‘The Walking Dead’ outpaces everything else in cable Live +7 ratings for Nov. 27-Dec. 3

“The Walking Dead” was at a six-year low in the same-day ratings for its Dec. 3 episode. But it was still a top show on cable, and after a week of delayed viewing its numbers are ahead of everything else.

The episode grew from a 3.3 rating to a 5.2 in adults 18-49 with seven days of DVR playback. It also added 4.15 million viewers. Both numbers are a little behind “TWD’s” average gains this season, but they were still far and away the biggest ones for the week.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for Nov. 27-Dec. 3, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
