The March 10 season finale of “Gold Rush” on Discovery put up solid numbers per usual, both on the night it aired and with three days of catchup viewing added.

The show rose six tenths of a point among adults 18-49 with three days of DVR and on-demand viewing, finishing with a 1.6. It also added 1.34 million viewers, bringing its three-day total to 4.9 million. Both numbers were in line with the previous week’s episode.

“The Walking Dead” is No. 1 in both measures, as it almost always is, with a 6.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 13.68 million viewers.
