The series premiere of “Siren” on Freeform got a sizable boost from delayed viewing in the week of March 26.

Both the premiere and a second episode that followed it doubled their adults 18-49 ratings after seven days, growing from 0.3 to 0.6. The debut also came close to doubling its total audience, rising from 873,000 to 1.7 million.

Per usual, “The Walking Dead” had the largest total gains: +1.8 in adults 18-49 and +3.68 million viewers.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for March 26-April 1, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
