NEW YORK (AP) - Megyn Kelly interviewing Donald Trump couldn’t hold a candle to Michael Weatherly leaving “NCIS” Tuesday night.

The much-anticipated Fox special, “Megyn Kelly Presents,” whose guests included the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, attracted 4.8 million viewers, according to final Nielsen figures. Its CBS competition at that hour, the season finale of “NCIS,” drew 18.0 million viewers as Weatherly exited the cast after 13 seasons. (He will return come fall, starring in CBS’ new drama, “Bull.”)

While Kelly boosted Fox’s usual audience for that time slot, “NCIS” remained by far the night’s most-watched show.

Besides Trump, guests included Robert Shapiro, Laverne Cox and Michael Douglas for the first of what is expected to be a series of “Megyn Kelly Presents” specials with the popular host of Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File.”
