Hillary Clinton’s late night appearance Monday on Jimmy Kimmel Live drew very disappointing ratings, losing out to MTV’s Teen Mom and a rerun of the sitcom Friends.

Clinton was a guest on ABC’s late night talk show with host Jimmy Kimmel. She talked about Donald Trump and even proved her good bill of health by opening a jar of pickles.

Clinton’s guest spot received low ratings, however, the Hill reported Wednesday.

The Democratic presidential nominee’s Monday night appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" registered just a 0.4 rating in the key 18-49 demographic advertisers covet most.

In comparison, NBC’s "Late Night" with Seth Meyers tied it in the ratings, despite starting an hour later. Monday’s "Late Night" guests were Henry Winkler of "Happy Days" fame and actress Grace Gummer."

Clinton’s late night appearance was beaten out by Teen Mom Season 6 on MTV and Nick at Nite’s rerun of the hit TV show Friends, which went off the air a decade ago.

Donald Trump appeared as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live in May and received a 0.6 rating, beating out Clinton by 33%.
