The June 24 episode of “Doctor Who” quadrupled its adults 18-49 rating with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing.

Granted, it started with a meager 0.1 rating and grew to 0.4, a gain of only 0.3. But it’s still pretty rare for a show to post that big a percentage gain, even from a low starting point.

The season finale of “Better Call Saul” had the biggest raw gains for the week, adding 0.9 to its 18-49 rating (0.6 to 1.5) and 2.34 million people to its total-viewer count (1.85 million to 4.19 million).

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for June 19-25, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
