FX’s series premiere of “Legion” followed closely behind in the second spot with a 0.7, and 1.622 million viewers. That’s pretty well in line with the premiere of “Taboo” (0.6, 1.84 million) last month.

Wednesday cable ratings: ‘Legion’ premiere brings in strong numbers
Quote:
While the demo delivery was in line with other debuts, this was the smallest Live+same day total viewership for a recent FX drama premiere, below the now defunct Bastard Executioner (2.1 million, 0.8 in 18–49) and Taboo, which opened last month to 1.8 million viewers and a 0.6 in 18-49 in the demo. The Strain started with 3 million viewers and 1.2 in 18-49, Fargo with 2.7 million and 0.8, Tyrant with 2.1 million, 0.6; and American Crime Story with the whopping 5.1 million and 2.0 (all L+SD)

‘Legion’ Off To So-So Ratings Start At FX
Mixed messages, but I think 1.622 mil might be below expectations if the second article is anything to go by. It's not too bad though and the sky isn't falling just yet. I hope the good reviews can bring a little bit more buzz in order to help the series grow over the course of this season.

I also forgot about the whole thing where Legion flew in props from the X-Men films. Those could easily be used at some point in this season to hint at the connections between the two. Haven't spotted any. Though the wheelchair in episode 1 could be the more low-key one from Days of Future Past? That's all I've got so far.

Yeah, I imagine it'd be a worse case if there was bad word of mouth in addition to mixed ratings, but these numbers don't look terrible and there's been mostly, if not exclusively, positive news in regards to this show.

Yeah sounds about right. The great reception should really help. Also:
Quote:
Writing for Screen Rant, J.M. Brandt noted that FX extensively advertised the series, but was debuting the 90 minute (with commercials) premiere at 10pm on a Wednesday night, later than other genre "monster hits" like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Brandt felt that the series' success would heavily depend on DVR viewing "to bolster what might be a likely smallish live audience"
We don't have DVR numbers yet though.

If FX bosses like it legion will be on air for awhile.

FX showed a lot of support for the amerikans and it has never been a huge ratings hit.

That's fair. I think the prospect of possible tie-ins with the movies might also help Legion going forward. Though I hope that is limited to specific story lines or maybe one episode or something.

FOX engaged in negotiations for over a year with Marvel to get this and Hellfire/Heaven on the air, so Legion will get a very long leash. Hopefully the ratings tick up next week because the show's treatment of reality creates a strong barrier to entry for latecomers.

My feelings is the confusion is it or isn't part of film universe may be season 1 is mostly in david's head.season 2 could be when they include something to tie in to films.although i think Xavier is about all we would possibly get directly tied to X-Men.

Not concerned about the ratings, FX has a different threshold compared to other channels and premium cable.

http://uproxx.com/entertainment/how-...iable-network/

Basically the shows on FX have to fulfill three criteria: Do we (FX) like it? Does the audience like it? Do the critics like it?

I'm sure this show satisfies all three requirements - those that tune it probably like it a lot. I have a tremendous amount of faith in Landgraf.

Also whether this show eventually ties in the movies is irrelevant, it's made for the Mad Men crowd who don't necessarily like superhero flicks or the genre. It's a challenging and at times, alienating program but hopefully people will tune in because it is a Noah Hawley show that happens to feature mutants.

All of those are fair points. Hoping to see much more of this show, but first the inevitable wait for episode 2.

The ratings are fine. This is Cable anyway, I guess as long as the ratings are steady it would be renewed easily. Though if it was aired in ABC or CBS or Fox and it got those numbers and it would be toast.

Just finished watching the premiere and loved it. Very intrigued by where this show can go. Only issue I have is the action cgi, it was pretty crappy.

I quite like it,but the "trippy-ness" can get a little too much,and will certainly alienate a more general audience.

I'd love to see that as it might allow for a portrayal of Charles's powers we've never seen before; hell I'd love to see Xavier manifest on the astral plane.

Really hope the ratings hold up. Comparing it to taboo is wrong though. That's on bbc in the uk so doesn't rely on viewing figures although they are in the millions.
