Trivia

During a 2016 interview on Kumail Nanjiani's podcast "The X-Files Files," "X-Files" writer and "Millennium" showrunner Glen Morgan said that because "Millennium"'s ratings were low, they had the idea to do a "Millennium" episode involving the Peacock family characters from the "X-Files" episode "Home," for which Morgan was the cowriter. The Peacocks were a reclusive, heavily deformed, murderous family that had sustained itself by inbreeding for many generations and that kept its limbless matriarch under a bed. The original airing of "Home" had been controversial; it was the first "X-Files" episode to receive a TV-MA rating, and FOX refused to allow it to be rerun. But since it was also one of the highest-rated and most-talked-about "X-Files" episodes ever, Morgan thought the return of the characters might boost "Millennium"'s ratings. They cleared the idea with Peter Roth (then the head of FOX TV) and Karin Konoval, the actress who played Mrs. Peacock, but then Roth called Morgan back and said that "News Corp, FOX, lobbyists in Washington...somehow got wind and said 'those characters never appear on television again.'"

Glad I am not alone
20 November 2002 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

in having been impacted so profoundly by this television series. I so looked forward to Friday night and hadnt watched television on Friday night since Dukes of Hazzard and Incredible Hulk was in the lineup. Millenium was awesome television and what more can I say about Lance H. Amazing actor playing the role he was born to play. Yes, season 3 was definitely weaker but that doesnt prevent this from being one of the best shows on television. I couldnt believe how unceremoniously the show was taken off of the air, announcing right before the episode that this was the series finale. Millenium, Frank's Place, and Sports Night go down in history as my 3 most under-appreciated, phenomenal shows
