Fox’s The Resident made its regular time slot debut on Monday night with 4.7 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating — on par in the demo with predecessor The Gifted‘s freshman average (3.3 mil/1.0).
The Resident was expectedly down — 46 and 62 percent — from Sunday night’s special post-NFC Championship showcase, which is akin to the slide CBS’ Hunted suffered last year in the same situation but marks a steeper drop than Fox’s own The X-Files experienced two years ago (down 40 and 48 percent).
Opening Fox’s night, Lucifer (3.8 mil/0.9) delivered a best-since-season premiere audience while rising two tenths in the demo.
NBC | The Wall (5.7 mil/1.2) was steady, Better Late Than Never (4.8 mil/0.9) ticked down and The Brave (3.4 mil/0.6) dipped to its second-lowest numbers ever.
