An unusually large number of shows — 13 in all — in the week of Oct. 30 doubled their adults 18-49 ratings after seven days of delayed viewing.

That’s the highest number so far this season and includes shows with already-strong ratings like “This Is Us” and “The Good Doctor.” Those two scored the week’s largest total gains in the 18-49 demographic (+2.4 and +2.0) while also growing by more than 100 percent.

The other shows that at least doubled their numbers are “Jane the Virgin,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Designated Survivor,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Chicago Fire,” “The Orville,” “Scorpion,” “The Flash,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Inhumans” and “Dynasty.”

Here are the Live +7 rankings for Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2017. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
