"That's all for tonight, and for the summer run of this program," said Kelly to close the show on Sunday night.
"But soon, I'll be seeing you in the mornings! I'll be on at 9 a.m., right after Matt and Savannah — on our new show, ‘Megyn Kelly Today,’ starting on September 25th," she added. "And I'll be back right here Sunday nights in the spring. We are so grateful to you for watching. I'm Megyn Kelly. For all of us here at NBC News … goodnight.”
"Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" delivered 6.2 million viewers with its debut on June 4 featuring an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Viewership dropped to 3.51 million viewers last night, which was the show's best total audience since a June 18 episode with controversial conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
The network had announced before Kelly's Sunday program debuted in early June that it would be go off the air until the spring to make way for the top-rated "Sunday Night Football" after Labor Day.
Kelly's newsmagazine is slated to return after the NFL season and NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics.
