The premiere of “The Expanse” didn’t move the needle a whole lot for Syfy Monday. The show — which has already been renewed for a second season — debuted to a 0.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.19 million viewers, just a little ahead of the most recent numbers for the canceled “Defiance.”

Part 1 of “Childhood’s End” fared a little better with a 0.4 and 1.45 million viewers.

“Monday Night Football” once again topped the day’s rankings, although its 3.8 rating was down a full point from last week. The “Fargo” finale posted a 0.5, while the season premiere of “Love & Hip Hop” drew a 1.5. “WWE Monday Night Raw” got a post-PPV bump to a 1.3.
