In the larger TV universe, “Brockmire” doesn’t draw much of an audience. By IFC standards, though, the comedy starring Hank Azaria and Amanda Peet is doing pretty well — especially in the days after it airs.

The show’s May 10 episode tripled its adults 18-49 rating (0.1 to 0.3) and more than tripled its total audience (190,000 to 625,000) with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing. Both the initial numbers and the delayed-viewing figures compare favorably to “Portlandia,” arguably IFC’s best-known show.

“Better Call Saul” was the leader in total gains for the week of May 8, growing by a full point in adults 18-49 (0.6 to 1.6) and adding 2.4 million viewers.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for May 8-14, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
