ, the Fox News anchor doesn't mind if Donald Trump brings it up. In January, the presidential candidate retweeted one of his supporters who called Kelly a "bimbo" for posing for the magazine in 2010, but Kelly wasn't bothered. "I wouldn't have done that photo shoot if I thought it was something to be ashamed about," Kelly, 45, tells People in this week's issue. "I was 40, and I was pregnant, I was like, 'I look pretty good.' "Trump's retweet was one of many public digs he took at Kelly after »

Apparently playing yourself isn't as simple as you might think. "I told them I could just puff out my hair a bit, but they insisted on getting me a wig," Larry King tells People of playing himself on People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. "I think they said they spent $7,500 on the wig! They also made me glasses to match the ones I wore back in the '90s and they recreated my old Larry King Live set exactly.

"Fame is fleeting," Robert Kardashian tells his kids in an early episode of FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story (it debuts tomorrow night at 10). "It's hollow. It means nothing at all without a virtuous heart." Young Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob look at their father like he's speaking some long-dead language they have no hope of understanding. Their dad is on TV, and getting priority seating at overbooked restaurants, all because he's famous — and only famous, at that, because his best friend happens to be Simpson, the world's most famous accused murderer. Of course fame means everything to these kids. The People v. O.J. — the first installment of a new FX anthology series from Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Glee), and not to be confused with ABC's similarly-titled anthology series American Crime — isn't really a Keeping Up with the Kardashians origin story. The kids only appear »
