The week of Feb. 29-March 6 was a relatively quiet one in the same-day ratings, and the pattern holds with the Live +3 numbers.

“Grey’s Anatomy” had the most growth among adults 18-49, rising 1.3 points (2.2 to 3.5). “Blindspot,” which has been a strong DVR performer all season, resumed that pattern with its first episode in three months, growing by 1.1 points in adults 18-49 (1.8 to 2.9) and adding 3.62 million viewers to its same-day total.

“Quantico” had the biggest percentage gain of the week, rising by 91 percent (1.1 to 2.1) after three days of delayed viewing.
