Fox’s Gotham returned from its long winter nap on Monday with 4.2 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating, up a tick from its fall finale and on par with its Season 2 average.
Versus what X-Files was doing in the time slot (because someone will ask), the Batman origin drama was down 49 and 42 percent.
With a softer lead-in, Lucifer (3.9 mil/1.3) slipped 20 percent and two tenths, to series lows.
Elsewhere in the ratings….
NBC | The Voice opened Season 10 with 13.2 million viewers and a 3.4 rating, up in audience but off a tenth in the demo from its fall premiere. Blindspot returned from its bazillion-week hiatus to 6.8 mil and a 1.8, down a few eyeballs plus a tenth in the demo to hit new series lows.
CBS | Supergirl (6.8 mil/1.4), Scorpion (9.2 mil/1.5) and NCIS: LA (7.9 mil/1.2) all ticked down, with the first two hitting series lows.
ABC | The Bachelor (8.1 mil/2.5) and Castle (5.3 mil/1.1) each dropped a handful of eyeballs while steady in the demo.
THE CW | Crazy Ex (900K/0.3) and Jane the Virgin (910K/0.3) were flat.
