“Empire” was off for the World Series the week of Oct. 26, so its title as the top-rated and most DVR’d scripted show in adults 18-49 passed to “The Big Bang Theory.”

The CBS comedy was the biggest total gainer for week 6, growing by 1.9 points in adults 18-49 (4.4 to 6.3) in the Live +7 ratings. “Blindspot” continued to be the biggest gainer in viewers, adding just over 5.4 million people to its same-day total.

Two premieres also made the Top 25 gainers in adults 18-49: “Supergirl” added 1.3 points (3.1 to 4.4), while “Grimm” grew by 0.8 (1.1 to 1.9).

In percentage gains, seven shows at least doubled their 18-49 rating, with “America’s Next Top Model” (0.2 to 0.5, +150 percent) on top. “Quantico” also grew by 115 percent in viewers (4.05 million to 8.70 million), the first time a broadcast show has doubled its total viewership this season.

The Top 25 DVR’d shows (including ties) for the week of Oct. 26-Nov. 1, 2015 are below. The list includes only original, reguarly scheduled episodes, not repeats or specials.
