In the distant No. 2 spot was ABC care of guilty pleasure “The Bachelor,” which at a still respectable 5.0/ 7 from 8-10 p.m. was 18 percent below the 6.1/ 9 one week earlier, and tired “Castle” (#2: 3.6/ 6 at 10 p.m.). Fox’s pairing of dramas “The X-Files” (#2: 4.5/ 7) and “Lucifer” (#4: 3.2/ 5) slipped by 13 percent and 11 percent, respectively, from one week earlier, which is nothing significant. And NBC could not compete with a trio of series lows for “Superstore” (#4: 2.5/ 4), “Telenovela” (#4: 1.6/ 2) and “The Biggest Loser” (1.8/ 3 from 9-11 p.m.), which needs to take a break. Chances of a second season for “Telenovela” is highly unlike;ly.

The CW capped off this third Monday in February with 8 p.m. special “Mortal Combat X: Machinima’s Chasing the Cup” (#5: 0.6/ 1) and a repeat of “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (#5: 0.5/ 1).

  1. Marc, I’d say The X-Files dropping every single week it’s been on is pretty significant. This is only a six ep miniseries. Interest is already flagging hard. These ratings are driven by nostalgia, and you know as well as me, that doesn’t last.

  2. Seems like all the networks held there own last night that wasn’t NBC with there duds. I agree time for the Biggest Loser to take a break it’s long in the tooth.
