Discovery’s top-rated show, “Gold Rush,” began its eighth season on Oct. 13, and it’s still bringing in strong numbers.

The premiere tied for the fourth-largest gain of the week among adults 18-49 on cable, growing by 0.6 points (0.7 to 1.3) with seven days of delayed viewing. It also added 1.46 million viewers, the third-biggest bump behind “American Horror Story: Cult” and the season finale of “Fear the Walking Dead.”

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for Oct. 9-15, 2017. Rankings include original series, movies and specials only, not repeats.
