The two highest-rated shows on TV are, unsurprisingly, at the top of the Live +7 ratings charts for the week of March 28-April 3.

“The Big Bang Theory” posted the week’s biggest gains, growing by 2 points in adults 18-49 (3.5 to 5.5) and 4.99 million viewers (14.2 million to 19.19 million). “Empire” ranked second in both measures, gaining 1.7 points in the demo (4.8 to 6.5, the week’s top rating) and 4.35 million viewers (12.4 million to 16.75 million).

“Quantico” was the percentage-gain leader in both 18-49 (1.0 to 2.1, +110 percent) and viewers (+83 percent). Four shows at least doubled their 18-49 rating.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for March 28-April 3, 2016 are below. The rankings include first-run, regular series only, not repeats.
