FX’s new drama Lights Out premiered to 1.5 million viewers and a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating in its initial 10pm telecast. That’s a little bit less in total viewers than the Terriers premiere (which rounded to 1.6 million) but a full tenth of a point better with adults 18-49 (and that’s not rounding: 793,000 vs. 659,000).
