The season’s top-rated new drama among adults 18-49 moves into the top 10 overall with three days of delayed viewing. “The Good Doctor” scored a 3.2 rating in the demographic in the Live +3 ratings, up from 1.8 the night it aired.

It also moves slightly ahead of the top new comedy of the season, CBS’ “Young Sheldon,” whose three-day average is 3.1.
