The series premiere of “SWAT” didn’t quite make the top 25 in adults 18-49 in the same-day ratings for Oct. 30-Nov. 5.

Three days of delayed viewing, however, helped it climb into the rankings. The CBS show added 0.6 points to its 18-49 rating, growing from 1.1 to 1.7. That tied for 22nd place with several other shows, including its lead-in “Life in Pieces.” “SWAT” also grew by 3.07 million viewers after three days, improving to 9.89 million.

The final two games of the World Series remained at the top of the rankings. As usual, “This Is Us” and “The Good Doctor” had the biggest gains from delayed viewing.
