The cable Live +7 rankings for Oct. 31-Nov. 6 hold little surprise: Once again, “The Walking Dead” and “American Horror Story: Roanoke” stand well above the rest of the pack.

“The Walking Dead” grew by 2.9 points in adults 18-49 (5.7 to 8.6), equaling its gain from the previous week. It also added nearly 5.5 million viewers. “AHS” rose from a season-low 1.2 in the same-day 18-49 ratings to a 3.1 and from 2.2 million viewers to 5.57 million.

Three shows — Freeform’s “Ben & Lauren,” HBO’s “Insecure” and Syfy’s “Aftermath” — tripled their 18-49 ratings (although all of them started at just a 0.1). “You’re the Worst” added the highest percentage of viewers, nearly tripling (115,000 to 344,ooo).

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for Oct. 31-Nov. 6, 2016. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
