Recently released FCC complaints about the police procedural *Lucifer* show that the series not only drew ire for the usual reasons (sex and violence), but for something far, far more sinister: being a plot by the literal devil to corrupt humanity, summon the Four Horsemen, and bring about the apocalypse.
