The original show may have gone off of the air in 2002…but it’s obviously still a fan favorite.
The Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny sci-fi series went off the air when network television ratings were at an all-time high… which is why it’s so amazing that the show’s reboot debut (say that three times fast) had 16.19 million viewers. To put that into perspective, that’s a higher rating than what the final two seasons of the original series were able to pull in, which is pretty freaking impressive.
According to PerezHilton, having a huge football game probably helped with the huge viewership,but honestly, I’m pretty sure Monday’s regular time slot will most likely also be a hit.
Did you watch the new X Files?! Tell us your thoughts on if the show is better/worse/same as the original!

Are you insane, Gillian Anderson?!
The X-Files are terrifying, and now Gillian’s kids Felix and Oscar know it. The Anderson spawn are 7 and 9 respectively, which is wayyyy to young to watch the creeptastic perfection that is the X-Files, but that’s just one loner weirdo’s opinion, I GUESS.
Anderson, who obvi stars in Fox’s six-episode X-Files revival, stopped by The Talk on Wednesday to talk about being a bad parent:
“It backfired so badly. I literally chose the least scary of all of them, which also happens to be my favorite episode, which is called ‘Bad Blood,’ ” Anderson explains.
Unfortunately the “least scary” episode — which features Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson) investigating possible vampires — still managed to terrify Anderson’s sons.
“They had nightmares for weeks!” Anderson says. “They’ve seen Harry Potter, they’ve seen Voldemort, they’ve seen Orcs, they’ve seen everything [and this scared them]. It literally is the bane of my existence.”
The X-Files returns to Fox on Jan. 24 at 10 p.m ET, and I HIGHLY DOUBT Gillian’s kids will be tuning in.
Are you excited for the X-Files revival?

Shhh….don’t tell the director!
As we’ve reported, ‘The X-Files’ is returning to Fox for six new episodes this coming January and I could NOT BE HAPPIER….THAT IS, UNTIL Gillian Anderson snuck her ADORABLE French Bulldog onto the set yesterday!
Gillian had a personal babysitter for her dog, which she coddled on set and who seemed contentrelieving itself on the nearest piece of onset grass. Whatever keeps Agent Dana Scully happy, am I rite?

I know they’re riding high on their new X Files Fox reboot, but STILL…
As we reported yesterday, David Duchovny is now a rocker (in that a 52 year old who is famous and can make an album is a “rocker,”) and Gillian Anderson made a surprise appearance during his concert at the Cutting Room.
Gillian herself wanted to get in on the self-congratulating, so she performed a version of the Neil Young classic, “Helpless.” David was playing to promote his debut album “Hell or Highwater,” but I’m sure the two are going to be publicity-ing up their new X Files stint, which appears in January.
They did give fans of the show what they always wanted to see, a couple kisses. Which again, was probably to promote but there have always been some weird rumors about the two of them, so who knows.
What do you think? Did these two ever hook up? WILL they?
