Fox's The Gifted was watched by 4.8 million people in North America in its Monday night premiere, according to Deadline. Attributed partly to a lead-in from Lucifer, The Gifted has handly eclipsed the other recent Marvel-based TV show this month - ABC's Inhumans, which had 3.8m. Legion, which premiered earlier this year on FX, had 1.6m in its opening episode.
The Gifted aired in the 9 p.m. ET slot, which was dominated by CBS's Kevin Can Wait with 6.77m viewers.
