There is good news and bad news for Fox this morning. The good: the network won Wednesday in ratings, according to preliminary data from Nielsen. The bad: the victory came along with a dip in the numbers for “The X-Files” revival ahead of it’s (likely) series finale next week.
While Fox took home the gold in ratings, it lost in total viewers to CBS, who has seen “Survivor: Ghost Island” hold steady since its premiere three weeks ago.
Fox was first in ratings with a 1.2 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and third in total viewers with an average of 4.7 million, according to preliminary numbers.
NBC was second in ratings with a 1.1/5 and in viewers with 6 million.
