“Designated Survivor” continued its run as one of the most DVR’d shows of the season in the week of March 27.

The ABC drama finished second in adults 18-49 gain (+1.5, a tenth of a point behind “The Big Bang Theory”) and first in viewers added (5.79 million). It was also the percentage-gain leader in both measures, more than doubling its initial 18-49 and total viewer tallies.

Six other shows — “Jane the Virgin,” “Chicago Med,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Originals,” “The 100” and “Reign” — also at least doubled their 18-49 ratings.

Here are the Live +7 rankings for March 27-April 2, 2017. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
