Whilst obviously not a Ten Thirteen production, Chris Carter often mentioned his inspirations came from Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Darren McGavin played the role of Kolchak and also appeared in Millennium as Frank Black's father. 

Kolchak was originally two made-for-TV movies that aired in the early 70's, and featured the adventures of Carl Kolchak, a down-on-the heels reporter who ran afoul of a vampire in Las Vegas and an alchemist in Seattle. These movies proved popular enough that they were spun off into a series, which placed Kolchak in Chicago with the Independent News Service. Each week for 20 weeks he investigated various supernatural and supernatural creatures, ranging from aliens to vampires to Aztec sacrificial cults.
