Cancellation Watch: X-Files and Lucifer Still Looking Good, Mid-Season Brings Shake-ups to the Broadcast Net Scorecard

x-files-revivalRatings News of Note: On Monday, FOX’s X-Files revival slipped again, though the 2.7 overnight rating it pulled still counts as a huge win this season and I’m thinking the network will be trying to keep this revival going into next year.  That show’s lead-out series Lucifer also dropped, but its 2.0 score still looks like it could and could easily win it a second season. The key will be to see how that one performs with lower rated Gotham as its lead-in starting at the end of the month.  Over on CBS, Supergirl slipped to a 1.5 rating, its lowest numbers since last December.  That one needs to stay higher in the ratings because its network is not known for having patience with what it considers under-performing shows, especially genre entries.  Also on Monday, Syfys’s The Magicians slipped to a 0.35 rating, but those are still decent numbers for that network these days.  On Tuesday, Agent Carter slipped to a 0.8 rating based on the overnights which makes that show’s fate continue to look grim.  I look more closely at how things could play out for that one and Agents of SHIELD at this link.  On Thursday, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow slipped to a 0.9 rating which is not a good thing for such an expensive show.  I don’t think it is in danger at the moment, but it can’t drop much further (though there is a rumor that the network will go a different direction anyway with the DC team-up concept next season because LoT costs so much).  Read the full article at our partner site CancelledSciFi.com.
