We're just so glad he seems happy!

Scully and Mulder are on the case… and so is the rest of America!
If you're one of the millions of people who tuned in to watch the Panthers and Broncos crush the Cardinals and Patriots on Sunday, then you probably also noticed that FOX was heavily promoting the return of The X-Files shortly after the games.
The classic Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny sci-fi series went off the air way back in 2002 when network television ratings were at an all-time high… which is why we're super shocked by how many people actually tuned in for the mini-series' premiere!
Believe it or not, the reboot's debut managed to pull in 16.19 million viewers — that's a higher rating than what the final two seasons of the original series were able to achieve!
But while the numbers are impressive, it's important to note that the NFL lead-in of 45.74 million probably helped with the huge viewership, so it should be interesting to see if Monday's regular time slot has similar success.

Kristen Stewart isn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers!
In Hollywood, one of the most controversial topics today is gender equality. As we reported, readers were shocked when they learned that The X-Files tried to pay Gillian Anderson half of what they offered David Duchovny!
Recently, KStew visited the Variety Studio in Sundance to promote her new film Certain Women, and was asked about the issue. Let's just say her response may surprise you.
First, the 25-year-old concedes that she is a highly paid, in-demand actress who hasn't experienced the same prejudices that other thespians have faced.
After over ten long years, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully were back on primetime TV Sunday night when The X-Files revival premiered on FOX!
While the premiere episode lacked some of the fire of the original series, the reboot episode teased a ton of conspiracies, action, and even supposedly dead characters to come!
The episode, titled My Struggle, starts with David Duchovny's groggy voice-over accompanied with images of memorable mutants from the show — including an inbred Peacock brother, the brain-sucking Rob Roberts, and the grotesque flukeman!

This is seriously not okay!
The X-Files isn't the first classic series to get a second life on TV, so you'd think the producers and network would know better than to try and pull some gender wage gap shenanigans on their stars.
Well… you'd be wrong.
As it turns out, Gillian Anderson was offered only half of what David Duchovny was initially going to make for being part of FOX's six-part reboot!
Gillian spoke to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month about being a victim of the gender wage-gap, saying:
David Duchovny is no stranger to showing off his bod — he was in the buff all the time in his Showtime series Californication!
Unfortunately, the X-Files revival is on network TV instead and not premium cable — so we've been expecting the actor to remain fully clothed.
But according to the 55-year-old, Fox Mulder will be "somewhat disrobed" in an episode of the upcoming FOX miniseries!
Sitting down with Australian radio hosts on 2DayFM Breakfast on Monday, the actor was asked if there would be any nudity in the upcoming reunion — and his response was more than we could have ever hoped for! He said:
