There's an Air Date for That "X-Files" Revival
While we continue to mourn the demise of the hastily announced and hastily aborted revival of "Twin Peaks" (which may not be quite dead yet according to Dana Ashbrook, but I refuse to get my hopes up by pretending it isn't totally kaput), we can at least take heart in the fact that another great nineties supernatural-drama is moving forward. Mulder and Scully will start flirting with each other and little green men again on Sunday, January 16, 2016, immediately after the NFC Championship, which I imagine is some sport of sports game. Unfortunately, if I know one thing about sports games (and really, I only know one thing), it's that they tend to go on and on and on and on beyond the point they are supposed to end. So expect episode one of the new "X-Files" to air on FOX sometime around 4 AM on January 17. But take heart that episode 2 airs the following night at 8 PM, and will continue to play on Mondays at 8 for the duration of its six-episode run. Start gussying up, little green men.
