“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” sits atop the Live +7 rankings in adults 18-49 for Jan. 2-8. The show had a gain of 0.8 points in the demographic (0.7 to 1.5), edging the 0.7 bumps for “Teen Mom II” and “Leah Remini: Scientology & the Aftermath.”

“Vikings” (+1.66 million) added the most viewers. The premieres of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “Man Seeking Woman” also had decent gains for FXX. Episode 2 of “Nashville” on CMT doubled its 18-49 rating from 0.3 to 0.6 and grew by about 930,000 viewers — and it actually outperformed the season premiere that aired an hour earlier. The debut grew by 0.2 in adults 18-49 and 771,00 viewers.
