“Atlanta” and “The Alienist” each put up more solid gains from delayed viewing in the week of March 7.

Both shows grew by half a point (0.4 to 0.9) among adults 18-49 after seven days of delayed viewing. That ties for the fourth-largest gain of the week behind “The Walking Dead” (+1.6), “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (+0.7) and “Vanderpump Rules.”

“The Alienist” had the second-largest viewer boost (1.88 million) behind “The Walking Dead,” and “Atlanta’s” 900,000-viewer bump tied for 14th. Both shows more than doubled their initial audience.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for March 5-11, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
