As has been the case for all of its run so far, “American Horror Story: Cult” was by far the biggest gainer in delayed viewing for the week of Oct. 2.

The FX show added 1.5 points to its initial adults 18-49 rating (1.1 to 2.6) with a week of DVR and on-demand playback, matching the previous week. It also more than doubled the second-place show (“Teen Mom II,” +0.7).

In viewers, “Cult’s” 2.82 million-person growth after a week beat “Fear the Walking Dead” (+1.51 million) by a wide margin as well.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for Oct. 2-8, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
