‘X-Files’ Fans Rip Fox for NFC Championship Running Late

Many who used DVR to record series’ return missed first half of episode

Fox’s coverage of the NFC Championship game last night has some “X-Files” fans crying conspiracy.

Fans looking forward to the return of the network’s popular sci-fi procedural after more than a decade were not too happy that the network’s coverage of the NFC Championship game cut into the premiere episode.

The game ended right around 10 p.m. ET, but with post-game coverage, “The X-Files” didn’t actually get started until almost half an hour later. For those with their DVRs set from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET or 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. PT, that means they missed about half the episode.
