Not a lot of people tuned in for the final season premiere of “New Girl” on April 10. As has been the case for most of its life on FOX, however, the show made substantial gains with a week of delayed viewing.

“New Girl” doubled its adults 18-49 rating (0.7 to 1.4) in the Live +7 ratings for April 9-15, and it added 1.13 million viewers to its initial total of 1.83 million (a gain of 62 percent).

“Roseanne” again had the biggest overall gains: +2.3 in adults 18-49 and +6.34 million viewers. “iZombie” and “Designated Survivor” were the percentage-gain leaders.

Here are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for April 9-15, 2018. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
