“The X-Files” fell by about half from Sunday’s post-NFL debut, but FOX won’t be complaining about the 3.2 for its time-period debut: It’s only the second FOX show this season (“Empire” being the other) to post a 3.0 rating or higher.

The strong “X-Files” number also helped “Lucifer” premiere to a 2.4, the night’s second best numbers. “Supergirl” (1.8) held steady opposite “The X-Files,” and “The Bachelor” was up over last week, but “Superstore” and “Telenovela” each fell. CBS’ “Scorpion” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” dipped as well.

On The CW, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” returned to its usual 0.3, getting no bump from star Rachel Bloom’s recent Golden Globe win. “Jane the Virgin” drew a 0.4, in line with its season average.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 2.8/8 1.9/6 1.7/5 1.2/3 0.3/1

: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
