empire-l7-ratings-dec-2-15

The fall finale of “Empire” was back on top of the Live +7 ratings for the week of Nov. 30. The FOX hit had the biggest total gains in both adults 18-49 (+2.1, 4.4 to 6.5) and viewers (+4.62 million) for the week.

“The Vampire Diaries” grew by the highest percentage for the week, increasing 120 percent in adults 18-49 (0.5 to 1.1). “Quantico’s” string of more than doubling its viewership ended, thanks in part to a presidential address delaying its start by 16 minutes. It still grew by 92 percent (1.2 to 2.3) in adults 18-49 and led the viewer percentage gains.

The Top 25 shows (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for Nov. 30-Dec. 6, 2015 are below. The rankings include first-run regular series only, not repeats or specials.
