‘The X-Files’ Premiere Ratings Strong In Early Estimates

Deadline: With Fox no longer reporting fast nationals, we won’t have time zone-adjusted numbers for the premiere of The X-Files following the NFC Championship Game until tomorrow (see ratings for the game here.). The partial data available is encouraging — the 10:30-11 PM portion of the show drew a 5.1 in adults 18-49, according to the fast nationals that don’t reflect the live nature of the telecast, which aired from 10:24-11:24 PM on the East Coast but 7:24-8:24 PM in the West. With the highly rated six minutes from 10:24-10:30 PM not accounted for, the rating will likely hold despite the lower-rated 11:24 PM portion. The 5.1 demo number and a 11.1 metered household rating from 10:15-11:15 PM indicates a strong opening for the limited series sequel to the 1990s supernatural drama.
