“The X-Files” Heats Up Monday Ratings, Fuels Strong Start For “Lucifer”

Fox’s “Lucifer” premiered Monday with 7.2 million total viewers and a 2.4 rating, more than double the best performance of “Minority Report” in the same 9 p.m. time slot.

TVLine notes those numbers are also significantly better than what “Sleepy Hollow” and “The Following” pulled in last season.

However, the night belonged to “The X-Files,” which was greeted by 9.6 million total viewers and a 3.2 rating as the revival moved into its regular Monday time slot following its Sunday premiere. Those numbers are down sharply from the first episode, but the miniseries launched with help from an NFL playoff game.

Based on the DC Comics/Vertigo series, “Lucifer” stars Tom Ellis as the Lord of Hell, who’s become so bored of existence that he abdicates his throne to serve as a consultant for the Los Angeles Police Department.

New episodes air Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
