Another week, another week of big delayed-viewing gains for “This Is Us”: The NBC hit easily added the most to both its adults 18-49 rating and its total audience in the week of Feb. 20.

The show doubled its 18-49 rating, going from 2.5 to 5.0, and added 6.22 million viewers with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing. Its 18-49 gain was 0.7 ahead and its viewer gain 1.28 million people ahead of the second-place finisher (“The Big Bang Theory” in both cases).

Seven shows at least doubled their 18-49 rating, with “Agents of SHIELD” and “Riverdale” leading the percentage gains with a 133 percent jump each.

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