“The Assassination of Gianni Versace” made big gains after three days of delayed viewing of its Jan. 24 episode.

The FX series, the second installment of “American Crime Story,” more than doubled its same-day ratings in both adults 18-49 (0.4 to 1.0) and total viewers (1.43 million to 2.98 million) with three days of DVR and on-demand playback. It tied “Teen Mom” for the biggest adults 18-49 boost and had the largest bump in viewers.

The 25th anniversary of “WWE Monday Night Raw” held onto the top spots in both adults 18-49 and viewers.
