The premiere of “Atlanta Robbin’ Season” has performed a little better than the show’s series debut in 2016 — which is to say, pretty well.

The FX show more than doubled its same-day ratings in adults 18-49 after three days of delayed viewing, going from 0.4 to 1.0. The 1.3 million adults 18-49 it drew is 7 percent higher than the series premiere. It went from outside the top 25 in the same-day ratings to tied for 14th in Live +3.

“The Walking Dead” was the biggest gainer over three days, improving by 1.4 points in adults 18-49 (2.9 to 4.3) and by 3.06 million total viewers.
