“Archer’s” move to FXX didn’t seem to affect its audience too much.

The show’s April 5 debut on FXX after seven seasons on FX posted a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49 the night it aired. With a week of DVR and on-demand viewing, it doubled to a 0.8. That’s similar to its pattern last season, when a typical episode would debut to a 0.4 and grow to 0.8-1.0 in the week after.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for April 3-9, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
