Cable Live +7 ratings, April 18-24: ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ ‘Better Call Saul’ outgain ‘Game of Thrones’ premiere

better call saul april 18 2016

“Game of Thrones” added a full point to its same-day adults 18-49 rating in the Live +7 ratings for April 18-24. That’s good, but not good enough to top the charts for the week.

“Fear the Walking Dead” (+1.5) and the season finale of “Better Call Saul” (+1.2) both grew by more than “Game of Thrones” did in adults 18-49. The pattern held in the viewer gains, with “Fear” (+2.75 million people) again leading the way.

Eight shows tripled their 18-49 ratings, although of those only “The Americans” (0.2 to 0.6) started at more than a 0.1 same-day rating.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for April 18-24, 2016 are below. The rankings include first-run, regular series and specials only, not repeats.
