Fox’s third episode of The X-Files slipped Monday night, losing to ABC’s competing first hour of The Bachelor in both major ratings measurements.

The continuing limited-run adventures of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully had 191,225 total D-FW viewers in the 7 p.m. slot while The Bachelor drew 212,427. Among advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, The Bachelor won by a score of 79,393 viewers to The X-Files’ 66,690.

The Bachelor remained on top from 8 to 9 p.m. with 198,307 total viewers and 76,217 in the 18-to-49 age range. Fox’s second episode of Lucifer pulled in 148,730 total viewers to also finish behind CBS’ repeat of Scorpion (162,895). Among 18-to-49-year-olds, Lucifer moved up a notch to second place with 66,690.

At 9 p.m., CBS’ rerun of NCIS: Los Angeles had the most total viewers (184,142) while NBC’s second hour of The Biggest Loser won with 18-to-49-year-olds (57,163).

It also was Iowa caucuses night, with Fox News Channel the clear choice in the cable universe. FNC easily outdrew both runner-up CNN and third-place MSNBC. Its coverage peaked from 10 to 11 p.m. with 184,142 total viewers and 68,455 in the 25-to-54-year-old age range (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Here are Monday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while NBC5 ranked No. 1 among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Fox4 again had twin wins at 6 a.m. The 6 p.m. golds went to CBS11 in total viewers and the Peacock with 25-to-54-year-olds.

At 5 p.m., NBC5 had the most total viewers and TEGNA8 broke through with a 25-to-54 win.
