“Manifest” continued to perform well in the broadcast live +7 ratings for the week of Oct. 1.

The NBC freshman drama drew the second largest adults 18-49 gain of any of the week’s shows, rising from its initial 1.8 L+SD rating to a 3.6 final (+1.8, +100%), placing just behind “This is Us” (+1.9, +79%) in the demo. “Manifest” did, however, have the week’s biggest gain in total viewers, raking in an additional 7.51 million (+89%) with seven-days of delayed viewing.

ABC’s freshman drama, “A Million Little Things,” meanwhile, had some of the week’s biggest percentage gains, growing 138% in adults 18-49 (+1.1) and 98% in total viewers (+3.71 million).
