The seventh-season finale of “Suits” — and the final episode for long-time regulars Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle — doubled its audience with a week of delayed viewing.

The finale, along with a second episode preceding it, rose from a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49 to 0.6 after seven days of delayed viewing. Both episodes also increased by better than 100 percent in total viewers: The 9 p.m. episode went from 1.09 million to 2.23 million, and the finale rose from 1.07 million to 2.44 million.

“Jersey Shore Family Vacation” had the biggest 18-49 gain, adding 0.9 to its initial rating. “Fear the Walking Dead” added the most viewers (1.5 million).

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for April 23-29, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
