Ranks Among Highest-Rated New Cable Drama Premieres of The Past Year and Reps The Most Time-Shifted FX Series Premiere Ever in Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers

LOS ANGELES, February 13, 2017 - Legion, the highly-anticipated new drama series from Noah Hawley, delivered one of the best new cable drama premieres of the past year and set a record as the most time-shifted FX series premiere ever within the first three days.

On a Live+3 basis, the premiere telecast of Legion (Wednesday, February 8, 2017, 10-11:31 PM) generated 1.80 million Adults 18-49 and 3.27 million Total Viewers. Including two encore telecasts, Legion's total audience for the night was 2.39 million Adults 18-49 and 4.37 million Total Viewers. Note - these numbers do not include streaming or VOD viewing.

Of the 69 new primetime cable drama premieres over the past year, Legion ranks #3 in Adults 18-49 and #7 in Total Viewers.

The premiere of Legion was also the most time-shifted FX series premiere ever in Adults 18-49 (+102%) and Total Viewers (+101%).

For the night in basic cable, Legion ranked #1 in Adults 18-49, #3 in Adults 18-34, and #4 in Total Viewers.

Legion returns with an all new episode on Wednesday. "Chapter 2" (Airs February 15, 10:00 - 11:07 PM ET/PT) - David reflects on his past with the help of new friends. Written by Noah Hawley; directed by Michael Uppendahl.

Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David's routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy's concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she's built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists - Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) - open David's eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.

Hawley serves as Executive Producer, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron. Legion is the latest project from Hawley and Cameron, two of the executive producers of the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning FX limited series Fargo.

Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.
