The season finale of “Krypton” on Syfy didn’t draw a lot of eyeballs to its initial airing — it earned just a 0.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 558,000 viewers.

It gained quite a bit, however, with a week of delayed viewing. “Krypton” pulled off the rare feat of quintupling its 18-49 rating, rising to 0.5 after seven days of catchup. It also more than doubled its total audience, to 1.47 million.

“Jersey Shore Family Vacation” had the biggest total gains for the week, growing by 0.8 in adults 18-49 and 1.35 million total viewers.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for May 21-27, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
