Nearly 14 years after its last episode aired, “The X-Files” returns to TV. It’s going to get the biggest launchpad FOX can offer with its premiere airing after the NFC Championship game at 10 p.m. ET or so.

Ratings for the premiere should be big, with the combination of the massive lead-in and huge anticipation for the return (despite mostly bad reviews for the first episode). What will be even more interesting is how the show does in its first regularly scheduled episode on Monday. Will viewers stick with it after Sunday?

Vote in the polls below as to how you think each episode will fare in adults 18-49. Since a few factors beyond the show’s or FOX’s control — including how competitive the NFC title game is and what time it ends — there’s a wider range than usual for the Sunday poll.
