“The Big Bang Theory” hit a same-day season low with its March 10 episode, but its DVR lift is right in line with what it’s been doing for most of 2015-16.

The show led the total gains in both adults 18-49 (+2.0, 3.5 to 5.5) and viewers (+4.8 million, 14.69 million to 19.49 million) for the week of March 7-13. The 18-49 gain was in line with its season average of 2.1 points added with a week of delayed viewing.

“Quantico” was the percentage leader for the week, growing by 109 percent in adults 18-49 (1.1 to 2.3) and 85 percent (3.96 million to 7.34 million) in viewers. Five shows doubled their 18-49 rating.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for March 7-13, 2016 are below. The rankings include first-run, regular series only, not repeats or specials.
