Nothing on cable came close to the “Game of Thrones” premiere in the ratings for the week of July 10, so it’s no surprise the show is also the biggest gainer of the week in the Live +7 ratings.

“Thrones” picked up 1.1 points among adults 18-49 (4.7 to 5.8) with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing, along with 2.62 million viewers (10.12 million to 12.74 million).

The percentage-gain leaders for the week were “Nashville,” which quadrupled its 18-49 rating (0.1 to 0.4), and “Orphan Black,” which grew by 194 percent (236,000 to 694,000) in total viewers.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for July 10-16, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
