It may be a lost cause considering a lot of eyes are going to be on Monday Night Football just to see the next trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The X-Files returns for a special six-episode event starting 10 p.m. Jan. 24, 2016 immediately following the NFC Championship Game and part two of the season premiere will continue at 8 p.m. on Jan. 25.
