The return of “Empire” and “Designated Survivor” reaped some of the biggest rewards from DVR and on-demand viewing in the week of March 20.

“Empire” kept its spot as the top broadcast show among adults 18-49 with a 4.5 rating, picking up half a point from its Live +3 figure, and also had the biggest gain in the demographic. It added 1.7 points within a week of its initial airing.

“Designated Survivor,” meanwhile, was the clear leader in total viewers added at 5.67 million (no other show added more than 3.82 million viewers). It more than doubled its initial audience and also led the percentage gains among viewers. It also was second to “Empire” in 18-49 gain.

“American Crime” and “Jane the Virgin” were the percentage leaders among the 18-49 demo, growing by 133 percent each (0.3 to 0.7).

Here are the Live +7 rankings for March 20-26, 2017. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
