The CW’s “Jane the Virgin” not only scored the week’s biggest percentage gain in the adults 18-49 demo, but in the total viewers measure as well.

After a week of delayed viewing, “Jane” took the top spots in both charts with a 200% demo gain (+0.4) and a 135% viewer gain (+824,000). However, it was ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” that posted the week’s largest actual gain in the 18-49 demo, by growing from its initial 1.5 L+SD rating to a 2.7 (+1.2, +80%).

Additionally, NBC’s “New Amsterdam” rose from its initial 4.61 million viewers to a 9.38 million viewer audience (+4.77 million, +103%), growing more in the measure than any of the week’s other broadcast shows. “Amsterdam,” “Jane the Virgin,” and ABC’s “The Rookie,” were the week’s only shows to more than double their initial audiences.

Here are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for April 8-14, 2019. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
