The initial overnight ratings are in for The Gifted, and so far they’re good, especially when considering the amount of competition on in the Monday at 9PM time slot.
The final numbers can and will go up once DVR and other things are factored in, but as far as overnights, The Gifted premiere “eXposed” is looking at a 1.5/5 in the Ages 18-49 demographic – the top scripted program in the hour – and 4.85 million viewers.
(Comparatively, the heavily-hyped Marvel-ABC collaboration Inhumans which also features a family on the run, had an 0.9/4 in the demo and 3.78 million in the overnights.)
