people-v-oj-simpson-l3-ratings-april-5-16

The premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead” ended the week of April 4-10 as the top non-sports program on cable, but it was not quite the biggest gainer in delayed viewing.

That honor goes to the finale of “The People v. O.J. Simpson” on FX, which tops the Live +7 charts for the week. It added 1.6 points in adults 18-49 (1.3 to 2.9), edging out the 1.4-point gain for “Fear the Walking Dead” (3.1 to 4.5). The FX show also led the viewer gains, adding 3.52 million people and growing from 3.27 million to 6.79 million viewers.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for April 4-10, 2016 are below. The rankings include first-run, regular series and specials only, not repeats.
