NBC’s “Chicago PD” has become one of the biggest gainers from delayed viewing this season — including in the week of Oct. 16.

The show was one of 11 series to double its adults 18-49 rating with seven days of DVR and on-demand viewing; it rose from a 1.1 rating to 2.2. That’s consistent with its average bump over the first three weeks of the season, and for this week, its 1.1-point gain tied for sixth largest.

It also added 4.3 million total viewers, good for fifth in the week and slightly better than its average 4.1 million-viewer gain in the previous three weeks.

Per usual, “This Is Us” and “The Good Doctor” got the biggest boosts in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

Here are the Live +7 rankings for Oct. 16-22, 2017. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
