“Nashville’s” return to CMT brought with it a decent bump from its initial ratings to the Live +7 numbers.

The show more than doubled both its 18-49 rating (0.2 to 0.5) and its total audience (781,000 to 1.94 million) with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing. That’s in line with the show’s performance in the first half of the season.

“Fear the Walking Dead” had the biggest gains in both adults 18-49 and viewers. It’s still far below where it was last season, however, with the premiere’s 2.1 rating less than half of the Season 2 premiere’s 4.5.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for May 29-June 4, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
