Cable Live +3 ratings, April 18-24: ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ lead

peter-dinklage-game-of-thrones-s6

The Season 6 premiere of “Game of Thrones” was the No. 1 show on cable in the same-day ratings for April 18-24, and it keeps that spot in the Live +3 rankings.

It’s not, however, the biggest beneficiary of three days of DVR playback. Somewhat surprisingly, “Game of Thrones” was only the fourth-biggest gainer of the week, falling behind “Fear the Walking Dead,” the finale of “Better Call Saul” and “Teen Mom II” in adults 18-49 and behind “Fear,” “Saul” and “Vikings” in viewers.
