The NFL rules the top of the cable Live +3 ratings for the week of Sept. 11 — no surprise there, with both Monday and Thursday games airing.

Just below the games, however, is “American Horror Story: Cult,” which put up big gains with three days of DVR viewing.

The FX show more than doubled its adults 18-49 rating from 1.2 to 2.5. It also doubled its total audience, going from 2.38 million to 4.76 million viewers.

Note: Three-day numbers for the first game of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” doubleheader weren’t available. Its same-day ratings, which were strong enough to lead the Live +3 charts on their own, are noted below with an asterisk.
