The premiere of the second “American Crime Story” on FX put up pretty good delayed-viewing numbers for the week of Jan. 15.

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace” added 0.6 points to its adults 18-49 rating (0.7 to 1.3) with seven days of catchup viewing. That ties for the second-largest gain of the week in the demographic, behind “Teen Mom’s” 0.8-point boost.

“ACS: Versace” added the most viewers of any show, growing by 1.76 million people for a seven-day total of just under 4 million.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for Jan. 15-21, 2018. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
