That led into the debut of Lucifer, with 7.2 million viewers and a 2.4 rating. Consider this a very positive start. The true test will be how it performs when The X-Files concludes. 

And elsewhere around the dial:

  • On CBS, it was business as usual for Supergirl (8 million/1.8 rating), Scorpion (10.5 million/1.8 rating) and NCIS: LA (10 million/1.5 rating).
  • On The CW, it was Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (0.9 million/0.3 rating) and Jane The Virgin (1 million/0.4 rating). 
  • On NBC, Superstore (4.9 million/1.4 rating), Telenovela (3.2 million/0.9 rating) and The Biggest Loser (3.6 million/1.1 rating) all slipped. 
  • And on ABC, The Batchelor (7.7 million/2.3 rating) and The Batchelor Live (4 million/1.0 rating) ticked down.
