There was some good news and bad news for The CW’s Monday lineup in the Live +7 ratings for Oct. 12-18.

The good news: The second-season premiere of “Jane the Virgin” doubled its 18-49 rating from 0.4 to 0.8 thanks to delayed viewing. The bad news: The debut of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” didn’t grow at all in the demo — holding fast at 0.3 — and increased by only 21 percent in viewers. For a scripted show not to grow at all in Live +7 is almost unheard of in the past few years.

FOX’s “Empire” was once again the biggest gainer in adults 18-49, growing from a 4.7 to a 7.1. “The Blacklist” grew by the biggest percentage, increasing from 1.4 to a 3.0 (114 percent).

In viewers added, NBC’s “Blindspot” remained No. 1 with growth of 5.34 million people. “Quantico” topped the viewer percentage gain, increasing by 87 percent from its same-day audience of 5.3 million.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) for the week of Oct. 12-18 are below. The list includes only original episodes of series, not repeats or specials.
