'The X-Files' Scores Huge Ratings -- See Details

1/25/2016 2:34pm EST
The X-Files
Bringing back The X-Files proved to be huge for FOX on Sunday night, as more than 13 million viewers tuned in to watch former FBI agents Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) in the premiere of the new six-episode event series.

But is that number really an accurate representation of the show's success? And what does it mean for the network's recently announced plan of resurrecting other past series for new installments?

13 million is an impressive number, absolutely. That's on par with things like NBC's The Voice (which normally does about 12 million on its best d...

Fans of hit 90s sci-fi show 'The X-Files' have been eagerly awaiting the January 2016 return of the hit series.

Production on the show began this summer, but the set has remained as closely guarded as some of the government secrets the show is famous for exploring.

Not surprisingly, die-hard fans have freaked out over even the smallest details about the production, like a few photographs tweeted out by stars Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and others last month.

Fox has finally shared the first official look at Mulder and Scully together again with the release of a 15-second teaser for...

'Aquarius' Premiere Recap: Mulder And Manson Make For A Surprisi
This is a recap, not a review. But when has that ever stopped me from providing you, my one reader (hi, Ma!), with my opinion? Aquarius is kind of a bore. Yes, it's nice to see David Duchovny (hi, Fox Mulder!) back on network TV. The production values are high. The cinematography is suitably dingy for a cop show. The music budget must be astronomical because man, did they obtain every 60s song you can imagine. A dude even gets slashed by a razor to "Daydream Believer!" But the goings-on are kind of a bore. In a way, the Manson component hinders the show. They're fusing historical fact with ...

'Californication' Season 4 Advance Review

1/8/2011 7:08pm EST
My Showtime preview concludes today with a look at season four of Californication, which debuts tomorrow on the premium network along with Episodes and Shameless.

A friend of mine once told me that she thought David Duchovny was a one-trick pony. I had to agree with her; I loved him in his now-iconic role as Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files, but then I saw the absolutely dreadful Evolution and couldn't believe I was watching the same actor. Even in the second X-Files feature, he seemed at times to be simply going through the motions. To me, his performance here feels like a versi...

What Can We Expect To See In Season 4 Of 'Californication'?

Californication Season 4
So, “Californication” is returning soon, and everyone’s favorite blind-in-one-eye leading man David Duchovny reprises his role as the perpetually creatively-blocked novelist Hank Moody. And I bet you real money he’s going to be having sex with people this season. Lots of sex. That he’ll feel bad about later.

Actually, that’s the entirety of “Californication.” Hank Moody has sex, feels bad about it later, then does it again. But gosh if he isn’t just so darn loveable.

I know the show is about that cycle. I know the show is supposed to be about how Hank Moody is a sex addict, and how he’s t...
