The season finale of “This Is Us” and “Designated Survivor” had some of the biggest gains thanks to DVR and on-demand viewing in the week of March 13.

“This Is Us” rose by 1.9 points among adults 18-49 in the Live +7 ratings to finish with a 5.3. The final rating is equal to its next-to-last episode (which had bigger growth at +2.3). “Designated Survivor” added the most total viewers — 5.53 million to 4.94 million for “This Is Us.”

“This Is Us,” however, started at a much higher point and finishes No. 1 in both measures for the week. NBC says the show is the first scripted series on the network to lead an in-season week in total viewers since the “Frasier” series finale in May 2004.

“The 100” (+133 percent in adults 18-49) and “Bones” (+100 percent in viewers) were the week’s percentage-gain leaders.

Here are the Live +7 rankings for March 13-19, 2017. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
