quantico-l7-ratings-oct-5-11

Five shows on the broadcast networks at least doubled their 18-49 rating in week 3 of the 2015-16 season. That’s a common occurrence on cable, but rare to see for over-the-air shows.

ABC’s “Quantico” (1.6 same-day to 3.4 in Live +7) was the biggest percentage gainer, growing by 113 percent — and fifth in asbolute gains with the 1.8-point lift. While percentage increase doesn’t mean as much as a show’s total gain — it’s easier for shows with low ratings to post big percentage increases — it’s noteworthy that so many shows had 100 percent increases or more.

“Empire” (+2.3 points) and “The Big Bang Theory” (+2.1) were once again the leaders in 18-49 gains, while “Blindspot” (+5.65 million viewers) added the most eyeballs overall. Several CW premieres are among the week’s percentage leaders, but “The Flash” also made it into the Top 25 for total gains in adults 18-49. Its premiere went from a 1.4 to a 2.4.

The Top 25 gainers in Live +7 (including ties) for Oct. 5-11 are below. The list includes only original series, not repeats or specials.
