The Jan. 8 episode of “The Brave” suffered its lowest same-day ratings of the season: 0.5 in adults 18-49 and 2.93 million viewers opposite college football’s national title game.

The episode more than doubled its audience with seven days of delayed viewing, rising to 1.2 and 6.16 million viewers. It led the percentage gains in both measures for the week. Still, its total gains (0.7 and 3.23 million viewers) are in line with its average bump (0.7, 3.05 million) for the season to date, which means “The Brave” was still below its season average.

“This Is Us” (+2.3 in adults 18-49 and “The Good Doctor” (+7.11 million viewers) had the biggest total gains for the week, as they’ve done for much of the season.

Here are the Live +7 rankings for the week of Jan. 8-14. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
