“The Last O.G.” has performed well so far for TBS (which has already picked up a second season), both the night it airs and in delayed viewing.

The show’s second episode sits at a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 after a week of delayed viewing, up from 0.6 for its initial airing. The half-point gain tied for the sixth-best bump on cable in the week of April 9.

“The Last O.G.” also added 1.09 million viewers, the seventh-biggest gain of the week. It’s the No. 1 comedy on cable thus far in 2018.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for April 9-15, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
