orphan-black-l7-ratings-april-14-16

The Season 4 premiere of “Orphan Black” was not the biggest gainer in terms of raw numbers for the week of April 11-17, but it was the runaway percentage-gain leader.

The BBC America show tripled its adults 18-49 rating (0.1 to 0.3), tying for the top spot with “Banshee” in that measure. It also more than tripled its total audience, growing from 229,000 to 720,000 viewers.

“Fear the Walking Dead” had the largest total growth of the week, rising by 1.4 points in adults 18-49 and by 2.74 million viewers.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for April 11-17, 2016 are below. The rankings include first-run, regular series and specials only, not repeats.
